What can you do with pantyhose that have a run or two but are otherwise intact? Frugality-centered blog Wise Bread created a list of ways you can reuse pantyhose.

Stretching a piece of pantyhose over the lens of your camera diffuses the light and can create a star-burst effect—think "Guiding Light" soap opera lighting. Not a photographer? You can stuff those annoying little slivers of leftover bar soap into a knotted section of pantyhose to create a soap-satchel you can hang from the faucet for quick hand scrubs in the workshop or laundry room. Fill a leg with onions, knotted between each onion, and you've got an easy way to hang them in your pantry to keep them cool and dry.

For over a dozen other reuse tricks, check out the full list at Wise Bread. Have a tip or trick of your own for recycling pantyhose or other disposables? Let's hear about it in the comments.
