Crochet nylon net scrubbies are quick, easy, and fun to make. They are useful in the kitchen for the crafter and make great gifts and craft sale items. This is a guide about making crochet nylon net scrubbies.
Does anyone know how to get rid of a chemical smell with the netting used to make crocheted scrubbies.
How do I find a spool of netting to make scrubbies?
I use old shower puffs. Usually you can find them at yard sales and thrift stores because people get the small ones free with something else.
I use plastic net bags from produce. Onions and garlic bags, mostly. I collect until I have several of the same color.
I like net scrubbies, but I had no luck in trying to crochet them. So I folded the netting in half then in half again and cut 3, 2 inch strips. I knotted the top and braided them to the bottom and made another knot. Then I coiled it and used a large needle and plastic, fine fishing line or plastic thread to catch all the coils, using a pliers when the needle would not go through easily. Now I have a nice thick scrubbie and am very pleased. Works good, too.

Does anyone have a pattern for the nylon scrubbies that are made of two crocheted circles and then they are crocheted together? A friend bought one and asked me if I knew how to make them and I told her I would try to find the answer on here. Thank you in advance.

I would like instructions for making nylon net scrubbies.
Type in "free crochet patterns" on the internet and see what you come up with. I used to be a member of a site that had free patterns, but I don't remember what it was called.
Also, any of the web sites for the yarn companies (Lion Brand; Red Heart; Caron; etc.) usually have free patterns. And as "thriftyvicki" stated, just type in "free crochet patterns". You'll be surprised at what you get.
Good luck on your adventure! Linda.
What size do you cut the strips to crochet pot scrubbers?
Donna from Millbury, OH
When I try to crochet a pot scrubber with nylon netting it comes out with a totally frayed look from the cut edges. The stitches are not distinct so it is difficult to find the hole for the next stitch. I am looking at a scrubber that I purchased and the stitches are very obvious and it has a very neat look. What am I not doing wrong?

Would it be possible to post a pattern for making scrubbies? Thanks!
Editor's Note: There are some instructions in the feedback of this post. Hope it is helpful
It's possible that you are cutting the strips in the wrong direction.
Here is a good tutorial:
I want to make some scrunches with mesh netting. Can you please tell me how to make them? I have mesh netting fabric, but don't know how to make them.
By Patty from Lizton, IN
My sister crochets the into round scrubbies.
What are scrunches? Do you mean pot scrubbers?
I have been making scrubbers for years, however, recently, JoAnn's has a very stiff material that says it's to use for scrubbers. I cut the 2 inch strips, however, I don't seem to be able to crochet with it. I am using a size K hook. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong? Help please!

I recently purchased a dish scrubber made of nylon netting and would like to make some. Anyone have any patterns they would like to share?
By Sue from St. Charles, MO
Purchase nylon netting that has a scratchy feel to it. Don't purchase the tulle because it's too soft. Cut into narrow strips and either sew the ends together or tie the ends into small knots. Roll into a ball like you would roll yarn.
Geometric Scrubbie Pattern:
Use a J crochet hook (Use smaller hook if you want a smaller scrubbie). Place a safety pin under the both loops of your first sc when beginning a round. This takes the guesswork out of "where" to join when you come to the end of a round.
Using nylon net, ch 4. Join with sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch1, 6 sc in ring- 6 sc. Join with sl st in first sc.
Round 2: Ch1, 2 sc in same sc as joining and in each sc around-12dc. Join.
Round 3: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining, 2 sc in next sc, *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around- 18 sc. Join.
Round 4: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining and in next sc, 2 sc in next sc; *sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around-24 sc. Join.
Round 5: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining and in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc; *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around- 30 sc. Join.
Round 6: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining and in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc; *sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around- 36 sc. Join.
Round 7: Ch1, sc in same sc as joining and in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc; *sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc; repeat from * around- 42 sc. Join. Finish off.
I just cut the nylon netting into squares and use it like a dishcloth. (07/09/2009)
Two sites to visit for a huge selection of "free patterns" are:
Look under kitchen or scrubbies. Also to order pre-cut spools of nylon netting to make scrubbies with - go to this site:

Stiff nylon netting scraps make great scrubbers for dishes, car bumpers/windows, bathroom porcelain, and removing paint with stripper. Their holes catch raised food/dirt/paint and remove it. Nylon net is perfectly paired with baking soda as an abrasive, as both will not leave scratches on surfaces you're cleaning.

I've been using netties I've made from nylon net to clean my dishes for many, many years. I hate using anything else. (01/27/2008)
I use the mesh bags that onions, garlic, fruit, etc. come in from the produce dept at the grocery store. After the bag is empty, cut off the metal clamp or the plastic end, then fold or scrunch up the bag and use to scrub dishes, pots & pans, sinks, anything that needs cleaning without causing scratches. Sometimes I save up several mesh bags, fold them up into a small pad and use a rubber band to hold it together on the top or end. These work just as well as the store bought scrubbies and I've recycled the mesh bags! (01/27/2008)
I use the mesh bags that go around frozen turkeys, from fruit, etc, too. I fold them into rectangles and crochet around the outside edges for a finished look (sometimes I double or triple them for puffier scrubbies). I wait until I have a bunch of bags, then do the crochet while watching TV. This way I make several at a time. They last a long time, so by the time I need more, I have quite a few bags waiting.

I have the pattern and would gladly share, but need to know where to buy the netting by the yard. (07/12/2008)
By cheryl kleppin
To Cheryl: In Oregon we can buy nylon netting at JoAnn Fabrics. I would think any large fabric store would have it, probably even Walmart. (07/12/2008)
I just did a google search for nylon net scrubbers and found a site for Heloise with directions for making them.
1) Cut 3 strips of net 6" x 72" (that's the width of the net)
2) Using a large needle and dental floss or heavy thread, run a basting stitch from one end to the other in the center.
3) Hold the needle and using the other hand gather the net tightly.
4) Wrap the floss/thread around the middle of the gathered net and make a knot.
5) Separate the layers and you have a scrubber! (07/12/2008)
I am wondering if anyone knows where you can buy the tulle on rolls to make the net scrubbers.
