Let's Scrub!

The netting used to package oranges and other fruits makes a perfect soft scouring pad. Just cut the top and bottom of the bag off and fold the netting. Then, put a rubber band around the middle of the folded netting for a nice, soft pad. This is so amazing and works really well, saving you $$$ on buying scrub pads
