Janet has asked us a question on the Suggest an Item page: I have several combs that I don’t use. Can they be re-used or recycled? Any unrequired combs found in our house are cleaned then used for cat/dog brushing – they seem to prefer combs to brushes, and their combs go missing with startling regularity (if they were smarter animals, I’d suspect they were hiding them on purpose). Handle-less combs, the type used for holding hair in place rather than untangling it, can used as the base of a fascinator or decorate it with old jewellery or fabric scraps on a smaller scale for use as a day-to-day hair accessory. As for actually recycling it, it’ll depend on the material they’re made from. From what I’ve been able to find online, a lot of (modern) plastic combs seem to be made from injection moulded polypropylene (plastic number 5), which can be recycled – but not everywhere collects it and even the places that do often only take it in certain common forms. Most every-day metal ones are steel. Any other reusing ideas? Or recycling advice?

I can’t believe we’ve not featured this already. We’ve covered stale bread , bread bag tags , how to make a bread bin recycling old stuff , and what to do with an old bread machine pan but not the bags that pre-sliced loaves come in.
