Make Your Own Dish Rags

Instead of buying kitchen dish rags take old towels and cut them into the size you want to clean your dishes with, then finish the edges on your sewing machine and wallah, you can wash them and reuse them. Make larger ones to keep on hand for spills. It saves you from buying expensive paper towels and keeps our environment safer too!

Even cheaper are flannelette sheets from the charity shop. I just snip and tear them into about 50 cloths per queen sized sheet, (about $4 Australian). I always have a plastic shopping bag full for washing up, dusting, etc. I don't bother hemming them. Lightly soiled ones I rewash but I also use them for floor spills, puppy accidents and paint cloths and just throw away. Much cheaper than paper towels for drips and spills and because they have been washed many times usually they are lint free so even good for glass/mirrors.

Regards

Jo
