Idea Exchange: Recycling old sweatpants
We use hot-water bottles to provide comfort to our patients while they are in the hospital. To help keep these bottles clean and to provide a soft surface for the animals to snuggle up to, we cover our hot-water bottles with the cut off legs of old fleece sweatpants. These washable covers are the perfect shape, and they're free—our employees donate their old sweats.
