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.

What's that look like? I'm not seeing it!

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.
