I have a scrubby I got in one of those holiday gift baskets that you give someone you don't know what to get - you know, bottle of bath gel, bottle of lotion, pouf or scrubby, conveniently placed in a basket with filler and shrink-wrapped? It's got some sort of twine or something knitted on the front of it, and the back is terry cloth. I love it but it's falling apart now. I crochet soap saver sacks from cotton yarn and I'm thinking if I hold some twine stuff together with the yarn I can make them super exfoliatey, but I'm not sure what to use. Like would one of those balls of hemp or stuff you find in the jewelry-making aisle work? Would it fall apart? Start to rot? Anyone have experience with this kind of thing?

the yarn used for plastic canvas is rough, I made up a bunch of dish scrubbers for friends to try it  out and they loved them. One even paid me $10 to make her 4 to send to her sister for Christmas last year. Some stores sale it by the skiens or you can pick up the little things of them at walmart for under $1

I have used the plastic canvas yarn to make bath scrubbies and it works really well. Both to crochet with and to exfoliate.

You should've heard the big "OHHHHHH" I just did. Duh, I know that stuff. For some reason I was thinking the plastic stuff you make lanyards with. I will have to pick some of that up and try it! Thanks so much for the help.
