I have come up with an easy way to make an old cardboard box look like new for mailing a package. Cut the tape from all the flaps of the box and cut open one corner. Then turn the box inside out and tape it back together. You have a clean box, with no writing on any of the sides.

I have been doing this for years, and it saves money and saves trees.
