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.
