Handy Cloths – Free Crochet Pattern

I have a tendency to drop cloths whether I am doing household cleaning or personal care. Enter the Handy Cloths! I decided to make a simple round scrubby and cloth size design with a handle! The scrubby size easily slips over your fingers and works great for facial cleansing or small jobs. The cloth size one can slip on to your wrist and be used as a wash or dish cloth, and I think it would also be great for wiping up spills too! My testers really liked it for those kitchen and cleaning tasks. The other great thing about the Handy Cloths design is that it easily hangs to dry after you are done with it.
