I originally posted this in the Sock forum by mistake. Sorry. So here goes again. Hope, I didn't mess things up any. I've never made dishclothes before but from what I've seen they sure look fun. I was just wondering when your through with them, do you actually use them as such? If not, (besides giving them away) what do you like to do with them? I just can't do that to a nice dishcloth that I made, especially in my kitchen. Laughing

I use my dishcloths for washing dishes, wiping up the kitchen and appliances....everything I used to use a sponge for. These cotton cloths are so much more sanitary. They are quick knits and before you know it you will have a drawer full.

Some of mine have been religated to the dust rag pile now and do they polish furniture well.

Use them!
Very Happy

Yes Nancy, it's hard to believe that after the work you put into it that you'd end up using them. Once you use, you will never want to use anything else. (except my DH won't use).

Unlike your DH, mine is a big fan! I love my dishcloths.

I think that's a mum thing - mine is exactly the same!

Not my mum! She uses every single one of them (except the one with the Halloween design) and let's me know when they are wearing thin and destined for the rag pile. (Mum was my knitting teacher but due to degenerative arthritis, she can no longer knit)

I use them in the kitchen for wiping up everything. They are so soft and thick. Then just toss them in the machine. I'm making a bunch now and anytime anyone comes over and sees them, they comment, then I hand them one. If they like it, which they always do, I give them more. My kids use them for my grandchildren in the bath and love them. Once you use them, there's no going back Very Happy .

I use mine for my kids' baths too. And for my baby's facecloth in the kitchen after meals. They work so much better than terrycloth!

Thank you everyone for your input. Looks like I'll be making me some dish cloths and face cloths for awhile. (once I finish my grandaughters scarf) You've even managed to convince me to actually use them. Smile At least now, I'm not so worried about using them.

I also use mine and I give as gifts.
I think that they clean the dishes better for some reason. Pinkroses2
