Scrub a Dub Dub

 I just spent an entire day petting the most luxurious yarn you can buy at the MDSW but what is floating my boat at the moment is.....

Scrubby! The Mister and I have an area of contention over what to use to do the dishes. He likes those foam blocks covered in plastic you get at Walmart. I hate them. They never dry out. I can practically hear the bacteria growing inside them.

I picked this up on sale a long time ago and on a whim decided to give it a try and...I LOVE it. It does a great job on the dishes and dries faster than a plain old cotton dishcloth. I think The Mister likes it too but he won't admit it.

In spite of it's tangled mess appearance it's fairly easy to knit with as long as you don't do anything fancy. Now I need to get more. Lots more.


  1. You like it? I tried crocheting a scrubbie with it and it hurt my hands. Maybe, as it so often is, knitting would be different. Maybe, just maybe, I should try again sometime.

  2. I may have to give some of that a try. Looks interesting? Is it hard on your hands while you are knitting it?

    1. This is the cotton version not the polyester one. It's not too bad.

  3. Hmmm, I looked at that yarn at Joann's or some place, but it looked too rough to me to enjoy knitting. I may have to give it a try.

  4. Yes, I liked this version of the Scrubby, too. Makes a miserable job a little easier!

  5. OMG!!! Dave and I have almost the exact same argument! He like's the cheap sponges with the scrubby on one side. They never clean well (especially plastic) and it really annoys me when he uses them to wipe the counter because they just leave a swamp of germy water behind!
    I'm going to have to see if I can find some of that yarn!

  6. I've seen the yarn but haven't knit with it yet. Perhaps, I need to give it a try.

    I hate those sponges encased in plastic mesh!

  7. I prefer my cloths because they go in the washing machine and sponges dont. Glad you found a fun yarn to work up!

  8. I'm glad to hear that you like this yarn and am going to try some out! I just finished a few dishcloths for my daughter - she might like this!

  9. I haven't seen that yarn before. Looks interesting. Will have to give it a try.
