DIY Car Wash Mitts
Make car wash mitts out of an old bathrobe! Treat yourself or a family member to a new robe and repurpose the old one with this upcycling craft. After all, it's so much easier to hand wash your car when you use mitts to do so. Why not turn something old into new car mitts. This helpful video tutorial will teach you how to make them in no time. Your clean car will thank you. They also make great gifts! For Father's Day or another festive occasion, why not make these for dad and wash his car with them, too? It's a wonderful thing to repurpose old clothing items like this.

- Old robe
- Knitted cuffs that you can get at any fabric store
- Kai fabric scissors
- Sewing machine
Cut the robe into large squares of fabric so you have an easy surface to work from.
Using off-season wrapping paper or any other large scrap paper, draw a large mitten shape and cut it out.
Fold the bathrobe fabric in half and pin the pattern on.
Cut it out. Do the same for a second mitten, pinning the pattern in place and then cutting it out.
Sew two of the cutouts together around the top of the mitt.
Turn inside out. Add the knit cuff around the opening on the mitten and pin the edges together.
Sew around the opening, turn the cuff rightside out, and you're done! Repeat with the other glove for a matching set.
