reusing old vinyl shower curtains?

odd question, but I bought a new shower curtain today because one of the ones we had...it was tme to get rid of it lol. But I felt bad throwing it away (I did of course). If it werent in that bad of a condition, what could I have done with it to reuse it somehow? I can already say I'd save the magnets for a craft project or something...

  • WE use an old shower curtain in the summer as a tarp for coverig the baby pool so we don't have to empty and refill it every day plus it keeps misquotes out.

  • We've used them to cover a surface for painting, both for the house and paint for our two year old.

  • I throw mine in the washer with beach, soak it a while w/hot water and put it on the clothes line to dry and straighten out. I can do that a few times before I think it needs to be thrown out. The bleach gets rid of all the mildew.

  • You can use it for painting, projects, or if its clean cut out shapes and let the kids paint them with craft paint and make window clings out of them.

  • You can use it to create a huge game on it. Take the colored sharpie markers and create a design. It's big enough to were the kids can be the markers for the game. Best of all, once you are finished, you can just fold it up and store it away. It doesn't take up much room.

  • We have an open metal bookcase in the garage and we cover the front so dust doesn't get them easily.
