    Clever uses for old yoga mats…

    1. Cover the floor in your hall closet with this easy to clean material so you can store dirty boots with out leaving a mess.

2. Cut the mat to fin in an old picture frame and hang in a kid’s room or utility area as a bulletin board.

3. Cut a 5” x 5” square to use as a grip to help unstick stubborn jars or containers.

4. Trim to size and place under sofa or chair legs to protect the floor from scratches.

5. Snip a mat into strips to tuck into gaps in windows and doors to prevent drafts.

If I can count on you, and you can count on me, just think what a wonderful world this would be.
