Eco friendly kitchen scrubber

I hear a lot of buzz about recycling around earth day, but then the buzz go away...until the next year around earth day.
I have to say, I am always in a recycling mode, that being reusing, repurposing and recycle.
And this is NOT just for the sake of saving money. 

My husband always tells me that I am resourceful, and I do take that as a compliment, because being resourceful means making the most with what you got...which it happens to be my motto in life.
So today I am going to show
you and easy way to reuse produce nets.
I promise you these are very safe to use on pots and pans.
I tried to take a lot of pictures of the process.
I used a total of 3 nets.

Cut the top and bottom of the net.

 Fold 2 of the nets and insert in the 3rd one.

 and roll the net on itself.

Make a knot and 
enjoy your new scrubber.

Stay Frugal,

Great recycling Daniela!

I made something similar but crocheted around the edge. I also made a soap saver from produce nets. Crocheted around the top and threaded a tie through...

You are BRILLIANT. Your husband is right, you are resourceful. I am really impressed, like in awe. What a great idea.

Pretty clever! Onions are the ones I usually get in this type of bag. I'm going to save it next time!

Frugal and creative you are! We all get produce bags, but how many think to use them like this?
I used some flannel pjs the pup decided to chew up (had a fascination/need to destroy ties), cut them up and use as dry Swiffer mop covers. We use old towels to clean off dogs feet when they come in muddy (12 of them!), I'm going to use someone else's idea to make 2-sided non-paper towels with flannel & terry as gifts, but coming up with fresh ideas, I turn to fellow bloggers for that :-).

I had my blog hacked and my google account, I had to start a new one, right from the ground up, I have joined as a follower again, I hope you might visit me again,

This is a great idea! I gave up paper towels almost a year ago and really don't miss them. However I never knew how to make these until now!

Very frugal idea! I have thought to make a scrubby with them but never tried to make it work! You've done it and it looks simple enough to make it worthwhile to do.

I knew there had to be a use for these things! And now you've just shown me the perfect "craft." Thanks. This will really come in handy. Especially for those cast iron pots!
