Got an old comforter or blanket that needs a second life, consider these top 5 ways to reuse an old comforter:
1- Duvet Cover – Instead of replacing the entire comforter, stitch shut any holes and slide it into a new duvet cover for a fresh look.
2- Donate – Local homeless, battered women’s, or animal shelter are always in need of good blankets.
3- Keep in Car – For an impromptu picnic or for the kids to snuggle under during a late night car ride.
4- Reuse Stuffing – Most comforters are filled with polyester fiber which is also good for stuffing animals, pillows, & other craft pojects as it is non-flammable.
5- Garden Helper – Use an organic or vintage cotton comforter in the garden as a weed barrier instead of plastic sheeting. Lay the blanket down and cover with six to twelve inches of top soil.
