Life After Death For Your Clothes

1 Nov. 2011 Posted by Hannah Mich
worn clothes, cloth rags, uses for old clothes

If you are like me I will wear my clothes until they are faded, worn at the seams and stained. I have phases: clothes to wear out, comfy clothes to wear at home only, clothes for messy jobs like cleaning the house and painting and, the final phase, clothes to rags. I often wear quality clothing for up to 10 years before I must retire them to rags. Once I determine that they are not suitable to be worn at any time, I tear or cut them into pieces. Chores I use these rags for include,

  • Dusting

  • Wiping up spills

  • Painting

  • Staining furniture

  • Wrapping fragile items when packing or moving

  • Cleaning the bathroom tiles

  • Putting knots in the rag & using as a doggy toy

So, don't just throw those old worn clothes out.

They probably have at least another year left of use as rags!
