Several of our collected products are called upon to do double duty. Here are some you may not have considered as having alternate uses. The Galvanized Feed Scoop when stood on end makes a great kitchen caddy for long handled tools. 4-Way Rubber Bands circumvent the need for ribbon on gifts. The Can Opener works particularly well opening sealed plastic packaging. Use the Nail Brush to clean the grout in hard to reach corners.
