Plastic mesh bags made from the smaller stiffer mesh can be rolled up and used as a cleaning scratcher, then thrown in the dish washer to cleanup for the next use.


You can use turkey mesh bags to store sweet potatoes by threading a recycled shoe string through one end and tying it so you can hang them.

It's wonderful that you want to care for the birds but as a wildlife rehabber I can tell you we get many birds with broken legs or feet when they get caught in the mesh. many also strangle and it is too late for us to help. Please do not use mesh for nests or feeding of any kind.

I found this useful as a dish scrubber. It is easy to grab and does the job quickly and efficiently.

I save all the round pieces of tulle from weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, etc. and use them when I am rinsing off my dishes. Many times the dishes need a little extra scrubbing power before they go in the dishwasher. Instead of spending money on the sponges with the scrubber side I use the tulle to serve the same purpose. Once they start to tear, you can discard them without seeing your money go in the trash as well.


I have also gone to the fabric store and bought a small amount of heavier tulle for mere pennies to use on the more difficult, dried on, dishes and pans. The tulle does not scratch your Teflon, and with the many colors tulle comes in you can color code its use ability.
