Where I live, animal rescue organizations accept sheets and towels - maybe the same by you?

Use them for dropcloths when you paint.  Or to drape over furniture in storage, to protect from dust and dirt.

Cut them up and use as dust rags

I agree with the local animal shelter if you have one. Ours runs on donations only and really need towels, sheets,etc.

I use them as "dropcloths" underneath my Hollies when I shear them.  Helps a lot with the cleanup afterwards.  I also sometimes use them to cover plants when needed.

If my niece doesn't want them to sell at her yard sales, then I donate them to the local Christian Services store.
