Recycling and Keeping Fabric Clean

Fabric stays clean and is easily seen.

This is a great way to recycle those zippered plastic bags that sheets and blankets come in. I’ve always saved them thinking I’d find a use someday. Keeping fabric in these allows the fabric to be protected from dust and moisture. Plus the fabric is easily seen and can be stacked on a shelf. I’ve even put notes inside to remind me of something I don’t want to forget about the particular fabric.

So don’t throw those zippered bags away. It’s a small way of “greening” fabric storage.

    I've also used the smaller version from pillowcases to hold knitting projects when I travel. They work great since you can see what's inside.

    Great ideas! I use them to store white linens also my shawls. To keep my shawls smelling good I put a pouch of drawer fragrance sachet.
