Okay, I didn't want to reply at the risk of sounding ungrateful because I'm sure the scrubbie is awesome, but here's my take on acrylic yarn...

It stays slimy if it gets just the least bit of grease in it. For some reason food particles tend to get stuck more often. However, the colors stay true a lot longer and it dries three times faster. So there definitely pros and cons. I ditched all my acrylic yarn a while back so I haven't used an acrylic scrubbie since the very first scrubbie I made three years ago. It was Red Heart Super Saver and my pros and cons are based on that.

That said, I'll love anything you send me, Linda P! It's not often I'm on the receiving end of crochet or knit goods. I'm excited! Smiley

Ok, now I can't get the image of slimy scrubbies out of my head... Roll Eyes

I think if you just toss them in the washing machine right after using it you can avoid that problem. Maybe it's true that you can use cotton ones a few times and acrylic ones only once before washing, but I tend to throw them in the bathroom for washing after using them one time, not matter what they are made of.

Slimy Scrubbies will be the name of my rock band if I ever have one. Chances or slim to none that I'll ever have a rock band. I'm too busy knitting to form one.

LMAO! That just made my morning. I've never made an acrylic cloth or scrubbie, but the Leisure Arts Tawashi book I just got uses RHSS for most of the patterns. Hmmm... It does say that in Japan they have a anti bacterial yarn though.

Sorry I was MIA yesterday. I had to go to the ER because I was having signs of a stroke. It took six hours to see someone to tell me it was just a very bad migraine.

I'm on the mend and nursing my bruises and my bruised ego.

As for crafting I'm in tip top shape. Can't say the same for Canada Post. They look like they will strike come Friday morning.

EDIT: Canada Post is on Strike. They will be striking come Friday Morning. I got the o-k from my boss to use the DHL courier in the office to send my stuff so I will ship tomorrow!

I have that too and used it for my partners dish cloths! Actually it was the only cotton yarn I could find around here (wish we had big craft stores  Roll Eyes). It looks pretty but it's expensiiiiiive...

I don't think it sounds ungrateful.  I always make all my cloths out of cotton.. but all the "scrubbie" patterns I found called for RHSS yarn..  The reason is they said it was stiffer and better at scrubbing..
I usually rinse mine out good, and reuse once, unless we had really messy dishes.  My main thoughts, it is in soapy water, so if I rinse it, I should be able to get one more use! Roll Eyes

Will love to see what everyone makes..
