Repurposing Old Towels

We have two kids, so it isn’t surprising that our bathroom hand towels are stained and dingy after much use.  I decided to replace them with new darker-colored hand towels this weekend.  Instead of throwing away the old towels, I repurposed them into cleaning rags.  Honestly, I’m not sure what happened to all of my cleaning rags (repurposed old washcloths) over the years.  Now, with the help of my handy rotary cutter, I have a stack of “new” cleaning rags.  For the past few years, I have also made our handkerchiefs by cutting up my husband’s worn out white undershirts.  Old T-shirts make great hankies, because they are already worn and soft.
