Use a Mesh Onion Bag as a Scrubber

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.

You can also use those mesh bags to help the birds build nests. Stuff them with hair from a hair brush, pieces of string, yarn, material, etc. and hang outside. The birds will come shopping for their nests!

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.

Thank you! Those are some great ideas! With spring coming, I will be ready to set out nesting material.
