New Uses for Things in the Bathroom

Fresh new spins on bathroom essentials.

Baby wipe container as yarn holderBaby Wipe Container as Yarn Holder - Don’t let your yarn get crossed. Use an empty baby wipes container to keep yarn clean and tangle-free.
Metal magazine rack as towel holderMetal Magazine Rack as Towel Holder - Roll pool towels and store them vertically, so your kids can grab one before taking a swim.
Needles and pins in a wrapped bar of soap

Bar of Soap as Pretty Pincushion - 

Stick needles and pins in a wrapped bar of soap. The soap’s oils make the pointy ends glide through fabric sew easily.

Baby oil, a cloth and faucetBaby Oil as Chrome Polish - Forget keeping skin soft, baby oil also polishes chrome. Apply a dab to a cotton cloth and use it to shine everything from faucets to hubcaps. You'll end up with shiny, happy surfaces from a medicine-cabinet staple. (Who actually owns chrome cleaner, anyway?)

Hair Clip as Towel Securer - 
Maintain some modesty in the locker room. Hold towel in place with a clawlike clip post-shower.

Rubbing alcohol used to remove permanent marker
Rubbing Alcohol as Permanent Marker Remover - 
Remove permanent marker from countertops and walls. Pour a bit of alcohol onto a cotton ball and rub on the stain. (Spot test on a hidden area first.)
Shower curtain rings used to store scarves

Shower Curtain Rings as Scarf Storage - 

Sort and hang scarves by threading them through rings hung on a closet rod.

Comb used to hold nails

Comb as Nail Holder - 

Protect your fingers while hanging a picture, by holding the nail in the tines of the comb.

Magnet as Tweezer Holder - 
Stop tweezers from going astray by installing a magnet on the inside of the medicine cabinet and they will always be at your fingertips.

Toilet Paper Roll as Cord Holder - 

Contain extra extension cords by wrapping the length of one around your hand then sliding the whole thing inside the tube.
Found all these GREAT! ideas on Real Simple
