    I have three polos from PetSmart, royal blue with the logo and everything that I don't know what to do with. I asked the manager if he wanted them back, he said to just toss them, that they wouldn't make people wear other people's shirts. It feels wasteful to just toss shirts in excellent condition. I left on good terms but I don't want to represent the company by wearing the shirts, and even if you can't see the logos they look like Walmart or Best Buy shirts.
    Most online suggestions involve cutting them up and wearing them in different ways. I'm looking for a use for them that wouldn't have me wearing them. It's a thick, stretchy material, 2 long sleeved and one short sleeved. Any suggestions?

    Shirts usually make good cleaning cloths. And polishing, cos they are usually pretty lung free.

    I would probably just wear around the house/ farm. I go threw clothes super fast just working in them. But usually once they reach the point that I can’t wear the any more I’ll keep them still. I have used old clothing for when I had a kid that I had to bring in the house and needed bedding. When my dog got mad at her bed I got a bunch and laid down and threw a blanket over it for a bed till I got her a new one. Rags for cleaning. You could probably cut them up and make little goat kid coats if your crafty like that. Or give them away if you don’t want to ruin them.

    The fabric may not be very absorbent (some sort of polyester designed to stretch and dry fast) so I'm not sure how effective it would be as a rag but I'll try the diy bag thing.
