DIY Dish Scrubber

Last week Kelly shared a great tip about making a DIY Homemade Dish Scrubber sponge.   Well I did it!!  And I love the scrubber!    Here are my picture for the DIY Dish Scrubber and how I made it.

All items are re-purposed and this will save you money since you won’t have to add a dish scrubber to the things necessary to buy.

DIY Dish Scrubber Items

  • Start with a Mesh bag from onions, oranges etc.
  • 1 large rubber band (recycled from your multiple newspapers, right!)


I started out with a mesh bag from my onions.  It was a 16″ x 12″ bag.

Make into a bow-tie shape.  Using the rubber band around the middle,  secure it.

Fluff it open to form a ball!  And that’s it, now start doing the dishes.  🙂

Are you willing to try and make this DIY Dish Scrubber?
