Repurpose Tip - Mesh Bags

Did you know you can use those mesh bags that produce (onions, oranges, etc) for laundry bags for small items like socks, etc? Also, if you have a soft, pliable one, you can use it for washing neck scarves! It keeps a scarf from tangling throughout the machine, creating a macrame mess with other laundry. Wash your bras and delicates in them too. Just be sure the bag is NOT "snaggy". 

Also, if you hand wash items such as a sweather or such that would stretch and become a mess, you can hand wash it in a net bag! It will keep the item contained and make it easy to lift and let the water escape quickly and easily! Hang the bag and let it drain for a while and then it will be safe to hang or block depending on the item's specific needs.

Just be selective of the bag you use for washing!
