Don’t throw away your lone socks from the laundry – they’re a savior for cleaning

TOSSING away old clothing is always a little difficult to do.

It feels like a waste to let your t-shirts and socks go just because they don’t suit you anymore.

A cleaning expert named Caroline Solomon, who goes by @neat.caroline on TikTok, said you can upcycle your old things and use them for organization purposes instead.


We’ve all dealt with the annoyance of being left with a pile of single socks after a laundry load.

Caroline said these can actually come in handy: “Use a lone sock as a duster.”

She slipped her hand into the sock and swiped above her picture frame.


Next, Caroline said to save those empty, used-up spray bottles to store your DIY cleaners.

All you need to do is combine water with some dish soap and you have a great all-purpose cleaner.

Caroline said to use these as desk drawer organizers.

You can store paperclips in one, receipts in another, and sticky notes in a third.  


As for all those old toothbrushes from guests past that you have lying around, save those too.

“Use an old or extra toothbrush as a cleaning brush.

“To disinfect it before use, grab some hydrogen peroxide, let it soak for a few minutes, then soak it under water.”


Her next tip addressed the stack of worn out, old t-shirts you have.

Instead of throwing these out, turn them into cleaning rags.

No need to buy small towels when you have a handful of these!
