There are so many ways you can recycle an old towel, you are only limited by your imagination. Some people like to make mops out of them. All you have to do is take the towel and put it on the floor, then get your broom and place it in the centre of the towel and pull the edges of the towel and tie or fasten them. This makes a really effective mop and the best part is that you can reuse this again and again by popping the towel in the washer.

You can make great oven mitts from old towels. All you have to do is cut them to the required sizes, put a few layers on top of each other so the glove will be thick enough to withstand the heat and sew them up and in no time you will have fantastic oven mitts that you can use again and again and when it is time for cleaning, you just put it in the washer.

If you have a pet such as a rabbit or guinea pig you can make their cages or hutches more comfortable by lining the floor with towels. If you don't have any pets, no problem, take them to your local RSPCA and they will gladly have them.

The above are some ideas on how you can reuse your old bathroom towels instead of just throwing them away or storing them away where they take a lot of space.
