The Stinky Sponge Solution

I admit it. My kitchen sponges stink. And then, when I use them, my hands stink. I know it's gross but I believe I may have found the solution.

MD Warshcloth- Done

A cotton warshrag from Mason Dixon Knitting.
Maybe with a big stack of these I can get rid of my sponges once and for all.

MD Warshcloth- Close Up

I got a bug in my butt about making these this week. And Joanne's had large balls of Sugar and Cream for $1.79. I bought 5 super bright colors- pink, yellow, blue, orange, and green. Over the next few days I'm going to try to crank out a few more. Next up- pink and orange.

It's Spring and I need a little color in my life!

My very fav dishcloth pattern! I never get tired of making those things. They make the best dishcloths too, so thick and squishy.

I love dishcloths. Dishcloths are my mindless knitting. I toss them in a bag and give them to family and friends. :~)

Those are so much fun to make! And you're not the only one with the mildew problem. I hate that! You can put the sponges in your dishwasher every once in a while to cleam them up. Works fine!

That is so cute! For some reason, I've had cotton dishcloths on my mind the past couple of weeks. Hmmm...may have to swing by Joann's on the way home from work tomorrow...

P.S. I like how you wrote it as "warshrag". That's it would sound with a smooth Southern accent.. ;)

I haven't yet been able to keep any MDK warshrags that I've knit--I keep giving them away because they make such fun, easy gifts--especially wrapped around a bar of hand-made soap!

I love my Warshrags. They can get a bit whiffy, too, but my mom taught me this trick years ago: just pop them into the microwave when they're good and moist and set them on high for 2 min. I try to do it every evening after supper to prevent whiffiness.

Love the bright colours. Around here I can only get a pretty bland assortment of dishcloth cotton.

oh man. THANK GOD you reminded me to start my DISCLOTH BLITZ 2007. i do this every year for years now. I give a stack to nat's mom and 95 yr old grandmother, and a stock to my mom for mother's day. At that time they are to throw out their old ones.
My sister is soon to follow in june for her b-day and she usually gets a stack too. So usually during april i do my blitz to make like 20+ of these suckers.

Those are cute. I'm about to board the dishcloth train myself, though I'm way late..
