Do you have a bunch of old clothes that are too worn-out for donating and beyond salvaging by upcycling? Instead of taking them to a recycling bank straight away, tear into strips and use as cleaning cloths first! It's cheaper than buying wet wipes and has the added bonus of reducing your waste and plastic-use footprint! You can recycle rags at most textile banks, so when your cleaning cloths have served their purpose, you can take them to a textiles recycling bank near you so that they can be turned into industrial blankets or padding.
