Need to keep your beloved houseplant alive while you're on vacation? Repot the plant with a disposable diaper at the bottom of the flowerpot before covering with soil; the diaper will help retain soil moisture at the bottom, which will keep your plant properly hydrated for a good window of time while you're gone.
Other than its obvious uses, it's a good idea to keep a few disposable diapers around even if you don't have any babies in your household. Diapers work great for wiping up big messes on the floor, temporarily fixing a leak pipe, packing fragile items, making a DIY ice pack, and more.
