Crafty Uses for Old Nail Polish
But recently, my daughter received a box of nail polish as a gift. Supposedly, they are free of the four notorious toxins: Toluene, Formaldehyde, Pthalate, and Camphor. But they smelled nasty. So I read the label and guess what? They still contained a ton of other nasty chemicals. But I felt bad throwing them out so I kept them, hoping I could use them for something.
Here are a couple of ways I decided to use them for crafting…and more.
- Stop the run on stockings
- Stop fraying ends on fabric.
- Dab it on car dings to prevent rusting.
- Put a drop on small cracks on car windshields until you can get it replaced. It’ll stop the crack from spreading.
- Label your keys.
- Label ice cream sticks as plant markers.
- Waterproof shipping addresses on packages.
- Mark knitting needle sizes.
- Emergency glue
- Put a huge “X” in red on anything toxic in your house…if you have still have any left.
And now on to the crafty uses!
