Old socks 'can be reused elsewhere'
Environmentally-friendly website Planet Green has offered a range of tips to sock-wearers for extra uses for the piece of clothing after its foot-based life cycle ends.

Writer Natalie Cook highlighted the usefulness of socks as shoe covers, with the hosiery protecting shoes from dust and dirt, especially when packing them in a suitcase.

Items for postage can also be protected, she adds, with the legwear providing cushioning for valuables.

For children, the sock puppet can provide entertainment and save money at the toy shop, while a "sock mat" made from a patchwork of the footwear can add comfort to a carpet.

She concluded: "Socks make the best dust mitts - hands down! Stick your hand in the hole and let the good times roll."

Comedy resource Chortle reported that this year that the Edinburgh Fringe Festival saw a performance by the Return of the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre.
