Make Your Own Mesh Dish Scrubber

These DIY mesh dish scrubbers are so easy to make, I figured all of y'all out there do the same thing with your old popsicle or onion bags. But when I posted a quick picture of one I made on Facebook, it got shared several times and someone asked how I made it.

So here's the scoop.

  1. And to think, I’ve been BUYING tulle on a spool (like for wedding decorations) and knitting little 3×3 squares to scrub dishes… My mom always had red ones, so we call it a “red net scratcher” regardless of the color. :)

  2. I usually crochet mine. Recently, I’ve been crocheting a dishcloth like side and a scrubber side for a sort of homemade dish sponge that can be washed. These look super easy, though. Good project for my daughters. Thanks for the tutorial!

  3. Thank you, thank you! I couldn’t bear to throw out those orange/onion bags, but I didn’t have a clue what I was going to do with them.
    GREAT idea!

  4. Yep…I have made them. Recently the onions where I shop are in plastic bags. :( practically useless. I use them as trash bags for my van…that fill up in a day.

  5. ohmygosh this is brilliant!
