Nail files are a cheap everyday item that are easily found in the shops. We don’t necessarily use them every day, but we always have one lying around within arm’s reach, just in case we need it -in case of nail emergencies! These simple little items can however become far more useful than you ever suspected! Here are 10 surprising ways of using them for everything and anything -except you nails!
1) A letter opener
2) The tip of a metal nail file can work as a makeshift screwdriver for small screws
3) You can use it to sharpen objects: a tweezers, a cutters, a pin or even a knife
4) Remove dirt from a rubber eraser
5) Some seeds can become covered in a fine grainy substance over time. To help the seeds to grow faster and to better absorb water, scrub them gently with a nail file before planting.
