Do Crochet Washcloths Really Work?

You might be wondering if crochet washcloths are really useful and hold up well to a dirty pot in the sink or stuck on food. I’m here to tell you that if you use the right yarn, the answer is yes!

I use my crochet washcloths in the kitchen mostly. They are used to wash dishes, wipe counters, and clean up spills. They get washed in the washing machine and dried in the dryer. And they look good as new after all that!

When choosing a yarn for your crochet washcloth you want to go with a 100% cotton yarn. If the pattern calls for worsted weight, I highly recommend Dishie yarn from WeCrochet.

Dishie is both durable and absorbent, making it perfect for dish cloths…hence the name! It is machine washable and dryable. It comes in a huge variety of colors, perfect for matching the color scheme in your kitchen or bathroom!

One skein of Dishie is 190 yards, so you can get one oversized (10″ x 10″) washcloth out of one skein, sometimes two!

So yes, crochet washcloths really do work, but you need a good 100% cotton yarn and a great textured stitch to get the most out of it.
