They're awesome! I may have to go that route, I go through sponges like crazy, and, I don't like the fact the sponges aren't "scrubby" lol.

I ordered 4 white, 1 emerald, 1 red, 1 periwinkle, 1 maize,
2 lime, 1 cotillion blue and 1 butter last night!

Her daugther has a website, too, it's new...and her daughter Jill carries colors that momma (Linda) doesn't. Linda has a link to her daugther's website. She sent me an email asking me to promote her daughter's website!

It's called the Tulle Shed! Cute! Same prices!

I included a note in Jill's order, and asked if she had any white, because I didn't see any white here or at her mom's site.
I guess she called mom right away, and mom emailed me that she did in fact have white. She gave me a link, and lo&behold, I had been looking on the wrong page! She had oodles of colors that I hadn't seen before. Doh.

I sold those 7 SCRUBBIES today. $2.50 each.

BTW, as you know...the netting is 3" wide and you don't need that full width. My DH cuts it in half with Japanese fine tooth finishing saw. I've heard that some folks saw it in half with an electric knife.

Wow! $2.50 each! And here I've been giving them away!

I've been making them in sets of three (same color netting, different cotton or vice versa), and wrapping them up with a nice bottle of dishwashing liquid, for holiday or hostess gifts.

A set like that could probably sell for about $12. I use wine bottle gift bags and tie the scrubbies in a little bundle with ribbon or raffia.

btw - my electric carving knife works really well for cutting the spool into thirds. Makes more scrubbies per spool and the 1" strips seem to work really well, the only other difference is that I use a US9 or 10.

I have neither an electric knife nor a fine saw. So, I have been my DS's kiddie scissors. I just cut away while watching/listening to the TV. I cut until I think it's enough, then cut some more.
When I knit, if the netting is running short, I knot on a new strip and knit the ends into the piece. When I'm done, I give the scrubbie a good tug in all directions and trim any stray ends.
So far, from one 25-yard, 6-inch wide roll of nylon tulle netting (cut 4 times into 1 1/2 widths), I've made 8 scrubbies. Not bad for $1.00
And I've had the Sugar n' Cream in the stash (to make wash cloths). But this is much more fun!

Hey there! I was cooking dinner tonight, meat and baked potatoes...and I remembered another thing I use a SCRUBBIE for! You guessed it!

I keep a special SCRUBBIE set aside for washing the dirt and eyes off of baker spuds, and also, for taking the hairy things off of fresh long carrots!

What's so nice is that the scrubbie fits my entire palm and I wrap my scrubbie-ized hand around the spud and twist and shout!



It really does a fantastic job! Quick, too.

You should see all the dirt in the scrubbie after the twist and shout routine!

Oh I crack myself up.

Sugar and Cream cotton???
I LOVE how these scrubbies look. I have a question about the Sugar -n- Cream cotton. Where do you buy the cones of that? Do they sell the cones at places like A C Moore and Michaels??
Would I be able to use any type of 100% cotton yarn? Thanks again for all your experiments/photos!! I can't wait to get started!

I get mine at Joanne's...with a 40% off coupon (I wait till I have one from either HL or Joanne's), it's usually about $10.00. HL has it too.
