Last month I blogged about the awesomeness of handmade crocheted washcloths for cleaning both yourself and your home. So this month I thought I’d share a diy project for making your own handmade crocheted washcloths.

Whether you choose to crochet washcloths for your facial cleansing routine, washing dishes, or getting that stubborn dirt out of your counter top grout, the tutorial for making handmade crocheted washcloths at Creative Jewish Mom will give you the knowledge you need for making your very first crocheted washcloth.
Once you’ve got the knack for making your own washcloths, you’re not going to want to stop. So once you’ve got a surplus, then it’s time to start gift giving!
Washcloth Packages
I really love the idea presented above for Washcloth Packages from knitgirl63. Simply tie your crocheted washcloth(s) to several bars of handmade soap with a ribbon and a simple faux flower. You can buy handmade soaps for this diy spa package or delve into making your own handmade soap. These make perfect gifts for the holidays, wedding favors for the bridesmaids and even housewarming gifts!
What’s your favorite use for crocheted washcloths?

  1. I LOVE homemade knitted and crocheted washcloths. I use them to do all of my dishes, to eliminate smelly sponges. The greatest part is you can toss them in the wash, so they are completely reusable. When they lose there pretty factor, you can move them to your rag bin.

    Our shop sells a few and more to come at:

  3. My 10 year old daughter, Madelyn, has been crocheting nubby wash cloths and selling them on our Etsy:
    We use them for face and bath washing but a lot of people use them for dishes or even as trivets because they are so thick.
