Rinse and re-use Ridge Scrubby. 

We no longer use sponges. That’s right. Threw them all away because I am in love with the Scrubby Yarn by Red Heart Yarns. They have been so supportive and generous yet again and sent me some Scrubby yarn to try! The color is called green tea. You can find Scrubby yarn HERE

I am so happy with this yarn and the pattern I came up with. I made TWO with just one ball and some leftovers to spare. I also pitched all sponges forever and am using these scrubbies because I can just throw them in my washing machine for re-use! 


The cool thing is the pattern which is essentially a ridged pocket, leaves room for you to use it however you like!


Hands inside for some extra scrubby elbow grease scrubbing. 

Or


Slip a sponge inside for some sturdy scrubbing. You could also shove a bar of soap inside and turn it from a sink scrubby to a shower scrubby.

The scrubby yarn is very textured so remember to rely on your sense of touch as well as some stitch counters to keep your place. I’m including pictures of the rinse and re-use ridge scrubby in regular Red Heart Super Saver Yarn so you can use it as a guide for the ridge rows of the pattern.
