There are many ways to make these type of scrubbers with netting material. I've read through a lot of patterns and they all seem nice but so complicated. I like easy patterns! This is how I do it:
1 yard netting (or more)
Size K crochet hook
Here's the pattern:
It takes 7 strips to make one scrubber.
First Strip- Chain 3. Then, 5 sc in the third chain from the hook (which will be the first chain). Then, continue around in spiral fashion by putting 2 single crochets in each chain. Continue the same with the second strip.
Next four strips, one sc around.
Last strip, one sc in every other chain. If when you go around it doesn…
A friend of mine showed me some rugs she had woven with a loom and recycled t-shirts. I loved the idea, but don't have room to use a loom in the camper so I thought I'd crochet one instead. I had originally hoped to knit one but found my hands aching too much after a few rows.
Here's what you need:
Size Q crochet hook
7-10 shirts depending on size. (might need more depending on size)
Pattern of choice or this leaflet. (which is what I used)
A good pair of fabric cutting scissors
First, you need to prepare your material into "yarn". You do this by cutting your shirts into strips. I found several methods for cutting t-shirts and joining the ends. Which I will talk about here. But, do also check out this method, which makes one continuous strip of material.

Almost a year ago, I mentioned drinking clove tea and how I got immediate results with a cup of warm clove tea. I don't know that I've ever mentioned how I make a cup, so here's how.
You'll need whole cloves.
You take ONLY 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of the clove buds and simmer them in a cup of water for about 10 minutes in a covered pot. It won't look really dark, but that's normal. The cover on the pot is to protect the good oils from evaporating more than necessary. You can even save the clove buds for another cup of tea. They're pretty potent little things! You can sweeten the tea with a little honey, vanilla or milk if you want. But if you're sick with a cold the last thing you want is to drink some milk or dairy products. I found it only creates more mucus to have to deal with.
If you simmer it for longer than 10 minutes, it will be pretty …
