I turned a shirt into rags. A lot of the stuff I see on the net about doing this is about transforming t-shirts, which is fine for dusting, but I like rags from stiffer woven fabric for scrubbing. You might note from my pictures that I don’t mind seams, plackets, pockets, etc — they all provide extra tooth when cleaning something stubborn.
I harvested my old gardening shirt for buttons and then rags! Two BB's in one go. It was a ton of fun. I tried to keep seams and finished edges intact, and I also serged the cut edges for a bit more durability. Other scraps went in my fabrics bin to use for patches later. I kept the pocket because it was too cute to cut up. I'll add it to a future project.

An old t-shirt that was a bit too holey for me to wear out anymore. I traced it first so I can make a new one later. It's a nice soft material that I think might work well for cleaning windows without streaks.
