Crochet Dish Clothes or Face washers!
Like most people when I heard of a crocheted dishcloth made from cotton, I was sceptical!! But after all the requests and constant reminders, I finally I crocheted one for myself and started using it in my kitchen. Not only does it look good, it cleans with a shine and gets the grime off everything! Wow I wish I had of known years of go, I would of saved a lot of money from purchasing dish clothes that I used to throw out each week. Now I just soak mine in bleach or simply throw in the washing machine! Best idea yet! I love my crochet dish clothes. You can choose any pattern and colours you like, below is a few ideas to get started.
