50 Reasons You Should Have Lots of Bandannas
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.
Keep in the car to defog the windshield.
Wrap a sandwich - and use as a napkin while eating said sandwich.
Use as a belt on a little person - or tie a couple together for a bigger person.
Clothe a doll.
Signal for help if you are stranded.
Tie a red one to items sticking out of your car.
Rob a bank (for pretend!)
Use as a tourniquet for those pesky limb amputations.
