Many of you here are used to the idea that I design and/or build useful devices of a mechanical nature out of **** that I've had lying around the house for 40 years. I do believe, however, that I have now come up with the ultimate (non-mechanical) recycling idea. My house is totally littered with both used toothpicks and cat hair. It occurred to me last night... ...I now make my own Q-tips. Anyone else have such practical uses for stuff that people think is waste?
