These cute, washable dish scrubbies provide an economical alternative to dirty dish sponges. Double-thick and crocheted out of soft but sturdy 100% cotton yarn, when these scrubbies get dirty, simply throw them in the wash to make them like new again! Think of them as a cross between a dish sponge and a dish cloth: the best of both worlds, really.

I came up with the idea for these dish scrubbies one day when my tired old sponge became too dirty and ripped to be of much use anymore. The thought of purchasing yet another pack of sponges was not appealing, because they would soon be thrown in the trash as well. I realized that maybe I could use my crochet skills to create an alternative to the old sponge. I crocheted my first scrubbie sponge that day and used it over and over again. I loved how the scrubbie, unlike my other sponges, was soft, sturdy, and didn’t easily rip. Besides that, it was so cute to set out next to my sink!

It wasn’t until much later that I found out that handmade dish sponges are a popular trend in Japan. They call them “Tawashis,” and they are often made from acrylic yarn.

Unlike most Tawashis, my dish scrubbies are made of 100% cotton yarn. Not only is cotton yarn softer and sturdier, but it machine washes and dries beautifully. It also comes in a vast array of vibrant colors.

Each scrubbie measures approximately 4.75" x 3.25" x 0.5"

Dish scrubbies make an excellent gift for a wedding shower or as a Christmas gift for coworkers, teachers, or friends. Pair them with a set of Double-thick Pot Holders and a Grocery Bag Holder to make any kitchen complete!

"My house has been sponge free for almost a month because of your amazing scrubbies. Thank you for helping to bring my house one step closer to becoming waste free." -Amanda S.


"I use my dish scrubbies and potholder daily. Whenever I try to use another potholder I always end up burning my hands, but I have never had that issue with the double thick crochet pattern of your potholders. Guess I should learn my lesson." -Andrea S.


"I love my dish scrubbies! They are tough enough to clean away bits of food, but they are gentle at the same time so I don't have to worry about them scratching my Teflon pots and pans. I've even used one to clean my kitchen sink and it worked great! My favorite thing about the scrubbies is that they can be washed and used over and over again." -Erin W.
