♻️ Things you can totally reuse in everyday life that you might have never thought about before. A thread:
Cooking Water 💦

After boiling eggs or steaming veggies, leave the leftover water in the pot to cool. When the water reaches room temperature, pour it in your plant pots or garden beds to keep your plants hydrated while saving on your water bill.
Dryer Sheets 🧦

They leave your laundry fluffy and soft, but don't discard them when your dryer cycle comes to a halt. Use your spent dryer sheets as dust cloths! The slightly abrasive texture grabs grime while the chemically treated surface helps keep dust from settling in.
Mesh Produce Bags 🍊

The same mesh bags that hold tangerines and onions at the grocery store can also be used to clean pots and pans! Ball up an empty mesh bag, secure it with a rubber band, squirt some dish soap on your homemade scrubber, then go to town on your dirty dishes.
Old Towels 🧺

Instead of tossing old towels, cut them into strips and braid them into a funky mat, or cut them into small rounds and sew flannel backings on them to make reusable makeup remover pads.
Lemon Peels 🍋

Rub a lemon half on a rusty metal surface, along with a sprinkle of coarse salt, to remove corrosion! Or drop several lemon peels in a jar and cover with white vinegar and a lid to make your own grease-cutting cleaner for windows, countertops, and other surfaces.
