How To: 15 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Throw Out Your Old Socks

15 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Throw Out Your Old Socks

Need to give yourself a super-cheap back massage? Place a few tennis balls inside a long sock, tie the end, and place the sock on the floor. Then, lie down and roll your back against the sock to relieve your sore back muscles.

In addition to saving yourself a trip to a massage therapist, old socks are weirdly useful for a number of other things, from protecting small and breakable objects during a big move to providing endless amusement for your beloved cat or dog.
