I have some scarves that I used to use for chakra meditation. I sprinkled holy water on them and said some prayers over them. I sometimes still wear them. Is what I did enough or do you think it would better to throw them out?

Inanimate objects, in themselves, are neither good or evil. The problem comes:
1) when there is an attachment to them, a reluctance to get rid of the item. This could indicate a occult attachment.
2) when symbolic meaning of the item may trigger one psychologically or spirituality. This can make a person vulnerable to psychological abreaction or other reaction and/or demonic attack.
3) when the item is such that it has no purpose or use other than for evil actions.
4) when there is a curse or other demonic attachment on the item itself.
Blessing the item and praying an "exorcism" over the item may remove any curse or demonic attachment.
If you have no undue attachment to the scarves and there is no other spiritual problems you are having then you may be okay to use the scarves for other purposes once they are blessed (I would recommend a priest bless them).
You should not keep them as a souvenir, if you find yourself resistant to the idea to get rid of them, or if there are any manifestations of spiritual problems.
