10 Uses For Shower Curtains


Ever wonder what to do with shower curtains you are no longer using?  Here are ten ideas for recycling them!

1.  Paint cloth - they are wonderful for catching those paint spills while you recolor a wall or door.

2.  Car window defroster - cover your vehicle windshield to protect against frost and ice.  Use the magnetic hem to help hold it in place.

3.  Tarp - cover tools, garden equipment, and/or your wood pile!



4.  Raincoat - a crafty seamstress could stitch up a quick slicker for the kiddos, or a cover for the grill.


5. Food catcher for kids - place under table or in the middle of the floor if you are having an indoor picnic, to catch the goop and crumbs that miss those little mouths. 6.  Mulch - Place under gravel or bark chips when you are landscaping to keep the weeks at bay.


6.  Poncho - Yep!  Just fold in half, clip an opening so you can slip it over your head, and presto (!) you have a poncho.  Trim the length if you are height-challenged like I am./div>

7.  Ground cover - Use under a tent or sleeping bag when camping to keep moisture away.

8.  Apron - Use pinking shears to style into an apron with a bib and fasten ties at the top of the bib and at the waist.  Great for messy tasks around the house.


9.  Tablecloth - toss over the picnic table and voila (!) you are covered!


10. Mulch - use under gravel or bark chips when landscaping to keep out those pesky weeds.


How have you repurposed your old shower curtains?

  3. This is so funny that I have read this. I just purchased two very nice cloth shower curtains from a thrift store. Couldn't pass them up for the price yet I do not really need them. But....I thought what a nice Tablecloth one will be and a cute curtain for a window! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
