17 Dish Scrubbies To Make

Print Print    Email This Tip Email

Scrubbies are nice to use and they’re simple to make too! These are handy in the kitchen for washing dishes and gentle enough to use on appliances and counter tops. Also tuck a few into your cleaning bucket since they wipe away fingerprints and scuffs found around the house (fine to use on painted walls). I love making these (they’re so quick & easy!) and am always looking for new patterns to try. Consider adding this to your handmade gift list for project ideas, lots of people love receiving them!

*All of these are crochet unless otherwise noted

Rosebud: Lots of colorful examples of how you can make these. Based on this page.

Loom/Spool Knit: These are really scratchy but because the crino is 100% nylon it won’t scratch Teflon or even a ceran top stove. Washer & dryer friendly.

Tawashi: Recommends using Red Heart Eco-Cotton Blend, which is made out of recycled T-shirt remnants or try acrylic (you want something “scratchy” for more power).

Aloo: Made with Aloo yarn but you can opt for thin hemp or linen yarn (for a body/bath) or cotton and acrylic (household).

With Tulle: One side is smoother while the other side has ridges (worked in the back loop). You’ll need 6″ wide tulle (cut in half for width of 3″) and a size I hook.

Dots: Worked in worsted weight cotton yarn in two different colors.

    I’ve only been crocheting about a year and I’m “hooked”. As soon as I finish up this afghan I am going to have to try one of these scrubbies. Thanks for sharing. Take Care :)

  2. Annabelle says:

    Vicki is so right – I’ve been crocheting for a while now and can’t put down my hook!

    Thanks for the scrubby patterns.

  3. Michelle says:

    I’ve been making something similar to the Aloo Scrubbie but I only go as far as the 3rd round. I make 2 identical ones then crochet them together around the edges then, with yarn still attached, I chain 12 and make a loop and attach it to the edge so I can hang it up to dry on a nail or hook by the kitchen sink. It eliminates having to use a needle for anything. (I also loosely tie them together on the inside – strings hanging from start-off – before I crochet the 2 together.)

  4. Cody says:

    The netting scrubbies are the reason I taught myself to crochet, I love them!!

  5. Mable says:
