I was wondering if anyone new how to make those pot scrubbers that are made out of nylon netting. It looks like they are really simple but I need directions. Thanks

RE: nylon scrubber

Straight from Heloise:
these nylon-net pompoms are just super to scrub things and so easy to make. Here's what you'll need to make one nylon-net scrubber:

1/2 yard of 72-inch-wide nylon net (found at fabric shops)


strong nylon thread or dental floss

large needle

First, cut the nylon net into three 6-inch-by-72-inch strips.

Second, lay the three strips on top of each other evenly, then take the needle threaded with nylon thread or dental floss and begin sewing down the middle (lengthwise) using long basting stitches.

Third, when done, hold the thread in one hand and pull back on the nylon net to form a ball.

Fourth, secure the ball by wrapping the ends of the thread around its center and knotting tightly, then trim off the thread ends.

Fifth, pull apart the layers of nylon net to fluff, and you now have a scrubbie that's ready to use! Heloise

RE: nylon scrubber

If you knit or crochet, you can take a 2" wide strip of nylon net 11 yards long, and knit or crochet a rectangle about three inches wide and fold in half, then slip stitch around it. It makes a great scrubbie.
