Found treasures


No, MadSnapper is not totally MAD... this IS a photo of towels in a bucket..

 Hubby found this bucket and 15 white towels, 4 red washcloths sitting by the dumpster at the park where he fly's his RC. Maybe a car wash?

Would you take them home and use them?


I just love the towels. they are square 15 x 15 inches with all 4 edges bound and perfect for house cleaning... the bucket is great for washing windows or cars.


Our  pool side towels are Found Towels By Bob.... people leave them at the park, really nice towels...they hang them on trees, on the fence, or drop on the ground...they now hang in our back yard for the sun to bleach and eat.

Yes I would do what you do.

Of course.

Jo said...

A good wash and airing in hot sunlight and they're good to go! Great find!

Rose said...

I would use them to clean with, just like you plan to do.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Yes, dumpster diving wasn't even necessary to get these great finds and I too would use them for things you described, Sandra...no holes or tears than they are for me!

You can never have enough towels...especially with pets. Wash them, sun them and enjoy them!
I know the local humane society is always begging for people to donate their used towels.

TexWisGirl said...

yes, i'd wash them up and use them as cleaning rags or dog towels, etc. :)

I think it's wasteful by those who just left them but with good cleaning the use of these makes perfect sense. Towel left in the park ? Sad! But again recycling them makes sense.

Molly The Wally said...

Yep washed and used for cleaning would be our choice. Nice bit of recycling we say. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

We have a ton of those small towels. They're so handy!

Ginny said...

These fluffy towels do not even look dirty! Is this after you washed them? Gosh, there must be a lot of absent minded people there, all to YOUR benefit!!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I'm not sure I would bring them home but I definitely think they will be useful around the house!

Susannah said...

Oh yes! I love little towels and cloths to clean with. I would bring them home and wash them and dry and they are as good as new!!!! Like a found treasure!

I believe I'd take them home too.

Val said...

Yes indeed I would take them home, wash and use. Great find!!

A Quiet Corner said...

I found some cleaner at the self serve car wash a few weeks ago....I took it home and it works awesome!...:)JP

Ann said...

those look brand new. Heck yeah I would take them home.

Chatty Crone said...

I think that is something my husband would do for sure - I am not so sure I would - I might be scared to take them!

SweetMarie said...

Most definitely! Those are handy towels! We have a bunch for the garage stuff. :)

Finders Keepers, loosers, weepers.. :)

I would be using them right after a good washing.They look to be in good condition,so why not reuse them.

Angela said...

I love the old saying "finder's keepers"! I would use them no problem at all. Think about it when you go to a hotel you are using towels that someone else used. All they do is wash them. Also, when you stay in a hospital you are wearing a gown that someone else wore and who knows what they were in there for! lol I say great finds and you can't have enough towels in my opinion! I keep a few of these nice Gatorade towels that I got for free when I bought some drinks in my truck. They come in handy! I use them as a bib when I eat in the truck. They are great when it is raining and you get soaked walking to your car. Lots of uses!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Oh yes, I would take them home and bleach them and use them! What a great find! As far as I'm concerned, you can't have too many towels. I can't believe the good stuff people just throw away!

pattisjarrett said...

I wonder if they went back looking for them--or if they meant to get rid of them.

EG CameraGirl said...

Great find. I would use them as cleaning rags...after they had a good cleaning first.

Deb said...

Definitely use them! Good job Bob!

Maggie M said...

I would for sure take them home and use them. Hugs

Linda said...

GREAT finds!!! Finders Keepers - Losers Weepers!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

Heck yeah I would take them home. With all my foster kittens I always need towels. Or I would take them to the shelter, they need tons of towels too.
