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.

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 tie my pieces together with square knots, because they are very strong, yet small enough they can rarely be seen.

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 can't find directions or photos anywhere on line. She described it as a handle with a nylon net (tulle) pom pom on the end. Thanks in advance!

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.

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?

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. I have found crocheting with cotton yarn helps to keep the nylon from fraying too. I used red netting and tan cotton yarn. Hope this helps.

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 Hulsey from St. Charles, MO

Answers:

Use Nylon Netting For Scrubbers

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.

G5

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.

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)

By Millie

Use Nylon Netting For Scrubbers

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)

By Sherry

Use Nylon Netting For Scrubbers

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.

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)

By Judi

Use Nylon Netting For Scrubbers

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)
