Making a Crochet Pot Scrubber

Buy 100% polyester yarn or use your acrylic yarn scraps. You will be making an enclosed "pillow case" out of the polyester yarn. Start by crocheting a chain that's about 3 inches long. Next, single crochet in the back side of your chain then continue around the other side of the same chain. Keep crocheting all the way around to your starting point and don't stop. You are working "in the round", in a spiral fashion.

When you've crocheted a rectangle that resembles a tiny pillow case, insert several of your used slivers of soap and slip them into this little pouch you've made. Finish it up by crocheting the top closed then crochet on a short loop for hanging it up to dry or crochet a longer chain several feet long to hang it up in the shower.

NOTE: Polyester yarn is great for exfoliating your body or scrubbing pots and pans while cotton yarn is soft and more like a wash cloth but it takes a long time to dry. This can also be made with thin hemp rope or nylon rope from the hardware store! You can also crochet this around a new bar of soap if you don't have any tiny silvers of soap saved up.

I crocheted a pot scrubber. I did not like the yarn I had, so I made this. It turned out so pretty, I almost didn't use it with the dishes at all.

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:
http://www.crochetpatterncentral...
http://www.knittingpatterncentral...
Both are wonderful sites to find nearly anything you may be searching for IF you knit or crochet! Hope this helps.

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.

Try:
www.allfreecrochet.com
www.bestfreecrochet.com
www.crochetnmore.com
www.favecrafts.com
www.crochetmemories.com

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.

There are so many cool crafts supplies out there anymore. I recently wanted to make my cousin a "scrubby" and found the perfect yarn.

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.

I bought a pot scrubber that was made from yarn and maybe nylon net. It is small, just right to hold in your hand. Does anyone have instructions as to how to make these pot scrubbers?
