Recycled Fruit Nets For Scouring Pads

I like to recycle the red nets that fruit comes in sometimes and use them as scouring pads. They work great in scrubbing your kitchen sink out with baking soda, as a pan scrubber, and are even good at scrubbing stickers off items!

I use my vegetable and fruit netting as well. I just take the nets and secure them w/rubber bands at both ends. I add to my "scrubber" as I get a new empty net. These are great to clean dishes/pots and pans with.

I also use them when I wash my car to remove the dried bugs. Works great.

Thanks for sharing that great tip. I would have never thought of that. I threw away so many of the great California Cuite bags.... Now I know. Thanks.
