Uses for Clothes Pegs

Clamps - When gluing two thin objects together, use a clothes peg to keep them together until the glue is set.

Nail Holder - To protect your fingers when hammering a nail into a wall, hold the nail with a peg.

Clipboard - Make a rack for small tools such as toothbrushes or kitchen utensils. Screw several pegs onto a piece of wood and hand on wall.

Food Fasteners - use pegs to seal the top of open food packages, like biscuits etc to keep fresh.

Spark Plug Reminder - Number and clip pegs to your spark plug cables before disconnecting them. This will make it easier to know which cables go where.

Laundry Help - clip a number of pegs along the bottom of sheets etc hanging on the line to weigh them down and prevent them flapping around.

Hem Pin - when ironing clip pegs along hem to help keep it straight. I do this all the time as I used to find it very difficult to get my hems straight while ironing. This handy tip makes things a whole lot simpler.

Toothpaste Stretcher - use a peg to roll the bottom of the toothpaste tube to ensure that all the toothpaste is squeezed out.
