Yesterday I had a little time on my hands and decided to go through some old clothes. I took some to a consignment shop to sell and made $68. I sold them at a place called Plato's Closet. I don't know if they're nationwide or not, but they pay a pretty good amount for clothes.
Next, I separated some into a pile to give to Goodwill. Then I had some shirts that were really stained, ripped, etc. I didn't really want to give those to Goodwill because they were incredible hideous and I don't think they would even keep them. But, I didn't want to throw them away either. So, being my cheap self I decided to make little rags with them. I have been trying to reduce the amount of paper towel I use, but I don't like to dirty my nice dish clothes. Cutting up these yucky clothes were a good solution.
I made three sizes. Big ones for the hubby when he washes the car, does yard work, etc. Middle size ones for larger clean ups and little ones for wiping the counter and other kitchen things. Now, I know you are wondering to yourself if I use them in the bathroom too. Ummm...maybe for the occasional light counter cleaning, but this girl will NOT be using these on the toilet. I'm simply not green enough for all that. The idea of washing anything with toilet rags makes me a little icky. And I don't think it's worth wasting a load of laundry to wash them alone. I'd might as well use paper towel with all the water I'd be wasting.
So here they are:
Have a great day!!
