You've now given me another great idea!  Yesterday I watched
a waiter with a bottle of Windex and a package of large coffee
filters cleaning all the doors  in the I-Hop Restaurant we were
in ....  Obviously, necessity is indeed the mother of invention. 

I've only tried to grow watermelons once. I actually bought two 
starters and planted them in a hill. Plenty of room around, plus
all-day sunshine and daily watering.  They produced one melon 
each which grew nicely for about 4 weeks -- and then one day 
I found them yellowed, and two days later they had rotted.  Did
not try again.
