Re: [at-l] New uses for used stuff?



Okey dokey:  there's the 1 or 2-liter beverage bottle to be reused as a 
beverage bottle cum Duct tape roller.  (Datto, you leave that nice little 
Latin word alone; it's perfectly happy right where it is!).  Then there's 
the nylon mesh vegetable bag (or piece thereof, if big) which makes a 
never-has-t0-be-dried pot scrubber.  Next?  jpj
