Green Recycled Scrubbies

Posted on September 28, 2015

Here are some 4 inch wide diagonal scrubbbies I crocheted using recycled green produce nets. These are soft plastic nets that I purchase lettuce in at my local grocery store. Here is the diagonal crocheted scrubbie pattern that I use to make the scrubbers. It only takes 3-4 plastic nets to crochet each scrubber along with about 1/2 ounce of cotton yarn.

The nice thing about these little scrubbers is that they are sturdy enough to scour your pans and soft enough not to scratch non-stick surface pans. Plus it is a wonderful way to recycle the netting and repurpose them into something useful.

I wanted to crochet a green dishcloth to match my little recycled scrubbers so I tried out a new crocheted square pattern called the Fan Box. I used sugar n creme aloe vera green cotton to crochet the square following the pattern exactly. Using an I crochet hook, my dishcloth came out 7 inches wide.

Here is one more dishcloth I crocheted to go along with my recycled diagonal scrubber. This dishcloth pattern is one of my creations that I call Open Mesh Magic. The pattern is free and just click on this link for the crochet pattern directions Open Mesh Magic Dishcloth Pattern.

So if you are looking to craft some nice recycled dish scrubbers, I hope you will check out my idea and repurpose those plastic produce nets into a new and useful scrubber.
