DIY: Old clothes into new pet toys

Spring cleaning is the perfect time to say “bone voyage” to the clothes you no longer wear. However, some of those old socks, pants and more can be repurposed into fun, engaging toys for your pets.

For best results, use sturdy cotton garments with no glitter or accents that will create a mess or a choking hazard. Always supervise your pets playtime with toys and remove any pieces that detach or pose a threat for consumption.
