This is my strangest post yet! haha I cleaned out my closet for the new year and have a bunch of old undies & socks that the local thrift stores probably won't take. I can't bring myself to throw them away, but don't know what to do with them! Any advice?
I do hope someone comes up with some ideas. I've always wondered this myself. I'm not much of a seamstress either.
For those of you who seamstresses, maybe you could make a blanket out of the old underwear (which is funny and kinda gross as you've all pointed out! hehe) but donate it to an animal shelther. I hear that shelters are always looking for towels and blankets. I really don't think many dogs would mind curling up to what once used to be someone's underwear.
What about using them as rags? I cut up my husbands old undershirts for rags and they are really nice and soft. You could just cut out the crotch (sorry, lack of a better word) of the undies to make two rags. Socks are great for dusting. Just put it on your hand like a puppet!
We gave a huge pile of old, stained or worn towels - both kitchen and bath size - to the local animal shelter. They always need towels. I've been wondering what to do with all our old socks, too. Hopefully, someone will come in with a brilliant and doable idea...cause I'm totally unable to come up with anything.
