Experiments in dishwashing…

August 8, 2009 § Leave a comment

As a family now thinking about waste and sustainability, we are looking at the little things in our daily lives.  One of those things is our dish sponge.  J brought into my life the Dobie Pad – an awesome scrubber sponge wrapped in netting and gentle enough for non-stick pans.  I have learned to really love this sponge!

However, we are now rethinking our Dobie friend.  Given that he will continue on far longer than we, doomed to sit in a landfill, it is time for a new method.

Actually, it’s more an old method…the cotton dishcloth!  Not sure how it will go, but we’ll give it a try!  In this season, we are thinking more about honoring God in our big and small choices.


The pattern is the Ballband Dishcloth from Mason Dixon Knitting. I told J I wanted to knit 15 of them, and he said to start with two, and we’ll just see if we like doing dishes with them.
