There’s nothing more soothing than a delicate scrubbie to wipe away the stress at night. Best made with cotton yarns, these scrubbies are so soft and safe to use. It would only take you a few minutes to crochet up, so you can make a bunch and donate it to hospitals, or gift your friends!

Determined to be a little nicer to the planet, I picked up some cotton Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn and my crochet hook and got busy. You’ll need to know how to double crochet and slip stitch crochet if you want to make these pads too.
The circle crochet pattern is fabulous for removing makeup and leave your face feeling really clean. Plus they’re easy to wash.
If you don’t know how to crochet in the round, it’s really easy with this pattern. I think crochet in the round is so soothing and meditative, so making these was a breeze for me. I’m also making them to donate to the hospital along with my caps for a cause hats. Often times people end up in the hospitals unexpectedly and don’t have overnight bags. The hospital uses these crochet scrubbies to add to little washing kits for overnight patients.
These reusable scrubbies are quick and the easy crochet pattern can be made in less than half an hour. I recommend using cotton yarn to make these crochet face scrubbies as it’s better for the skin, the environment and easier to clean.
This easy crochet project uses only a small amount of yarn, making it a great crochet pattern to use up scrap yarn.
