March 23, 2018 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

For this reason, when they become worn, some people find it hard to throw them away --- they were such beautiful towels!

But appearance also plays a part in how long we use towels, and so while replacing towels that are in plain sight in the bathroom, the old ones can be used for new purposes or transformed into something completely different!
