I made these for my niece/goddaughter who is moving out for the first time next month.
I used the cheaper Supersaver yarn from Walmart- its stiffer and a bit scratchy- and the color won't bleach out.
I crocheted them using double stitch.
These are great for scrubbing dishes, counters, bath tubs, shower stalls, etc. The texture of the yarn is perfect for this, and the type of yarn I used won't bleach out, so these can be washed with bleach to disinfect them and are reusable for a LONG time. :)
