Crochet Kitchen Sponge

Sunday, 7 June 2020

It was rainy yesterday, and I've been having a hard time for the past few days. I have somehow run out of washcloths in the kitchen, so I decided to make some for myself. I have always found crochet to be very soothing and therapeutic. There's just something about the repetitive motions and the counting of the stitches that really soothes my soul. 

For the longest time, I was using the wand with the soap in the handle and the scrubby sponge at the end. I don't know about the rest of you, but I wasted SO much dish soap using those things! The soap ALWAYS leaked out no matter how I stored the thing. Not only do they waste soap, but they smell terrible! There just HAD to be a better way. I began my Google search for the perfect crocheted dishwashing apparatus.

During my search, I found a ton of great ideas, but this one stuck out from the rest. This crochet "sponge" is incredible! It feels great in my hand and holds the soapy suds quite well! I just tried it out, and only had to soap it up twice while readying the dishes for the dishwasher. Hello, soap savings! I also tried it out on the counters and stovetop. This crochet sponge did not get water everywhere like a regular sponge does. If you want to try your hand at making your own, you can find the pattern here.
