    Just tried making a tamashi with socks made of Cotton Polyester Elastane. There is little fluff everywhere around me so I'm also a bit concerned about adding microplastic in the nearby water source. It seemed like a really good idea but...maybe it would be better with 100% cotton socks.

    I just buy the washable sponges. There are better ways to upcycle socks. You can turn them into dog ropes. There are so many ways to make them. You can even make sock yarn from the strips and braid it for a dog toy. You can donate them to animal shelters/dog rescues.

    Washing at 30 degrees is not a good idea. As you said, they’re full of bacteria. They should be washed at 60 degrees Celsius or higher.

    And you don`t have to throw away your sponge scrubbers every week-what rubbish! You can either wash or sterilize them if you`re worried about microbes. I will go over to something more `eco` when I`ve finished the pack I have now but meanwhile one lasts for -I dunno- but weeks!!
