Recycle question

I'm sure you are gonna think I am nuts BUT I was folding my towels and some of the ends are fraying. Otherwise they are in great condition. They have the most adorable ducks on them and I hate to see them get wasted. Is there anything I can do with them? Can I make a cover out of them? A soaker? Is this possible or am I just plain nuts

Re: Recycle question

Nope you're not nuts at all... off the top of my head I'd say you could try to use it for... soaker... or even a layer in making a dipe or PF

I had a wahm make me some diapers from towels once, and they were my favorites. She used hemp in the soakers and two layers of towel for the body.

Re: Recycle question

You're not nuts at all, you're very clever! I have some of our not-so-pretty old dishtowels that I fold up and use as doublers. They work great! Go for it!
