I’ve been saving my onion bags for ages – the red plastic mesh ones – and I need some suggestions for ‘easy’ recycling ideas (besides putting my onions in them). Have no idea what I was saving them for, just didn’t want to throw them away.
All ideas gratefully accepted.
Tie a cake of soap inside and hang it on the outside tap then when you need to wash your hands no need to go inside.
Use as Bait bags in Marron Traps.
Soft ones can be used to wash the bugs off cars.
Cut them into strips and then using cotton (maybe crochet cotton?) or I like to use the string off feed bags.. knit them up into dish scrubbies. The last one I made lasted over a year.. must make another one soon.
If you have the kind of cutlery draining basket that things fall out of put it in an onion bag.
If you are into pottery use them to imprint clay! :laugh: A lomg time ago I went to pottery classes.
Our teacher was good but very particular …….I admit I put “Teabags” backwards to stir her up…… 🙁
Hang peanuts and fruit in them for the wild birds ….or perhaps caged ones too?
Wow, some good ideas there. Thanks everyone. Now I can empty that drawer and use it for something useful. 🙂
I use them to store bulbs/corms in – hang them in the shed roof space and it keeps the rats and mice from eating them.
Put one on your head to amuse very young grandchildren……do not continue when they are old enough to report at Day Care “My Nanna wears onion bags on her head………..
Oh Blue Wren, why not? As an ex teacher things like that made my day!!!!!!

Would you like to lend me some grandchildren, Blue
wren, and I’ll try it LOL
Sorry marz – don’t have any handy!! :laugh: :laugh:
I put them over fruit on the trees as they grow and ripen. Keeps the birds away.
I use mine as kitchen and bathroom scourers. They work just as well as the yellow plastic ones you can buy at Bunnings. Mind you, I’m getting to have a lifetime supply under my sink, so these new ideas for using them are welcome as well!
