Recycle Thermal Undies Into Cleaning Clothes

Here's a way to reuse and recycle thermal undies and the like. Make them into dishcloths, dish towels and scrub rags. If the thermal clothing you have is something you are no longer going to wear, and it is in clean condition, and 100% cotton, give it another life.


Cut the clothing into the size cloth, towel or rag you like and you are ready to use it! You don't even need to finish the edges (at least the thermal fabric I used didn't have to be finished on the edges.)

Beware if it is a dark fabric, it may bleed, so test first. I find that 100% cotton works best, rather than a mix with polyester.

If you sew at all, they make wonderful "filling" for potholders. (10/26/2006)

They make the absolute best cleaning cloths. For dusting, scrubbing ... all tasks. If you truly mean 'recycle,' you may have a facility in your area which asks for old fabric/clothes (they'll grind them up to make horse blankets, moving blankets and such). (10/26/2006)
