I reserve one special white scrubbie to wash the dirt of my potatoes before baking! Works like a charm! And WOW, it takes off a lot of dirt! For carrots too, those stringy thingies.

Way to go Dangles.

I think it's time for me to knit a couple more. I gave one of mine to a freind that doesn't have a dishwasher. She was very impressed

Thanks Dollyce adn luvmykid28, the dishes said rub a dub dub i await you in the sink!! I was not sure what was in the tulle so i had it boiling water for 2 minutes prior to use. The tulle was not too bad to knit with. I just thought of it as exfoliating my hands as I knit, haha.

Now a colour coded system?? Dollyce, I really like your veggie cleaner idea. Now to knit some for my folks and neighbour.

Okay, I have officially joined in this KAL... I have had a problem finding the nylon though so I bought some plastic canvas yarn I think it is. kind of has a scrubbie feel to it and I made one. It is a gift though so I couldn't try it out. I will make myself one and see how well it works it feels like those spongies things that you buy at the store for scrubbing. So, I am hoping that it works well. I will post pics later as I haven't taken them just yet.

Artlady I think you have such wonderfull ideas and now I can make even more of these for people that I know would use them on the things other than dishes. Thanks so much.

Remember those vinyl (?) cutting boards that OPRAH had on her FAVORITE THINGS a couple years ago? They were a set of 4: green for cutting veggies & fruit; pink for cutting up red meats; yellow for cutting poultry; and blue for cutting up seafood. This color coding prevents cross-contamination. I still use them. They are dishwasher safe, and I still spritz them with Clorox Cleanup before washing, but NEVER cut veggies for your salads on the same cutting board you cut up meats or fish.

Well, I was thinking...this same principle could apply to our scrubbies as gifts: green netting for washing fruits and veggies; blue netting for doing dishes; and yellow for the bathroom tub; white for the stove and microwave.

Or something like that. I use my white scrubbie for the potato and carrot skins. No cross contamination.

Anyhoo, I think it would be cool to give a set of 3 color-coded scrubbies to someone, colored for different uses!

Artlady, I just thinking along the exact same lines. Great minds think alike

This means another trip across the border to Michaels then... I picked up 1-white and 1-ivory 25ydx6" rolls...up here they cost a whopping 6.99 per roll. Where as across the border it's 2.99 :o

If only there is another way to get them ... and actual nylon netting.
