Rag Bags and other old time uses of stuff!

Nicknames sure can be colorful.

I have a co-worker nicknamed "Ragbags".

You know how your mind can lead itself on a trail pretty easily.... today was one of those times.

I heard one of the guys mention "Ragbags", and I thought of how when I was a kid, way back in the old days, we actually used rags for cleaning.

By rags, I mean stuff we used to wear, but then was just too raggedy to wear any longer.
Shirts; t-shirts in particular were the most popular items to use for washing the floor, windows, bathroom, or dusting.

But, on occasion, I remember being handed a pair of old skivvies to use! Imagine that! They were clean, of course, but still! Having to use an old pair of your dad's underpants to dust the coffee tables just seems hilarious now that I look back at it.

Do you have any odd things like that from the past that just pop into your mind by hearing a simple phrase or by seeing something?

I've been chuckling to myself all day about the rags in the rag bag we used to have!

I am a Putnamaniac that remembers all the things we used to use in our Rag Bag growing up!
