Make or Buy a Utility Mesh Laundry Sack for the Bug-Out Bag

What better way to wash your clothes in a stream than secured in a mesh bag?! Nobody wants that scenario, but you never know. It's good to follow the Boy Scout Motto, and Be Prepared.
Polyester utility mesh fabric is available at Jo-Ann for $2.99 per yard (48 inches wide), and sometimes you can find mesh laundry bags on e-bay.

I prefer to make my own mesh bag, with a heavy-duty drawstring that will hold up while holding my clothes in rough water.

The utility mesh drawstring bag can be used for sifting compost over your garden--it will keep the rich dirt rock-free.

Utility mesh is also good for making curtains that admit fresh air into your rooms, while providing cover (see Elegant French Curtains).
