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.

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.
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?
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.

Do you ever get the pattern for the 2 sided flat scrubbies?
I am also looking for this.
To make a two sided pot scrubber, just crochet two face scrubbies and single crochet them together. You can find pattern here: noelwright.blogspot.com
Anyone in Thrifty Fun Land know how to use nylon net and a bleach bottle handle to make a scrubby? My rug hooking group is crocheting net scrubbies to use as a lint brush, and one of the ladies mentioned she used to have one with a handle.
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.
Here is an easy pattern with pics and video.
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:
You might try a larger hook to start the first one, till you get the hang of it. I found several patterns on the internet and a youtube video of how to do it. You might be cutting the nylon strip too small, or the netting is on the larger size which might fray on the edges more.
Does anyone know how to get rid of a chemical smell with the netting used to make crocheted scrubbies.
I'm looking for the pattern to make the scrounges.

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?
How do you cut the fabric? I bought 3 yds. Do I cut it across or up and down?
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!
How much nettings do you buy to make one?

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?
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.
