    I predict a scrubbie shortage! GREAT IDEA! I'm going out tomorrow and pick up a few scrubbies to experiment with. A double fold of some sorts to create a pocket for the ridge line on each end.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    Found mine at Dollar General Store.

    They had a whole bin full for a buck a shot. Look and see if any have shipped with the string already broken or missing. Found two now that were free!

I'm sure you have probably seen these in the dollar stores for a buck or two. They are in the bath and shower section and look like a wadded up piece of netting with a loop of string tied around them. They're used for scrubbing yourself in the shower using soap, shower gel and such.

    Nice idea! I picked up one yesterday so I can give it a try over the weekend. Only issue was my color selection was pink or purple

    yep, headed to Dollar General (and then to Wally World if needed) this afternoon. This idea came just in time as I ordered a tarp last week from Warbonnet!!

    Now, those are colors that speak to me I'll be doing this easy project this week too. Perhaps they're big enough to shove my over sized hammock into a separate skin too, that would be handy.

    Is there any chance that the rough scrubby can damage the lightweight sil nylon?

    Also, how do the skins compare to the bishop bag in terms of storage, packability and deployment?
