If you're like us you have several around the house. But what do you do with all those old towel?
We've got lots of ideas! So, the other night Mum and I put our noggins together and made a big ole list...a list of the top 21 things a green dog can do with an old towel, clean ones that is.
Are you ready? Here goes!
- Put them on the floor at the back door to soak up the mud and wet
- Tie a knot in both ends and you've got a great tug toy
- Wipe down a wet green dog - after rain, swimming or a bath
- Teach your dog to fold up a towel for a fun trick
- Wrap somewhat snugly around a dog with anxiety or stress, it may calm them a bit
- Cut up an old towel and use as rags with a green cleaner to clean up the yucky spots
- Wipe off those dirty paws before coming into the house
- Cut up in strips lengthwise and braid into a dog tug toy
- Teach your dog to grab a corner and roll up in it like a blanket
- Donate some old towels to your local animal shelter, they could really use them
- Keep some old towels in your car for clean up after trips hiking or to the dog park
- Teach your dog to load a towel into your dryer for drying as a fun trick, then fold them and put away
- Cut up an old towel and secure it to your old mop or Swiffer to get up all the dog hair
- A not so worn or dirty old towel could have a brand new life as a dog coat, all you need is a pattern and sewing ability
- Teach your dog to go mat for a fun trick...but use an old towel instead
- Thicker old towels would make a great material to make a quick and easy dog bootie
- Use old towels to restuff a fallen dog bed, or make a new bed cover from old sheets and stuff away with old towels
- If you're older dog is having trouble walking you can loop a towel under their belly and hold the ends up to help them along
- Put an old towel under your dog's water and food bowl to sop up any mess
- Soak a towel in cool water and wrap around your dog's belly to cool them down on a hot day
- Cut an old towel and sew into a square, add in rice for heating in the microwave and you've got a great heating pad for your pup. You can also make one that will hold ice for an ice pack
