There are a lot of things that you can do to recycle your female clothing. One way that you can do this is to make sure to dispose of them properly because if you don’t, they could end up in the ocean. Another way that you can do this is by donating your clothing to those in need. While you may not see this as a viable option, there are companies out there that will donate your unused female fabrics to good women’s charities. Let's take a look at five creative ways that you can recycle your female clothing and repurpose them.

Cotton Sheets

Many women have cotton sheets for their duvets. Cotton sheets are lightweight, stretchy and do not stink. Cotton sheets have an L-R-XL filter that means they remove 99% of harmful particles and keep you fresh all day. You can also adjust the wash hold time to best suit your needs. These equals dried clean sheets without the sag and stains that come with old cotton sheets. Bonus: Can be machine washed without adding extra chemicals.

Cotton Cloth Stamps

Lately, there has been a huge increase in the adoption of reusable bags. Cotton cloth stamp is similar to the cotton sheet, but is made from 100% recycled cotton cloth. This is suitable for threading onto purses, handbags, baby bags and more. The stamps are inexpensive, reusable and machine washable.

Cotton Cash Bag Wrap

You may have some cash that you have been washing and carrying around. Cotton cash bag wrap is made from old, which are made from 100% recycled cloth. You can find this in many stores for less than $10. Cotton wrap is great for the wallet and some clothing, creating a barrier between your skin and the environment.

Cotton Bottoms

Bottoms made from scrap cotton cloth are inexpensive and come in many different types. You can use them to make children’s dresses, joggers or shorts.



The first way is to use your used female cloth as a dust rag.

If you are like us and have a few babies running around, there’s a good chance that you have a few old baby clothes lying around.

You can actually turn those old clothes into dust rags. The best part is, you can wash them in the washing machine and then reuse them again.

Another way to use old cloth is making towels. If you have sheets, you might want to try a few of your old fluffy sheets to make cute baby shower towels.

You can also use them to make a cute baby blanket. Get creative and tie together some of your old cloth and roll it into a nice cuddly blanket. Keep in mind that it won’t be as soft as a real blanket. You might need to leave a little extra fabric at the ends to make it extra cuddly.

You can also use them in the kitchen by turning them into reusable dishcloths.

How to Use It

Take old, unused female cotton batting and turn them into a quilt.

The batting can be a bit chunky, so start by working in large circles on one side of the batting to make it fluffy. Then, work on the other side. Don’t move out of the way and make sure to always center the quilt on the following row. Pinch each end to make sure it stays in place.

Pro-tip: When sewing, always use a straight stitch to keep seams as neat as possible. Do not frill the edges; this can cause problems with drips and glitch. Shape the batting whichever way you think it will look best, from a pile to the traditional French seams.

Turn your old female cloth into an apron for cooking or cleaning around the house.


There are a lot of female clothing items that you can turn into aprons if you’re looking for a stylish way to stay clean while cooking or cleaning around the house. The best thing about these aprons is that you can make them in any size that you want, which means it’ll be easy to customize the design to your needs.

These cup sleeves can be replaced with cloth and are perfect to keep your hands warm while cooking. Simply make a pouch with the sleeves as the lining. It would make a great picnic gift for a friend or loved one.

If you're dealing with seasonal clothing, you may want to consider recycling your sweaters. Cotton is a renewable resource that can last for decades even when not cared for. You can turn this plain cotton batch-drawer set into a beautiful French heeled cream-colored sleep set by sewing the arms together and pressing together.

Your swim trunks can become colorful carpet for children. Simply get a ball and a piece of ribbon and make your own colored. In the center of the creek you can hang a rainbow flag and water markers, place string or a small colored block, and let the kids create their very own rainbow village. This is a simple, inexpensive way to add holiday charm to your swim bags.
