How To Make Inexpensive Cleanup "Towels" For Your Shop
Here's how to make inexpensive cleanup "towels" for your farm shop. Use old telephone books. They work great for wiping oil dip sticks and as quick towels for everyday use. To make them useful, though, you have to do a little preparation. I first clamp a piece of 3/8-in. plywood to the top and bottom of the book, and then drill a 1/2-in. dia. hole through one corner of the book. Then I take the clamps off and run the book through a table saw, cutting off about 1/4-in. of the glued binding. Then I just take off the front and back cover and hang the pages from a nail or shower curtain hook. The pages come off easy and they're very absorbent.
