You need at least a dozen if you live in Sicily.
One to wash dishes, one to schlep wet towels from the machine to the clothes line, one to hold clothespins, one for picking or storing oranges, one for mopping stone tiles, one for the compost, one for glass, one for plastic, one for paper….
They must be in a rainbow of colors, so that you don’t mistakenly schlep the clean laundry in the floor-mopping tub or wash the dishes in the compost bin.
In Sicilia, you’ll find them liberally sprinkled around balconies and back doors, like urban bouquets.
