Don’t throw away that empty mesh produce bag! Give it a summer job, and put it to work instead:

o Dunk it into soapy water and scrub dead bugs off your windshield.

o Tuck a bar of soap into it, hang it on an outside faucet, and wash your garden-grimy hands—no need to remove the soap.

o Wad it up, put it in the bottom of a vase, and stick fresh-cut flower stems through the holes. They’ll stay exactly where you want them.
