A Storage Solution


I do not use any disposable cleaning cloths but instead I have a selection of microfibre and cotton cleaning cloths as well as an assortment of worn out towels and t-shirts which make great rags for almost any cleaning job.

The cleaning cloths had previously been folded in a pile in the laundry cupboard and the rags were in the cupboard under the laundry tub.

Recently I decided to make a ‘ragbag’ modelled on my memories of one that belonged to my grandmother.

2012-06-27 02I made this from some scraps in my stash of fabric.  The patterned fabric is leftover from nursery curtains I made before Miss O was born, the plain green is the from the op shop doona cover which I used to make my ironing board cover and the binding on the opening came from a collection that belonged to my friend’s mother.  There was no pattern – just my memory and an idea which I turned into reality.

2012-06-27 03It is conveniently located on the inside the the laundry door where I have hung it from the rack which holds my laundry detergent and soap.

This saves me trying to keep a pile of cloths stacked neatly on the shelf.  Sometimes it can be the most simple thing that makes life easier.
