    Huh. I like to knit my dishrags personally, but I love the idea of using these for face scrubbies. I'm thinking this'll take up less room, too.

    Too pretty to clean dishes with! Some people knit strips of nylon netting into dish scrubbers, but I'd think that would be really hard on the hands.
