Multipurpose Creative Reuse

Few things could be used otherwise than their normal usage. Leverage, optimize and reuse is the mantra. Some really creative usage of the ordinary for the extra ordinary :-D


Here they are

- Broom to spread oil on a large scale while preparing dosas :-)

- Banana doubled up as offering to deity and as a placeholder for incense sticks

- Footwear to beat up eve teasers.

- Charcoal doubling up as dish washing agent and as tooth powder

- Hockey sticks/cricket bats to bash up rogues.

- Horse shoe nailed to the main entrance of a house for luck and prosperity.

- Rice powder to draw rangolis/kolams.

- Sieve to look at the moon during Karwa Chauth

-  Soda bottles to knock off someone on the head.

- Saliva expelled in anger to INSULT somebody.

- Sacred ash or Vibuthi to adorn one's forehead as tilak doubles up as a cleaning agent for glass

- Paan stains to paint the town red.

These were all I could think of as of now. New creative ideas welcome :-) Shoot!!
