Toilet Paper Tubes

If your family is anything like mine, you have way too many of these to reuse. Remember to recycle!
  • Use for packing material.
  • Stuff an extra set of stockings into a tube and keep in your desk drawer at work, your glove compartment, etc. in case of a run.
  • Ask local schools if they need them for art projects. (Annette)
  • Put in the hamster cage. (Annette)
  • Wrap double-sided tape around the tube, stick one or two fingers in the middle and roll over clothing, furniture, etc. to remove lint. (Julie)
  • Tape one end of yarn/string to the tube. Wrap the string around the tube and then hook the end into a notch cut into the edge of the tube. It makes for easy storage.
  • Use for storing your home-made ribbon from potato chip bags.
  • Let your kids use along with kleenex boxes as building blocks.
  • Stuff a few plastic bags into the tube and then place the tube in the glove compartment of your car. It will keep them tidy and on-hand for when you need them.
  • Use for wrapping party gifts by inserting the gift, pinching and taping the ends closed and then decorating. (Shelley)
  • Use for storing long pieces of ribbon which have been saved from packages. This will keep the ribbon smooth. (Shelley)
  • Slip over small cords to prevent them from tangling. (Russell)
  • Give to pet rodent or bird for play. (Lori)
  • Glue tubes together vertically into a grid larger than your television. Cover the grid with wax paper and place in front of the tv. It gives you a cool, multi-colored light. (Clokey)
  • Use in place of a peat pot. Fill with potting soil, place in a plastic butter/ice cream tub, plant the seed and water. When the plants sprouts, plant the seedling (tube and all) in the ground. The tube rots away. (William)
