Fan belt – ok it does not work on all cars and is not highly recommended but I have seen it done in Africa (by the way the car did catch fire!)

Blister stopper – Cut the feet off of a pair of pantyhose at the ankles and wear them under your socks. They’ll help cut down on the friction between your shoe and your foot, thus reducing the risk of blisters.

Clothes line – Tie each toe of your pantyhose to something in your hotel room and use them as a clothes line.

Camera lens filter – Stretch pantyhose over the end of your camera lens to create a blurred, “dreamy” effect.

Washing – use a soap filled stocking as a gentle scrubber for your skin or to wash your pots and pans when camping

Sieve – ever broken a bottle while trying to open it and scared you may drink glass – just place stocking over another container and pour in liquid to sieve out the bits of glass. Likewise it can be great for sieving pasta, rice and so forth

Hold up baggy trousers – Replace the drawstrings in your favourite travel trousers or as a belt to hold them up (especially if travelling to place you are likely to lose weight…you know what I mean)

Clean sunglasses – Pantyhose are lint free and have enough of an abrasive surface to clean without scratching

Tie things – as a tourniquet or headband…the uses are endless!

Fishing net – ok you need then to have something like an old tennis racquet (it may not very likely you will be travelling with this but you never know) or perhaps a piece of wood with a coat hanger (you get the picture…)

Ah we did forget one!  You may want to actually wear them out or to keep warm.

Please let me know if you have any other great innovative ways to use pantyhose whilst travelling!
