This is not a craft, but I wanted to share with you how you can repurpose the plastic mesh bags that fruit and veggies sometimes are packaged in. Go green and make a scrubby that works really well on cleaning up dishes or stuck-on particles that have taken up residence on your counters or floor.
Here is how you do it:
1. Retrieve the plastic mesh bag you put in the re-cycle bin
2. Cut out the label. If you skip this step you will find that the label becomes gummy once it is wet.
3. Fold the mesh into a desirable size and zig zag around the edges. I use whatever color of thread that is my sewing machine at the time. Trim the edges and you are done!
And there you go---you have saved some money and been friendly to the environment in about 5 minutes!
