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