I loved this comment left by Angelsanlee:
I spent alot of time trying to figure out how to use all the stuff our husbands do not need anymore because of the uniform change.
Black shoe polish- makes a great eye liner/mascara..the kids love painting with it too.
20 cans of starch- hairspray and bug killer
ugly black socks- great for cleaning-use them like a cleaning mitt
old grey P.T.'s- NEVER THROW THOSE AWAY!!! They are the most comfortable things in the world to wear. I do not even care that mine have holes in the arm pitt's. They breathe better that way.
ear plug case- Wonderful way to send your kids to school with lunch money....civilian kids DO NOT KNOW HOW TO OPEN THEM!!
brownmilitary undies- yeah....just throw those away, unless you need a pigtail template for your daughter's hair-do
Hercomment reminded me of this post. Military spouses are a creative bunch. If you've foundsome interesting ways to re-purpose military gear and clothing, please share them with us.
