5 Things To Do with Clothespins
Start pinning the old-fashioned way, and learn cool new ways to use clothespins in your home and garden.
1. Keep Fingers Safe
Pinch a match with a spring-type clothespin to light fireplaces and tricky candle votives.
2. Light-proof Your Hotel Room
Clip hotel drapes together to keep out glaring rays (and eyes).
4. Align Your Garden
Wedge a clothespin into the fork (or the spot where a branch and the trunk meet) to keep saplings growing straight and strong.
5. Save Your Page
Clamp a pin onto a page in a book to save your place. If you’re part of a book club, clip together your favorite chapter for an easy way to flip and find.
