When food sticks to the surface of your nonstick cookware you need a gentle, but tough tool to clean your pans without scratching the surface. Rough cleaning products scratch the nonstick surface, making them a bad choice for cleanup. A soft scrubbie will gently ease food off the cookware, while keeping the surface scratch-free. Purchase netting on a roll to crochet your own scrubbies to ensure they will be soft and gentle enough for your nonstick surfaces. Netting is available in various widths and strengths and some is rougher than others. Purchase netting on the rougher side that is one-half to 1 inch wide.
Things You'll Need
Roll of netting
Size K crochet hook
Unwind the netting from the roll it comes on, winding it into a ball as you go. Twist it as you're rolling it into a ball, so it becomes closer to the thickness of yarn.
Chain two stitches. Crochet 12 double crochet stitches into the first chain stitch you made. Crochet a slipstitch into the first double crochet to form a complete circle.
Chain three chain stitches, which will count as one double crochet. Crochet a double crochet into the same stitch as the chain three stitch. Crochet two double crochet stitches into each stitch in the circle. Crochet a slip stitch into the top of the beginning chain three with a slip stitch.
Crochet three chain stitches, then crochet one double crochet stitches into the next stitch. Crochet two double crochet into the next stitch, then alternate single crochet, then double crochet all the way around the circle. Crochet a slip stitch into the top of the beginning chain three to join the circle.
Crochet three chain stitches. Crochet a double crochet stitch into the same stitch as the chain stitch. Crochet a double crochet in the next two stitches, then two double crochet in the third stitch. Repeat the pattern of double crochet, double crochet, then two double crochet in the third stitch. Join the circle with a slipstitch.
Cut off the netting 1 inch from the scrubbie. Tie a knot after the last stitch, then work the ends through the scrubbie, weaving it in and out of the last few stitches so it won't be visible.
Don't pull the netting tightly, or crochet your stitches too tightly, or you could break the netting.
