I had an idea (Shock...LOL). I was looking at a net bath puff I have and it has a lot of nice soft net gathered into a really dense puff. I think I paid $1.99 for it. Why couldn't you take it apart and use that for the face wash cloths? It is made for bathing and I know they do last a long time Plus it is nice and soft but yet rough enough to do the job. I'm sure you can get these at the dollar store in a variety of colors. Any way it was just a thought.

wow!!!! What a great idea!!
I did find the packets of net squares mentioned before but to get them to Australia the total cost was $20+ so I shelved that idea. We can also get the bath puffs for about $2 here so I'm going to try them out.
danababes' idea of using the bath puffs for spool nets is great, too.

Great idea :)

I have used them to make thread nets because I couldnt find them anywhere: after undoing the tie on my scrubby puff I ran it thru my overlocker (serger) to make a very long tube then cut them into spool heights. I made several widths of tubes for different sizes of spools I have - remember to allow for stretch if you're going to make them too :) xXx

Well, I'm going to try them and thank you for the idea. I bought nets way back but now I have 3x more spools to keep tidy.
I'll also make larger ones for my overlocker threads.

I was wondering about that also, wasn't sure it would work since I don't have an extra bath puff to rip apart to check.

I have been re-using this material for a long time. However, we use the puffs as they are intended first. When they start to loosen up from the "puff" I take it apart and use it to make other scrubbing/cleaning projects that require non-abrasive scrubbing tools. Although I have not used it specifically for face cloths, I think it should work just fine.

Here's a photo of my $1.99 bath puff, it's really a nice quality net. I think you could get plenty of applique face cloths out of it to sell and make a profit or make an inexpensive gift.
