15 Dish Scrubbies To Make: {Free Patterns}

[Updated} Scrubbies are nice to use and simple to make too! These are handy in the kitchen for scrubbing dishes and gentle enough to use on appliances and counter tops. Also tuck a few into your cleaning bucket since they nicely wipe away fingerprints and scuffs found around the house (fine to use on painted walls). I love making these (they're so quick & easy!) and am always looking for new patterns to try. Consider adding this to your handmade gift list for project ideas, lots of people love receiving them!

Loom/Spool Knit Scrubbies: These scrubbies are really scratchy but because the crino is 100% nylon it won’t scratch Teflon or even a ceran top stove. Washer & dryer friendly.

They work great!!!! I was given one from my grandma a few years ago.  They have a new yarn that even has a scratchy feel and that's what this was made of.  Sadly, I wore it out. sad

I cut strips of netting tulle fabric into strips and use that to crochet my scrubbies.  Scrubs without scratching.
