50 Reasons You Should Have Lots of Bandannas

Bandanna's are awesome! Hands down one of the most versatile tools at our disposal, but few people truly comprehend the genius of the simple bandanna  Fear not! I will remedy this for you dear reader, and you can spread the word!

Unfortunately, the versatility and ease of use for bandanna's have been forgotten as of late - as the forces of evil have claimed them as their badge. However, I think I can risk heading to the grocery store in my Momcar and my tie-dye colored doo-rag with kids in tow without being mistaken for a gang member.

Bandannas are very inexpensive, we are talking 1$ a piece for something you will be able to use and reuse many times. They are 100% cotton, so very absorbent, soft, and wash easily. They are also resistant to fading. We use them for many things on this list, some things I admit that I did get creative - others, I read on different websites.

So here you go, 50 ways to use a bandanna:

Make a sweatband for exercising or work.
