Uncommon Uses of Common Things....Disposable Diapers


  By Shabnamahsan


In continuation of my series of uncommon uses of common thing today I am writing few uncommon uses of disposable diapers.

                           If your kids are too big for diapers & you are confused what to do with some unused one, here are some interesting uses.

Diaper cake

Are you going to attend a baby shower? Use your diapers to make a cute diaper cake. Tie around lovely ribbon, attach some small toys & your pretty baby shower gift is ready.

Emergency Kit

Keep in glove compartment in your car for emergencies. It’ll serve as great blood absorber if accident occurs. 

Keeps Flower Fresh Longer

If you have to carry flowers & concerned about spilling during transporting, just wet the inside of a disposable diaper & wrap around the flower. Your flowers will get all the necessary moisture & won't get dry without any mess. When you reach your destination put it in a beautiful vase, off course without diaper. If it's for your loved one, just remember to discard diaper before giving it otherwise......

Convenient Iced or Hot Pack

If you get hurt or having pain anywhere in your body, you can use it as hot or iced pack. For hot pack, wet the inside of the disposable diaper & microwave it on medium heat until it's hot enough for you to bear on your skin.

For cold pack, dribble one cup alcohol in diaper than soak it in water. Now pack it & freeze it. Sodium Polyacrylate in diaper will transfer the liquids in gel & alcohol will keep it from completely freezing. Even if you don't have alcohol use plain water and freeze. Outer cover of the diaper will prevent water from dipping when using on the aching part of your body.

Great Mess Cleaner

If you are traveling & someone vomits or accidentally spills a large volume of liquid, disposable diaper is a rescuer. Clean the mess with it.  It won’t break easily as paper towel or have to wash frequently as cloth during cleaning. It you can't get any proper place to dispose the mess just seal the diaper & carry it with you until you find garbage can.

Temporary Fix for a Leaky Pipe

To avoid the annoying dripping sound & fixing your leaky pipe just wrap a disposable diaper around it. Now call your plumber as it is a successful, but temporary fix.

Avoid Pet Disaster in Travel

Traveling with your pet can be a disaster. Keep disposable diaper at the bottom of your pet carrier to avoid any "accident".

Keeps the Plant Hydrated Longer

Place a disposable diaper (absorbent side up) in the bottom of a planter before adding soil. It will work as water reservoir absorbing the water that would otherwise drain out the bottom. The plant will get hydrated longer & you have to water it less often.

Protective Wrapping Material

If you have to ship any fragile material in emergency & you don't have time to go to the market & bring protective wrapping, don't worry. Wrap around the disposable diaper & seal in a box. Rest assure your delicate object will arrive safely in one piece.
