3 Things You Can Do With Plastic Tablecloths

Don't just cover the table -- try using plastic tablecloths for these tasks, too.

from Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things

Make a shower curtain
A colorful tablecloth can make a great-looking shower curtain to match your bathroom decor. Punch holes about 6 inches (15 centimeters) apart and 1/2 inch (1.25 centimeters) from one edge of a hemmed tablecloth. Insert shower curtain rings or loop strings through the holes and loosely tie to the curtain rod.

Make a high-chair drop cloth
Bombs away! It’s par for the course for a baby to get more food on the floor than in his or her mouth. Catch the debris and protect your floor by spreading a plastic tablecloth under the high chair.

Collect leaves
Save all that bending at leaf-raking time. Don’t pick the leaves up to put them in a wheelbarrow to transport them to the curb or leaf pile. Just rake the leaves onto an old plastic tablecloth, gather up the four corners, and drag the tablecloth to the curb or pile.
