  • Three children, two decades and one thousand arguments later he's still wearing that awful shirt. Check out these eight indispensable hacks that'll help you put that rag to good use. If he gets angry, you can blame me.

  • 1. Cloth diaper

  • You spend hundreds of dollars a year on disposables. It's about time you had a couple reusable cloth diapers. You'll save money, the environment and years of future public embarrassment!

  • 2. Disposal tester

  • Not sure if your disposal is working? Turn it on while slowly lowering his shirt into the abyss. If it ends up looking like your first attempt at a knitting project, it's working just fine. It's a good thing you tested it out.

  • 3. Fire-starter

  • Is it getting chilly in your house? Use his shirt as tinder to get a blazing fire going. The thin cotton fibers are the perfect way to hold a flame. If your house is already plenty warm ... crank up dat A/C.

  • 4. Handkerchief

  • Common tissues are abrasive and irritating to the sensitive skin around the nose. Use his old shirt to treat your nose a little better while going green at the same time.

  • 5. Oil checker

  • Your husband loves cars. Learn a bit more about his favorite hobby and practice checking the oil. It doesn't matter that he got a refill last week. He'll be thrilled you find it interesting.

  • 6. Knife tester

  • If your knives effortlessly glide through the length of his shirt, they're sharp enough. If they tend to catch on the collar or sleeves, keep sharpening and try again ... and again ... and again.

  • 7. Dog toy

  • Use his old shirt to make one of those creepy dolls your dog loves to tear to shreds. If necessary, hide bacon within the doll just to make sure your dog finds the proper motivation.

  • 8. Plunger checker

  • You just bought a new plunger, but is it fully functional? Flushing his shirt down the toilet will clog your loo right up. Grab your plunger and go to work. If you successfully force it down and away, you've invested in a quality plunger. Pat yourself on the back and practice your best sorry-Hun-I-haven't-seen-it-anywhere face.

  • Share these hacks with your friends so they can quickly repurpose their husbands' clothes as well. It's time.
