Few things excite me the way re-purposing old things does. Like when I showed you how to use your grater to store your earings, remember?


Well here are 6 ways to reuse your old newspapers

1.  Ripen tomatoes. if you wrap unripe tomatoes in a newspaper and leave it out of the fridge for say a day or 2. It will ripen.

2. Wipe away tough streaks on glass. cramble some newpaper, spray some cleaning fluid and shine your windows or glass tables. you can also use some steam on a drinking glass then shine off with newspaper

3.Keep the refrigerator vegetable drawer dry and free of smells. Line the bottom with newspaper.

4.Deodorize food containers. Stuff a balled-up piece of newspaper into a lunch box or thermos, seal it, and let sit overnight.

5. Pack delicate items.Wrap frames, plates, glasses etc with newspaper before packing and fill empty spaces with more newspaper

6. Dry shoes. Place crumpled paper in them overnight.
