What To Do With Old, Worn Out Tank Tops

Old Tank Tops Turn Dusters


Every six months I go through my closet to reorganize everything and get rid of clothes I haven't worn in awhile. Most of the time I give away clothes to the Salvation Army or Goodwill, however, there are some clothes that I wouldn't want other people wearing - like my deodorant-stained tank tops.

I was going to throw these tank tops away, but I started thinking about all the millions and millions of clothing pieces already filling up our landfills. I've been to a landfill before and it's not a pretty sight!

Even though these cotton tank tops are probably biodegradable, I think they can have a second life by becoming furniture dusters ;)

Another thing you could do with old clothes is give it to a mixed media artist. Artists know how to use their creativity to re-purpose anything. For instance, I've used old scraps of fabric in my oil paintings to create this mixed media collage painting...
