When you finally decide to stop using and buying paper towels, you would naturally just acquire more dishcloths and recycle old cotton shirts for clean-ups, right? Indeed I did, but then also discovered how wonderful crocheted dishcloths are, and so decided to just make them myself. My daughter and I are hooked! They are so soft, and fun to use, and neither one of us is willing to go back to the old dependable dishcloths for wiping countertops and the kitchen table. So what’s a domestic artist to do? Just make more of them.
I then tried one out for washing the dishes, and my- am I a convert. They are so luxurious, and they clean very well. Good riddance sponges!
The crocheted dishcloths were still too big for my tiny hands for washing dishes, so I set to make smaller ones from leftover yarns.
What do you think? Give it a try, your dishes (and I) will thank you.
