How to Use a Broken Washing Basket

Use the bottom of an old plastic laundry basket as a boot tray for muddy shoes. Just cut the broken plastic top off and put it aside. I used a pair of pruning shears to cut the ribs off mine, but a sharp knife or a good pair of scissors would do the same. It sits by the back door and the kids just take their dirty boots and shoes off and drop them in the tray. It keeps the mud and dirt in one spot and the verandah, door mat and floor clean.

Use the top as a bird and cat net in the garden. Simply push the ends down into the soil to form a cage over the top of your plants. They can still get plenty of sun and water but the birds and cats can't get to them. I've saved all the zucchini and cucumber plants by doing this in the veggie garden this summer.
