I made this tonight while watching CSI and I'm pretty happy with the out come. It's 3" finished and quite scratchy! Any suggestions or stories would be much appreciated, I've never used these before or made them, so any hints/tips would be great.  Smiley

These are great for dishes when made with Phantex and great body scrubber with cotton.
They take no time at all too make and everybody keeps asking for them Smiley
What i like about them is that they are handmade Wink, they are "green", dont scratch your pots and pans and dont make your water all yukki from the traditional "s.o.s." steel wool.
Great job  Grin

I have never seen these!
I have inherited the regular square dishcloths from my mom. Unfortunately my aunt no longer makes these. I love them though and the fact that the are so durable and can are great for wiping up messes. I will have to find some of these as I too hate sos pads but my hub aka Splishy(he loves doing dishes) loves them. I really love that cotton ones can be used as body scrubbers! You craftsers Rock!!!

I use nylon net to make these. Just cut the nylon net into 2 inch strips and tie the strips together, and crochet. I use one in the kitchen and one in the shower (they are great to remove soap scum).
Next, I am going to make one out of cotton and use for a body scrubber.

Some kitchen towels and a couple of the scratchy ones would make a nice gift or add a couple of the cotton ones to a spa gift basket.

Mine does too, thankfully. I HATE doing dishes, lol.

I used 1inch Nylon netting (1ish inch, I cut it myself so they're not exact. Wink and 1 strand of Sugar and Cream cotton. He said it needed a lot of soap until it got good and wet and then it worked like a dream.

I also make the square dish / face cloths and love them. I made a scrubby version for my kitchen by using cotton to make a regular washcloth, then another of a slightly smaller size out of nylon thread. I then used single crochet along the edges to attach the 2 layers together and make a border at the same time. So I have a soft side for wiping and the nylon side for scrubbing. I love it for cleaning my stove top.
I like the idea of these pad size scrubbies. I will have to try that!

I have made some about 1 1/2" in diameter with cotton yarn to use as makeup remover.  I was always getting the fuzz from the makeup remover pads, didn't like tissues, nor tp.  These are working great.  I also made larger ones to use in the shower as a wash cloth.  They help foliate, yet are not too scratchy.  I have also made these with net and use on my pots and pans.
