    certain clothes that are worn out can be ripped in strips and used as tomato plant ties. You can use old sweaters to make a dog bed out of it.... check on-line for directions. I use old towels to put on my car seats when my dog rides along with me. Also, some of my old clothes that are not worth donating, gets used as rags. Better to be practical than waste. Oh.... one more thing that I can think of is that I have used some clothes for making doll clothes for my grand daughter. It was not exactly Barbie doll quality, but she loved it and was thankful and happy with what I had given her and it made me happy too.

    I use old clothing as dust cloths, also to wash the car. Cotton undershirts are great,anything that is 100 percent works well

    Also another thing you can use old clothing for in arts and crafts:
    If you knit or crochet, you can create many useful things like shopping bags (also can use plastic bags) if you cut up in rounds to make thin "yarn" string.

    Thanks for this useful article. We had never considered using worn clothing for compost as we have a big container next to our kitchen sink to throw things into every day for our garden (and yes, it makes our garden rich - rabbits show their joy too!). ;)

    Since can't find a way to save this article, will try copy paste when back home to computer. Thanks again.

    When the worn-out tarp from our pool was replaced, we kept it to use for covering our camper during the winter months.
