She makes all my dishcloths out of old balls of wool. She uses cotton so we always keep our eyes open for odd balls in the charity shops or car boot sales. She likes to make them with cotton as that way they can be boiled.
They are fantastic for doing the dishes (the ones I can’t fit into the dishwasher!) And for wiping surpaces down. The pattern on them makes them chunky enough to stand up to constant scrubbing.
The best thing though is that I can boil them and they come up like new! I also chuck them in a weak bleach solution if they are looking a bit grubby.
They will last years and years so are worth considering if you have any odd balls of cotton hanging around. That is of course if you can knit… or your mother can!!
