Recycle & Save With Homemade Pot Scrubbers

homemade pot scrubbersI cringe at the thought of those store bought non-abrasive plastic pot scrubbers. Why? Mainly because of all the muck that gets stuck in them and doesn’t want to rinse out. Gross! And then they get thrown in the trash, and I think of all the plastic pot scrubbers that probably get thrown in the trash each year….and then I think of how much money I’m wasting…even if it is only $0.50 a pop…still…it’s the principle people!

So I make my own and you can too! Here’s how….

Step 1: Save the netting from bags of produce, the stiff plastic kind, not the mesh kind.

    My grandma is a seamstress, so she always has scrap fabric around. She makes dishcloths out of lace scraps. She takes two pieces of lace, approximately washcloth size or a little smaller, and stitches them together. You wouldn’t think lace would make a good scrubber, but I guess it has just enough texture, and it’s not abrasive. These work amazingly well.
