Featured in the PR book!
Not sure if this has been suggested...I have a little basket near my sewing table that I keep prewashed, precut, rolled press cloths. I find that I go through a lot of press cloths especially when I'm doing a lot of fusing or working with bleedable/colored fabrics. I like a fresh one with each new project. So, I use leftover muslin and I cut it to size with my rotary cutter, roll them up individually, and place them in my basket. It takes less than 5 minutes and I have a good supply on hand whenever I need one!

What a great idea! I have a used muslin sitting in the sewing trash. I'll take it out and prep it for the ironing area.
