    When my fish net broke, I used the onion bag to replace the net. I just sewed it onto the metal ring.

    use them instead of plastic bags when buying fruit and veg

    I do like the idea of kitchen scrubbie tho 🙂

    You can also take them shopping with you and use them for your fresh produce instead of those wretched plastic bags that everyone seems to use…

    girl friday, thats a great idea!! I don’t use the plastic bags.. i just have produce floating around the trolley which has led to a few squished bits and bobs.

    Also.. how do people that use them for scrubbers tie them up ?? what sort of pattern? 😛

    I’ve given up trying to tie mine up, Vickie. If I was really industrious, I might stitch one end, then roll it into itself and stitch it up, but so far I just scrunch it in my hand and use it that way. Any knot you tie in it will always come undone, it’s just the nature of that plastic material to not stay tied.

    perhaps use onion bags as ties for young trees?

    Cor, wish I’d thought of this before the Currawongs got half the custard apples – darn!
