Gardening - Recycle Nylons
You can use panty hose, just cut off the legs, or you can use knee highs.
Slip onions into the nylon one at a time tying a knot on the top of each onion as you add them. Most knee highs will hold 4 or 5 onions and leave you enough space for hanging the hose either on a nail or tie a piece of twine to the top and hang it that way.
Hang the onions in a cool, airy, dry place. Each time you need to use an onion just takes the scissors and snip off the onion on the bottom below the knot.
You can also use nylons to tie around plants so that they can stay in place. As the plants grown the nylon stretches with it.
