Instructions for Making Nylon Net Scrubbies

Net shower scrubbies are relaxing bath and shower tools and many people like using them to get a good lather. Scrubbies range in size from hand-sized to oversized and come in a large choice of colors. After a time, these scrubbing tools take a beating and may fall apart. You can make your own scrubbers with some nylon netting and a few other supplies. Make a bunch to give as handmade gifts to friends and families during special occasions.

Things You'll Need

  • Nylon netting

  • Scissors

  • Dental floss

  • Wide needle

Step 1

Cut the netting into three sections of 6-inch wide strips of netting. Each strip should measure 72 inches long. Stack the strips on top of one another.

Step 2

Thread a needle with dental floss.

Step 3

Make a series of basting stitches starting at the bottom center of the net and working upward. Make a basting stitch by pushing up from under the fabric. Pull up on the thread and hold on to the bottom of the thread to keep it from slipping through.

Step 4

Skip about 1 inch of fabric then push the needle through the fabric. Continue to make the stitch until you have stitched the entire netting.

Step 5

Bunch up the fabric by holding the thread and easing the material back with your hand.

Step 6

Wrap the thread a few times around the center of the netting. Make a knot and clip away the excess thread. Move the net around with your fingers to make a ball.
