Old White T-Shirts

There comes a point in the life of a white T-shirt when it is time to hide from the public eye.  The once bright white cotton inevitably turns dingy and thin after much use.  This was the case recently with a handful of Dan’s well-worn shirts.  We usually cut his old T’s into rags, but our rag pile is quite adequately stocked these days.  What to do?  We don’t want to throw them away, but they wouldn’t make good candidates for donating.  My mom, ever the clever one, had the answer.  She said she cut old T-shirts into hankies and noted that the soft fabric is great for a sore nose.  That is such a simple solution, I wondered why I hadn’t thought of it myself.  Now, I can stock our hankie box for cold season and save Dan’s shirts from the trash pile.

  1. I’ve recently seen lots of tutorials about how to make necklaces out of them…the kind that Necklush sells. Just another option! 🙂
