For a quick project, I crocheted a square shaped kitchen scrubbie using 100% acrylic yarn from my yarn stock. I've made a couple of these scrubbies in the past , in different shapes and colors, and I find them very useful, eco-friendly, and gentle on my hands, when I do the dishes. BTW it's machine washable and dryer safe.
Of course I still use the ordinary detergents and a kitchen sponge when I clean greasy dishes or after I cut meat, poultry, fish, etc., but for non-greasy dishes, cups, and utensils, these kitchen scrubbies do the job just fine. These acrylic scrubbies work just like microfibers so in most cases, they make the dishes and glasses even shinier.
The size of this scrubbie is approximately 5 " x 5 ", or 12.5 cm x 12.5 cm. I did not follow any pattern to make this, I simply double crocheted several rows and then added a simple edging all around and a loop at the end. Yes, I know that white ribbon at the corner of the scrubbie wasn't really necessary, but I just wanted to add a little cuteness to our kitchen sink... ;)
I will hang this scrubbie like this at our sink.
Happy crocheting and happy dish washing! ...Well, hopefully ;)
