A pot scrubber can be easily made from a mesh vegetable bag.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes
I used a mesh bag that melons come in from Costco.

Once upon a time, I had no scrubber for my pots and skillets, so I put together a single crochet stitch square. I covered it with some old onion netting and tied it together with a small length of yarn and knotted it.
It actually works better than the brand I have been been using. The great thing is it is recycling and keeping the items from a landfill at least for a while.
I have also found potato netting makes a good scrubber. aluminum balled up foil makes a good scrubber for metal things, but not for things that need a nylon scrubber only. I didn't have any foil at the time so that is why I made my own out of the onion netting and the crochet square.
