Use A Net Bag For Clothes Pins

A lot of us still hang our clothes out to dry during the nice days on clothes lines that require you to use clothes pins. A lot of us leave the clothes pin bag hanging on the lines to use the next time and end up with dirty nasty looking bags with dirty clothes pins inside. Well I have found a solution to that problem and have had my clothes pin bag hanging on my line for 5 years and it's still very usable.


I use one of those white net bags people use for their delicate fabrics in the washers. It has a zipper, the clothes pins won't fall out any which way. They get washed every time it rains, and they are not warped.

Oh yeah, did I mention? I live in the northern Michigan woods where squirrels, chipmunks and raccoons are always looking for something to play with or eat. This way they can't get to your clothes pins either.
