This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Nest.

In this Badge Bit, you will set up a Rag System. (Note that this BB is part of a choose your own adventure list BB called the Jeeves List)

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are you must set up the following rag system, where there was none before:
- Dirty rag basket (with labels)
    - Must be a breathable basket so rags don’t rot
- Clean rag storage

To document this BB, post pictures or a 2-minute video depicting the following:
- Before: Whatever you used to do with rags that wasn't this system
- Breathable Dirty Rag Basket with Labels
- Clean Rag Storage - complete with clean rags

We have a bag of left-over PUL (diaper cloth fabric). It's where we put our rags, towels, napkin and other very dirty things. It gets washed every 2 or 3 days. Before this, dirty rags just went with the rest of our laundry. We also didn't have nearly as many filthy rags, etc, before I made this bag (I made the bag when I had our baby, as babies generate a need for lots of rags and lots of cleaning)

We store our clean rags in an old laundry detergent box under our kitchen sink. The cleaning towels go to the right of it (most of those are in the wash right now)

Staff note (Mike Barkley):

I certify this BB is complete.
