Socks rescued and reused for household items


Socks are one article of clothing that seem to wear out the quickest. Not to mention, you’ve probably collected a whole pile of orphaned ones and ones that didn’t belong to you in the first place. It’s a total shame to have to get rid of them, so why not come up with cool DIY projects and recycle them into something a bit more useful. Here are some cool ways to reuse worn out or old socks. Make sure to wash them thoroughly before you put them to use!
