recycled t-shirt rags

ever wonder what to do with your husband's old, yellowed undershirts? well i use them as cleaning cloths! with 5 easy cuts you can make 4 good sized cleaning cloths.

first lay your shirt flat on a cutting mat.

using a rotary blade cutter cut just inside the seams for the sleeves to remove the sleeves.
do this to both sleeves.

next, cut a straight line across the shirt, just under where the sleeves where to make a rectangle. discard the sleeves and top of the shirt that you have removed.

lastely cut in half both vertically and horizontally. now you have 4 good cloths for cleaning, kids napkins, or whatever you might need extra towels for but don't want to use your good ones!
