Amazing Ways of Repurposing Your Clothes
Every year, there are millions of tons of clothing that are being thrown away, according to research. The funny thing is that all these clothes are in good condition. They are just out of style and others do not fit anymore. People just fail to see the use these clothes can be to them, and also save them money and resources. Another benefit is that the environment remains clean. Upcycling is a very viable solution.
Why not use those old clothes to make rags. Your home will always need cleaning and you can use the rags you create from your old clothes. These rags can be more helpful in dusting surfaces, removing cobwebs, cleaning shoes, windows, etc. You can make it even more interesting by making a rag with multiple textures from different fabrics.
Pets, especially cats and dogs like to play with toys. As long as the pet is happily enjoying playing with the toy, it does not matter how much the toy costs. Thus, making toys for your pet can be another purpose you can use your old clothes for. These toys can have a very long lifespan if made well. You get to make your favorite pet happy without using a single cent.
By now you know that fashion can change without warning and you might find the next upcoming one crazier than its predecessor. Those clothes you are throwing away can be used to make new ones. A case in point is designing caps, shirts or t-shirts from your old jeans. You can get a button-down skirt from that long shirt you want to throw away. Another idea is to carefully shred your jeans in specific places to make a new ‘bomb’ outfit.
You can use the clothes, just like making toys for the pets, to make clothes for your daughter’s dolls. Dress your daughter’s dolls without visiting the stores using those clothes you wanted to throw away so bad and put a smile on her face. All this is free.
