This may sound dumb but what do people do with school uniform that can't be donated/swapped (i.e. with marks on or worn down)? 🤔 ... See MoreSee Less

I put mine in the kerbside recycling or fabric recycling bins (but cut off buttons first for my button box! 😆)

I donate to charity shops as rags

Fire 🔥🔥🔥

Send their younger sibling in it! In all seriousness, I put it in textile recycling like any other clothes (after removing useful buttons etc).

I've got a bag of old, worn stuff that I'm going to try to make into bunting for the PTA.

When it’s got so stained I’ve just had so cut it up and use as clothes. Which has actually been great, as I don’t buy wipes, tissues or jcloths etc at all anymore.

Anyone managed to get dry wipe pen out of uniform😭

I make hair scrunchies with them and sell them at school fayre x

My child just wears it as is marks and all and then we pass it on to a younger child because in primary school, it’s too much to stress about that level of tidiness. 🤷‍♀️ For some of the bigger shirts, the reception and year one kids can use them to wear over their clothes as a smock when painting or messy play.

Ages ago our pta made school uniform bunting for school events.

Make scrunchies to sell at the school fair?
