Nylon netting is a mildly abrasive material that can be used to effectively scrub things clean without scratching. Make your own nylon net scrubbers easily and inexpensively with just a needle and thread. Use homemade nylon scrubbers in a wide variety of cleaning applications, including body washing in the bath or shower and washing dishes. Nylon netting material comes on rolls, is available in a variety of colors, and can be found at fabric stores.
Cut three long strips of nylon netting measuring 6 inches by 72 inches for a smaller-size scrubber (good for dish washing) or 8 inches by 72 inches for a larger-size scrubber (good for the shower and bath).
Stack the three strips on top of one another.
Double-thread a needle with nylon thread.
Use the threaded needle to knot together one end of the stacked together strips. Use a single not placed at the center-point of that edge.
Use the threaded needle to sew down the middle of the three strips using a long stitch. Use approximately 1- to 1 1/2-inch long stitches. Once you get to the other end, reverse and create another stitch line going the other direction.
Pinch the knotted end in your fingers and pull on the needle and thread in order to contract and bunch together the nylon netting.
Wrap the thread a few times around the center of the bunch and secure it with a knot. Cut off the excess thread. For hanging on a shower rack, a looped piece of soft rope can also be tied around the center.
Fluff up the nylon netting to create a round shape.
