There are plenty of other uses for towel besides drying off after a bath. Here’s a short list of ideas:
- If you are moving, use old towels to keep breakable items from moving around inside boxes.
- You can sew several old towels together to make a picnic blanket.
- Sew a ribbon on to the top of the towel to make an apron.
- Make spa like slippers for your feet.
- Cut it down into smaller squares and sew together for an oven mit.
Here are some tips I got from Couponing to Disney readers:
- We use towels for cleaning instead of paper towels. We decided to purchase a 24-pack of white shop towels/hand size towels at a warehouse store 4 years ago. We have them stacked in a kitchen cabinet for easy access in the room we use them the most. We use them to clean counters, clean spills and messes, I use them to clean window sills and floors, and pretty much anything we’d use a paper towel for. We have saved a fortune in paper towels, and feel better that we have eliminated waste and “gone green” in the process. – Heidi
- We have actually donated old towels to the local Humane Society. They were happy to accept them. I also make my own Swiffer pads instead of buying the refills. Two can be pinned or sewn together for the wet vac Swiffer. I also use old towels in the garage for washing cars and cleaning. They old towels are also cut and used as fabric softner sheets in dryer. I love to recycle and save money. – Laurie
