Red face Re-Purposing Swim Noodles...

Long car trips can cause my heel to hurt at the car's floor.

Using a sharp knife, I split a swim noodle in half. Both halves were glued to the floormat, which raised my foot enough to totally avoid that pain.

Using "Liquid Nails" as an adhesive has shown endurance for the past six months, although contact cement may be optimal.



This may help in "Getting Here".

As I gather still more photographs, I hope to add a few more uses for swim noodles. Swim Noodles which, after tennis balls, are the most-likely flotsam to wash up on shore. So re-purpose these for free!

As an added bonus, should you ever drive off a pier and land in lake Winni, you can just grab your floor mat and swim to safety.

My fave is #16 ..... holds plant life upward .... is so useful!

As you probably heard, two years ago I constructed a new second floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom on my cottage, done entirely with high density, high strength, foam swim noodles purchased at the November, Gilford-Walmart noodle markdown ..... highest noodle quality, lowest noodle price in blue, red, and green!

This is the first I am hearing about using noodles for plumbing.... KUDOS.

Now where did I put that funnel?
