Here’s a smart way to upcycle an old bath towel to save energy at home: Use it as a draft dodger. Roll the towels into a tight sausage shape, and tie string or rope at the ends and in the middle to keep it secure. Jam it along the base of a door or window, and it will keep chilly drafts at bay. And here’s another simple idea: Cover your ironing board with an old towel before ironing. The soft surface will protect clothes, speed up the ironing process and is easily removable in case you need to wash it.
