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.

What size do you cut the strips to crochet pot scrubbers?
Donna from Millbury, OH
Thanks but I found a website for the instructions and figured it out. I am cutting them 1 1/2". That'll work for me.
could you please give me the site where you found out how to crochet these at? thank you
How do you tie the pieces together on the nylon netting?
I tie my pieces together with square knots, because they are very strong, yet small enough they can rarely be seen.

Two inches wide.
There are several "how to" videos on YouTube for making nylon net scrubbies. Some of them are really good! Depends on how much you know about crocheting...
Does anyone know of a way to make a pot scourer or scrubber that will last? I'm tired of buying reversible sponges that I have to throw away after a week. I have seen some instructions for making one out of nylon yarn, but I've misplaced them. Thank you in anticipation!
Once on a cleaning tv show they said to use a crumpled piece of aluminum foil if you didn't have any brillo pads. I don't have any ideas about ones that wouldn't scratch though.
You can use the nylon net type bags that onions, potatoes, etc come in from the grocery store. Just tie them together to make a ball. Also I have used stiff type nylon net cut in 1 1/2 inch strips to crochet a square pad that I use for scouring pans as well as to scrub vegetables.
I don't have instructions for a scrub pad but to make your scrub pad last longer use a baking soda paste to get the stubborn baked on particles or grease off. Baking soda is abrasive enough to get stuff off without scratching or damaging.
We used to make kitchen wash cloths out of old yarn. Just get a crochet pattern. You can use almost any kind of yarn, but I like the cotton yarn best for doing my dishes.
They can scrub anything and they rinse nicely and dry quickly because of the loose weave. No smelly sponge in your sink!!!
Am writing in reference to the scrubbers. Go to either of these two sites and look under Kitchen Crochet or Kitchen Miscellaneous to find what you need:
Both are wonderful sites to find nearly anything you may be searching for IF you knit or crochet! Hope this helps.
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.

How do I find a pattern for a nylon scrubbie?
By Lisa J.
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!
