Isn't that the same thing? It is already a Breast Cancer cover which means money from KitchenAid went to the charity for it. They won't want it back, but they could sure use the money it could bring in.

No, I meant donate it to a thrift store. They will sell it there and the money goes to charity. That avoids having to auction it off on eBay.

In this case, not having a cover isn't a problem... it's an opportunity. Learn to sew.

If you make your own cover, you can have it any color, material or design you want. And if sewing intimidates you, find a person who will work with you and make it a learning project. Have fun!

Thanks. Every year around this time my wife sends a load of things to the local Goodwill. We will donate the mixer cover in its original packaging to Goodwill.

That's my favorite way to recycle. I would probably buy it and cut it down to make a cover for my sewing machine.

Speaking of recycling, I get my neighbors to give me their used clothes so I can scavange fabric for sewing. What I don't use is placed in a bag downstairs for anyone else to take. Everything is taken by them or for their families. Nothing goes to waste.

You should always have a cover for your appliance.

Care to expand on that, Spork?

I mean yes for food save reasons you should cover them, but whether my appliance is covered or not, I still give it a good wipe down with hot soapy water or a disinfecting wipe before I use it.

They are linty. Why have a cover if they aren't for keeping the dust off? Sorry.
