|Trim off the seams and the hem. This turtleneck gave|
me eight hankies, two produce sleeves and a dickie
to wear under my work blouses. That''ll be use #5.
I've tried lots of different brands of tissue and have decided that my favorite thing to blow my nose with is a soft cotton knit handkerchief - as in a recycled t-shirt.
Depending on the shirt, I can get 4 to 8 nice handkerchiefs. I pick these for their feel, nice and thick and soft. I cut them about 9-inches square, just for ease of use and I do cut off all the hems and seams. I don't hem them, the edges handle washing just fine.
After use, I put them in the hamper and wash them with my regular laundry.
Not a romantic use for an old shirt, but a practical one.
