New uses for old stockings revealed
A contributor to a green-thinking website has highlighted the usefulness of old stockings adding that the hosiery is a great way to add comfort to the lives of all members of a household.

Thomas La Mance of Prewitt, New Mexico, stated on Mother Earth News that unused nylon stockings were perfect as a filler for worn out or sagging items of furniture around the home.

He said that those wanting to make or boost a washable stuffed toy could use tights as stuffing so that children could enjoy clean teddies, with adults also benefiting from the wadding when tired-looking chairs are rejuvenated with the same material.

Mr La Mance concluded: "Pamper your pet with a mattress stuffed with old nylon stockings.

"It can be washed and dried quickly and does not get lumpy."

Earlier this week, This is Nottingham reported that charity shopping could dig up bargains, including stockings, ties and cardigans.
