Mesh Bags for Dishwashing Small Items

I save the mesh bags from produce items, such as onions and shallots, the finer the mesh the better. Make sure there are no holes in the bag, other than those already in the mesh fabric. Cut off the ends of the bag to form a tube shape. Place a rubber band tightly at one end. Place small items that would fly around during the dishwasher cycle. Close the other open end with another rubber band, again, wound tightly. Put the mesh bag in an area of the dishwasher, preferably the top rack in a spot where the bag will stay put. Run your dishwasher, and voila! The small items will be clean, and the bag will be re-usable. Keep in mind to make certain the items you plan to wash are dishwasher safe.

Great idea. Why didn't I think of that before reading your post. Duh.
Thank you for sharing this simple and time saving trick.

I've used the mesh bags for laundry in the dishwasher for small items. If the zipper rusts, just pull it out and tie the bag stuff with string.
