Do You Throw Away Stained Clothes or Continue To Use Them?

I get really annoyed if I can't get a stain out..I guess its been drummed into me that stains are a bad thing to have..however I usually resolve to the fact that its stained and continue to use it. I don't see the point of wasting an item of clothing for a stain. What about you?

  • I keep them, but only allow them to be worn around the house/yard, or when doing messy crafts like painting. Then when they are no longer good to use as "around the house" clothes, they become cleaning rags! :o)

  • some go to rag bin
    some toddler ones, go into things to wear when doing messy things (although i usually do not have enough foresight)
    one top i love, i have washed four times, thinking i am going to get it out, i think i need to get that up-thanks for reminding me to do that

  • I usually throw them away, unless it's a very tiny stain that you can hardly see.

  • It depends. If it's one of the kid's T-shirts, then I'll move it to the pajama drawer. They can sleep in it. If it's something else,I'll probably throw it out. Certain things like baseball pants, they can wear stained.
