18 cool ways to reuse your old bed sheets!

Many of us are used to keeping things that we no longer use, that are damaged or that we don't like too much, in case we ever need it again. 

This is often the case with bedding, which we literally let sleep in the back of a closet.

But why keep it, if you don't use it anymore? The logic would be to throw away what has become unusable, or to donate. 

But wait! You can give almost anything a second life! It’s practical, economical, ecological and time-consuming, especially in this period of confinement. ;-) 

Quickly go check the shelves from your wardrobe! Take out your abandoned sheets and see how you can transform them easily. 

1. PJ pants

It is the essential item for everything confined! Instead of ordering new comfortable pants on the web, simply make them with the soft fabric of the bed sheets!

Maybe your sheets weren't suitable for your new mattress, but if you find them pretty, you can use them to decorate your bed otherwise!

It is known, our animals like to snuggle up in our sheets. So we invite them to lie on their own cushion, made with foam and an old sheet!

10. Laundry bag 

For the dirty clothes of young adults who will one day return to do laundry at dad and mom, or for the dirty clothes to bring back from trip (because we will one day be able to travel again), a bag formed by a sheet and a rope can be very practical!
