Giveaway of the Week, July 13-19 Is Now CLOSED!

The winner will be notified ASAP!

Antibacterial Tawashi Scrubbie

Donated by: Peanut and Tommy (

This is a crocheted loop scrubbie for cleaning all around your home. This cute little scrubbie is made with bright pink and yellow Cafe Kitchen yarn by Daruma. It measures 4.25" (11cm) across. This scrubbie is two sided--there are fluffy loops crocheted into each side to help you clean and shine all around the house.

Cafe Kitchen is a fluffy, 100% acrylic yarn that has been blended with positive silver ions, which makes it more resistant to mildew and bacteria than regular acrylic yarn. The acrylic yarn holds it's shape well and scrubs like a breeze.

The Japanese call these scrubbies "Magic Scrubbers." They use them to clean without detergent in the kitchen and bath.
