Creative ways to convert an old towel

Just because that towel is old and has some tears, doesn't necessarily mean you have to toss it out. Convert it into something new instead.

Something old made into something new

Just because that old towel is looking pretty worn, doesn’t mean it still can’t serve a great purpose. Make room in your linen cupboard for newer towels and transform your old towels into something that you can use elsewhere in your home.


You can cut up the old towel into smaller sections to make washcloths. Just hem the edges and you have a whole new set of washcloths.

Washing the car or your pet

Use the old towels for washing your car, or giving your precious pet a bath. It doesn’t matter if the towel has a few tears or holes, they still can get the job done.

Make an after shower wrap

You can also pick up a few Velcro strips at the store and turn your old towel into a bath wrap. Just stick the Velcro strip to the edge of the towel and you have a perfect cover-up for when you step out of the shower.

Thanks for reading ♥♥

You can also donate old towels to your local animal shelter and they will use them in cages of their cats and dogs. They often need old bed spreads too.
