Packing Peanuts

Packing peanuts can be a challenge to handle, as they seem to stick to anything they get close to or touch. Below are some great ways to put them to use:

Sprinkle them in the bottom of pots to provide drainage for your houseplants

Stuff them into an old zippered pillow cover to create a soft bed for your dog or cat.

Put a handful into a potpouri jar and spritz with your favorite perfume to deodorize a room.

Pour them into plastic newspaper wrappers and tie the ends. When you're traveling use these bags to cushion the breakables in your suitcase.
