This "incident" has inspired me to go through the Rolodex that is in my head and review some of the products that I have been forced to use in unconventional ways. For example, you may remember this photo from an installment of His & Her Dinner I wrote back in August.
My husband using a hair dryer to defrost his dinner rolls because we don't own a microwave.
He also uses the hair dryer to trigger the A/C to come on because it's set and locked and we can't change it.
I also admit to using an adult diaper to clean up a water spill at school because I couldn't get a hold of the maintenance department, a towel, a mop, or paper towels.
I once saw someone use a tampon to stop a nose bleed.
I've used my shoes as fly swatters.
I've attempted (attempted being the operative word here) to use tin foil in place of a cookie sheet to bake on.
The obvious clear nail polish to stop a run in nylons.
A bathing suit that also serves as underwear when you run out of clean ones.
Baby butt wipes as nose plugs when you're in a smelly situation (like today)
The coffee maker as a heat tool to set embossing powder.
So, what conventional products have you used in unconventional ways?
