Do not throw them out. Recycle your old towels to another purpose!



DIY: Recycle Old Towels – 12 Ideas For You

Towels, sadly, do not last forever. They get stained, torn, or just plain worn out. If you are like me, you really don’t want to throw them away, as mostly they still have some life left in them. But, really, who wants to use a towel with a great big stain on it when they are getting out of a shower?

I have several projects listed here that just might save your old towels, at least for a new purpose. I gathered these projects from around the web, so please be sure to check out the original pages. There are many great do-it-yourself pages for great ideas.
