Don’t be too quick to throw out the bag that comes with your bulk purchases of avocados, onions, potatoes, or lemons. When you need to clean a charred saucepan or a scorched pan, the mesh net produce bags from your veggie hauls might come in handy. You don’t have to go out and buy new sponges when you can just whip up a new one on the spot.


This isn’t just good for the environment; it’s good for the wallet, too! Fortunately, that’s a good thing. The good news is that you don’t need to be an expert crafter in order to get the benefits of creative reuse. With just five minutes to spare, we’ve got just the kitchen DIY for you. The Fallen Acorns on Youtube shows you this simple tutorial.


  • Mesh fruits or vegetable bags
  • empty rice sack/bag
  • Needle
  • Scissors


While it’s preferable to use a bag that has been opened from the end so you can work more easily, I used one that had holes in it for the filling and another with a small hole for the outside. When I was done, I used four of the same-sized plastic bags that had been used to store oranges.

Using a scissor, carefully clip the ends of the produce bags and any dangling threads.

Mesh fabric should be cut into long, wide strips. When you’re done, stack them on top of one another. Make a rectangle form by folding them in half. In order to have a larger mesh, place the rectangular mesh in the middle. Use a larger mesh to cover it. With a pair of scissors, snip the edges of the mesh.

You’ll need your rice bag. Remove the hem’s strings. Then, sew the rectangle scrubber’s sides together to finish it up.
