Can the shredder handle t-shirt material?

04/04/2018 at 23:42

Hi all!
We are running a little community project, turning pre-loved t-shirts into bags which we give away for free to encourage people to ditch the single use plastic shopping bag.
By now we have accumulated heaps of off-cuts and are reluctant to just biff them (ie them going in the landfill).
Would the shredder be able to handle t-shirt off-cuts? this way we could use the shredded material as stuffing for crafty projects.
Any thoughts?

Hi Keva. The simple short answer would be no. Cloth would be like plastic bags. It will just wrap around the shredder shaft and blades. You need a simple flat bladed cutting system that is super sharp to cut both materials.

@keva try a normal paper shredder it might work?
