Recycle Your Plastic Bags into a Dish Scrubbercomments (7) September 15th, 2008
Next time you're working up some cotton dish cloths, try adding a bit of plastic bag to the center. That's right—crochet the center with plarn (plastic bag yarn) and you'll add a little bit of scrubbing power in an earth-friendly way. Cindy of MyRecycledBags.com has a great, free pattern for the dish cloths right here. You can even toss them in the washer on the gentle cycle—just be sure to hang them to dry or they'll melt. And she recently added a new star-shaped dish cloth pattern, too. I love that she uses colored bags and truly incorporates them into the design.
