I was given a bath pouf in my Christmas stocking, and it's completely unraveled itself already. As opposed to buying a new one, I thought I'd see if any of you know how I can fix it, or re-create it.  The pouf unraveled into one long doubled strip about 3" wide.  I've tried just tying it in a series of knots, but those all seem to fall apart once I actually use it. 

Thanks!

Not that I am in any way trying to discourage your attempts at recyling, but you do realize that a new pouf is going to cost you less than 99 cents?  For me, anyway, it wouldn't be worth the hassle.

But, if you really want to save it, I have not suggestions, but wish you luck!

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

When mine unraveled, I got the loops and accordian folded them. I tied them off with a rubberband and put the rope back on. I'm glad I did too Because now I can't find that kind of pouf again.  Wink

yeah, i know it's cheap to buy a new one, but I literally am broke. I honestly have $20 to last me until February 10th.

Here is a pattern for a bath scrubbie which is in the same design as a bath pouff or puff...just use a softer tulle like ballet tulle
