It’s not unusual for certain household items to overstay their welcome. For example, whose parents didn’t have a set of towels that have been around longer than you have?

If you happen to be one of those people, don’t even think about throwing those towels away! Instead, there’s a much better use for them. The trick is to follow these simple instructions, and then you will be rid of those old, boring rags…

And have a brand-new, stylish, and soft bathmat! Here’s how to pull it off.

Just about everyone owns a set of old towels that have been around since the dawn of time. Instead of throwing them out, however, you could be upcycling them.
