It seems like an oxymoron to include the word fun with anything that has to do with washing dishes but these crochet Scrubbies almost…….almost do just that!
Now I have never been accused of being a good housekeeper. I have no shame in making that statement. Some people are fantastic at keeping things tidy and organized. I’m not one of those people. Washing dishes is by far my least favorite of all household chores.
I have never had an automatic dishwasher. That sounds stupid when I think about it. I hate doing dishes so why on earth would I not want to get a machine that does it for me. It’s simple. The cost of buying and installing a dishwasher just feels like a ridiculous expense when washing dishes by hand is not difficult or (when done in a timely fashion) very time consuming.
I have a very small kitchen without much storage space so I also cannot afford to give up any cabinets to put in a machine that I will likely be the one that has to load and unload anyways.
Since I have accepted that dirty dishes and I will be enemies for the rest of my life the only thing I can do is to make the best of it.
Bright colorful Scrubbies might make me actually look forward to washing the dishes!!!
But they are cheerful to look at and super easy to make. I used Red Heart Scrubby yarn but you can use cotton. The Scrubby yarn was a bit fiddly to work with. The pattern is a free Red Heart Scrubby pattern that you can find the YouTube video here.
I like to find something positive in every situation. The awful terrible thing here is that I HATE doing dishes, but I LOVE to crochet. So I suppose if I have to say anything nice about dirty dishes it would be that it gave me an excuse to buy yarn and crochet something!! 😀
