Use Sugar and Cream or Peaches and cream; they're inexpensive cotton and what almost everybody uses.

Sugar/peaches and cream it is. Now to decide for some "horrid" colors. Thank you!

Ahh they do not have any ugly mother in law colors, lol.

If you mix a strand of baby weight acrylic in with the cotton, knitting two strands as one, it will add scrubbing capability to the cotton.

Or you could do two or three rows of cotton and a row of acrylic. Really does make a difference!
