ANOTHER USE FOR... has a 10 page index making it easier to find the solutions to household problems. Common household items are listed alphabetically, followed by five to ten additional and often surprising uses for that item. Beginning with ALCOHOL (to remove grass stains from clothing), ALUMINUM FOIL (to wrap doorknobs before painting to avoid drips), to WAX PAPER (to rub across closet rods for easy-sliding hangers.) You will be amazed at the ingenious ways you can use the ordinary things you have at home.
Whimsical line drawings add a touch of humor to this clever compendium of handy suggestions for recycling, reusing or repositioning common items. Frugality is the watchword. This book should help throwaway habits and strike back at planned obsolescense.
