I have found that placemats, which I rarely use on my table, have such versatile uses. And today, I just discovered a new one! You can take an old placemat — cloth or vinyl — and use it to line drawers. This is especially helpful for kitchen or cosmetic drawers that tend to get pretty yucky after a while. When it’s time to clean it out, just lift up the placemat with it’s contents, empty it out onto a clear countertop and shake the placemat over the trash can. If it’s really dirty, wipe it with a wet cloth or throw in with a load of laundry.
