Top 10 ways to recycle your old bedding

Published: 16 January 2019 | Category : Home Living Tips & Advice | Author: Michael Shaw

Don’t know what to do with your old sheets? Get creative with some of these excellent ways to recycle your bed linen

1. Reusable shopping bag

This may need a bit of sewing know-how, but creating a reusable shopping bag out of old sheets can be great way to help the environment! Cotton is strong enough to hold your groceries — just make sure you reinforce those stitches!

2. Padded coat hangers

Why not give some of the old metal coat hangers that collect in the wardrobe a new lease of life by padding them out with some old bedsheets? Cut your sheets into strips, carefully wrap them around the hanger, and marvel at your new-look wardrobe.

3. Cinema screen

If you’ve got a projector, an old white bedsheet can transform a living room into your own private cinema. Simply attach it to the wall, get your projector set up and choose your favourite film — just don’t forget the popcorn.

4. Braided dog toy

Give your pooch their favourite new plaything by transforming your old sheets into a braided chew toy. Simply cut your sheets into strips and braid them together, making sure you knot it tightly. Surprisingly easy to make, and your dog will love you for it.

5. Placemats

Liven up your table top by tastefully wrapping placemats in your old sheets and adding a touch of comfort to your dining table. A pattern sheet can create the perfect outdoor tablemats, while white sheets work well for elegant interiors.

6. Hammock

If you want to while away those summer afternoons with a good book, why not create your own hammock by using old bedsheets? Tie them up between two trees not too far apart and you could be ready to relax this summer. 

7. Sleeping bag liner

Either as an inner, or a sleeping bag in its own right for warmer nights, a sleeping bag liner is surprisingly easy to make. Simply fold a sheet in half, sew the ends together, and enjoy a more comfortable sleep on your next camping trip. 

8. Cleaning rags

It might not seem the most rock’n’roll offering on this list, but everyone needs cleaning rags, and old bedsheets make great ones. Cut your sheets up into smaller pieces and use them when you’re next doing a big spring clean.

9. Plant cover

If you’re green fingered, you’ll know just how difficult it is to keep plants alive when there’s a cold snap of weather. To help you out, use old sheets to cover them up by creating your very own environmentally-friendly poly tunnel.

10. Ironing board cover

Jazz up your ironing board by fashioning a new cover out of your old bedsheets. Use the least-worn parts of your sheets and you’ll be able to get a good few years of ironing out of your new-look board.
