Uses for Pillowcases

Where I have to store my crockpots and cookers is dusty. I have found that if I use old pillowcases and twist the end over, it prevents from having to major clean before using the appliance. I still rinse off the lid and clean out inside but it saves considerable cleaning time. And if someone needs to borrow it and is standing right there when you get it out, it is not covered in groddy junk.

You could go a step further and do some kind of tie with a tag stating what it is. Hope this is as helpful to someone as it has been to me. I look for shabby chic type cases at garage sales, thrift stores, etc., or make the covers from old sheets, material, tote bags etc.

As I was organizing my garage last night I saw that my folding chairs were dusty. I had also just put some old pillow cases in a pile for donation. Then it struck me to put the pillow cases over each folded chair. They fit perfectly!

What do you do with pillow cases that are no longer needed for a bed? Turn them into cloth bags! First turn the bag inside out, fold down the sides of the opening, run a cord or other material cut to the length of the handle you want, hand stitch/sew.

My daughter recently had a 4th birthday party. We invited 3 of her friends and painted handprint flowers on pillowcases. We painted as soon as they arrived and by the time the party was over, the paint was dry!

Use old pillowcases to store handbags and purses in your closet. This keeps the dust off.

I usually use 2 pillow cases for our bed. Recently one wore out. What to do with the other? I came up with the idea of putting it on the back of my extra dining room chairs that are put away in storage.

I use pillow shams and pillowcases as dust covers for my nice leather purses stored in my closets. Also, I have stored Christmas sweaters and socks in them.

I had a lot of faded pillowcases which I didn't want to use for the beds, but were still in good shape.
