- Bailing twine is great for cleaning buckets. Wad it up and use it for a scrubber to clean your water buckets. Gail

lead ropes from hay strings
- I 4-strand round braid several strands of hay string to make lead ropes and gate ties. They last for years, and the multi-strand ropes soon get as smooth as any other rope. The more you use it the better (and softer) it becomes.

- baler twine is great for tying gates shut. When it wears out, guess you could probably find a new one somewhere handy!

- Wrap piece of binder twine around a 4" x 4" post for a cat scratching post.
Uses for Twine
- I actually use it braided together and put a rope across our barn entrances. I won't care if they break from a run away horse or get all gross cause I can make another one. It does slow the running horses if made properly. Has stopped a couple from going through since it looks solid. Doesn't stop them all though.

- We have a rope maker, (yes, the old fashioned kind) and I use baler twine to twist(no braiding) into lead ropes. Works well, and though the ropes are scratchy, they are my favorites.
- I think it's really useful for use as a temporary filet string if an old one breaks.
