recycled towels

I've been really involved lately. Go here to my other blog to see ...
Now for todays post ...
Do you have tired towels, a little tattered and torn but still thirsty? Well here's a little idea I've done for quite some time. You recycle them into kitchen dishcloths. Here are the extremely simple steps.
1. Cut them up into squares avoiding any holes or really thin spots. Mine are 13" this time. There are 6 of them.

2. Edge them. I used a serger, but a zigzag stitch would work just fine since they are just recycled, not fancy.
3. That's it. Your done and you have some heavy duty dishcloths that will last for a long time.


They make great dishcloths ... thick, recycled, repurposed, no cost ... lots of good reasons to do this.
