Nice @Silvia Benoit. I donate mine to the local Salvation Army. Hats and scarves.
Good deed...............although the SA sells to everybody.
What about knitted face washers ( it’s all I use ) I’m a member of a crafty forum and quite a few knit or crochet face washers and have no trouble selling them or using them as a swap gift , the forum is Australian and we have a non compulsory swap once or twice a year.
( it has members from all over the world )
I have about 1/2 dozen well used 100%. cotton face washes I’ve got in swaps ,as well as myself making a few myself and I’m no crafter ..I can and do sew when I feel like it , I have a 21 year old embroidery sewing machine that’s still working so if and when I take part in a swap I usually embroider a couple of nice hand towels .
I buy the cotton from the big shops like Spotlight / or Big W which is a chain store , when it’s on special .I never buy if it’s not on special ,I recently bought rolls of 100 cotton for $3 a ball normally $8 a ball
Here is small example of what can be made 100’s free pattens on line
They can also be used as a dish or cleaning cloth .
I would never have thought of using something with that open a weave as a face cloth or towel. I bet terrycloth feels like sandpaper by comparison.
Yes @John Brunner as we age our skin tends to be more sensitive , I mainly use the cotton cloths on my face ( in the shower ) they never dry hard like terry face washers can and so.
These are the ones (I made ) and using at the moment.
I made a couple for hubby in a dark blue and he uses them on his bathroom vanity to stand his razor
charger (he has his own bathroom ) as I use the ensuite
THANKS A LOT'YOUR SUGGESTIONS ARE GRAT
BTW...Are you from Australia? I loved this country.
Yes @Silvia Benoit I’m was born in Australia ...and I’ve never moved far ...I live about 500 km from where I was born ,and I’ve never traveled outside of Aust
I’ve never really had much interest in traveling outside of Australia ,even tho hubby and I traveled for 2 years with our caravan there is still lots of places in Aust still on our bucket list
( not cities )
I spent a month and four days in Sydney......
Bondi beach, Circular Q, , Sydney Opera, my first cricket game and I was amused by some Americans who were surprised of the sun setting on the west. We jumped from Sydney to New Zealand and enjoyed Rotorua, the Waitomo Caves ...the stalactites caves .and the people of both countries.
If you decide to make any face washers I’d love to see them ,I have lots of different coloured thread but haven’t made any for a while ,as I said I’m not a crafty lady so I make one or two when mine are staring to look a little shabby ....but they last forever and stay nice and soft
I’m in South Aust ( I live a couple of hours drive away from the city of Adelaide )
Sydney is nice for a visit ..but to busy for me ....
I recently became aware of this group, who provide "Knitted Knockers" free for breast cancer survivors. I wish I knew how to knit; I'd be all over this. https://www.knittedknockers.org/
ETA--and since I can't knit, I made a donation to the organization.
