DIY Zero Waste Tissues


My nose has been running a lot lately which means that I have been using a lot of tissues - not exactly low waste. Therefore I wanted a solution that was not disposable but reusable instead which led me to these: tissues made of fabric. Super easy to do and when a lot of them have been used just throw them in the wash in one of those laundry bags for delicates and they are as good as new.

The fabric is a pillow case I found at the thrift store but literally anything cotton will do. Now let's get into it:

Optional: Iron the fabric before you start cutting. This will make the cutting part much easier if the fabric is very wrinkly. 

Cut the fabric into rectangles the desired size. I cut mine 9x15 cm. Cut as many as you would like.

Make a zig zag stitch around the edges so the fabric won't unravel - if you have an overlocker use that around the edges. 

Cut off any excess thread and you are done! Repeat with every rectangle

Have a jar for your unused tissues and then one where you have used tissues so you don't have to wash them as you use them. 

How easy was that?? Thank you for reading!
