Next on my list of ways to green up, is produce bags. I always put my produce in bags at the store. And when I get home, I can't find another way to reuse them. Number one, they don't fit in the garbage cans. Number two, I could reuse them at the store, but I feel like I should clean them out before taking them back to reuse 'em. And I never clean them out- I just don't like to. I will wash Ziplocs, but apparently not produce bags. So instead, I thought I would try to make some lightweight produce bags that I could wash and reuse. I found a good tutorial at Wisdom of the Moon. She suggests using tulle or sheer fabric, but I didn't have any so I thought I would try some cheesecloth I did have laying around. Let me tell you- it was a bad idea.
Here is what happened the first time I put produce in my bag.
Obviously, cheesecloth isn't going to cut it. But garage sale season is almost upon us so a shopping I will go!
