I've used the old style real Phyntex (SP) you know the kind our grandmother made slippers out of. It never wears out.
I think I bought some at Zeller's

Hope that helps........

A friend of mine makes scrubbies. She uses the netting from the fabric store cut in strips. I cut some and used my rotary cutter with my long ruler. It was really fast.
I saw somewhere (not really sure where) that to make a scrubbie dishcloth, use a strand of cotton and a stip of netting. I haven't tried it, but it sounded like it would work.

Quickie update: knitting with fishing line works GREAT for making a scrubbie!

I like your idea of adding a strand of cotton... fishing line and cotton = awesome, soap-retaining scrubbie action.

Thanks for the great thread, and last-minute gift ideas, ArtLady! I've been wanting something to give my cotton dishcloths a bit more scrubbing power. This sounds perfect. I just ordered some of those 3" spools.

FYI - for anyone who is planning on ordering, she is closed from mid-December through the end of January, so if you don't get your order in soon, it won't ship until February!!!!

I stopped in a Michaels Crafts this afternoon. Naturally I went to the yarn / needles craft section. As I walked around I passed the Plastic Canvas Yarn section.There was Needloft Yarn that seems like it will work for scrubbies.

I received my order of 3" netting spools yesterday and knitted up a little scrubbie with one strand of dishcloth cotton and a 1" strip of the netting, using my electric carving knife to cut the spool into thirds.

As a test, I knitted a mini version of Grandma's favorite dishcloth pattern. It looks great and works even better. The cotton helps hold the dish soap and the netting adds pretty terrific scrubbing power.

Off to knit up a dozen or so of these for us, and for gifts.

Hi!

I received the spools of nylon net I ordered from this site and since I believe in giving credit where it's due, I had to let you all know how impressed I was with this company.

In the package I got a lovely thank you card from Linda and even a hand-written thank you and smiley face on the invoice. Also in the package was a neatly wrapped little gift with a thank you sticker that contained a completed scrubbie made in crochet with the nylon net. It's adorable and along with it came a very well-written pattern! There were also business cards from various sites that folks might find of interest.

This lady really knows her stuff when dealing with customers! Everything showed a great deal of respect and affection for those of us who just love making things! I would certainly recommend her as a great source if you need any of her products.

Just thought I'd pass this along!
