Storing Gardening Gloves in a Tennis Ball Container

A MOTHER reader shares his idea for using a clear plastic tennis ball container with a plastic top for storing gardening gloves and keeping bugs out of the gloves.

Storing gardening gloves in a plastic tennis ball container keeps the bugs out of your gloves. 

When storing her rubber work and garden gloves, my wife puts them into a clear plastic tennis ball container with a plastic top. Storing gardening gloves this way keeps her gloves free of spiders when they are stored in dark places, under the sink or in her garden tool shed.
