dish scrubbies as the one we have sort of exploded. It's crocheted out of mesh, and at some point it ripped and now has a giant hole on one side. After a week of using a scrubby that was falling apart I thought it was time for some new ones.
These are knit from acrylic yarn as I've heard it scrubs better than cotton. These can be put through the top rack of the dishwasher (spear it so it doesn't move and get caught in the drain!) or can be washed with other kitchen towels. I had two of the old dish scrubby, and the second one was for washing the car. It worked great to scrub bugs off the front of the car.
