Repurposing Onesies and Burp Cloths

Lil' peanuts sure do grow up fast, huh?

Seems like, by the time the first birthday candles are blown out, there are BINS of outgrown clothing, burp cloths and blankies taking up space everywhere. 

We hand down and donate tons of used baby gear, but I've found a wonderful way to repurpose oldies but goodies!

Grab those outgrown onesies, use scissors to remove the snaps and then open by cutting up the side.  
Create perfectly sized, super soft dust rags...
and hold on to the memories of those newborn days just a teensy bit longer.

Don't dump those ultra-soft burp cloths either!
Old burp cloths are ideal for household cleanup!
Slice 'em up and reuse as dust cloths, eye compresses or under counter rags for cleaning up spills in the kitchen or bathroom. 

It's the 21st century. Let's cut back on the paper towels and napkins and try to be resourceful. 
Old baby cottons are perfect for around-the-house use. 
Old socks turned into LEG WARMERS!
Same-sies with old socks. Catch up on my previous post about repurposing them for cleaning or to make a groovy fashion statement here

Reduce, reuse, recycle, sweet friends!
