    That is gross. The material is not meant to clean nor scrub,& will hide bacteria & viruses in the knots & folds.

    No. But if you put your hand into the thick cotton socks they make great dusters.

    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!!

    Oh boy, what an invention, but many normal people re-use rags since ever, don't even need an imported name for it, and as I see it, it's not too practical, cos' when you leave the rag without weaving it, it's much easier to rinse it and dry it, then you fold it in your hand again, when using it :-D
