Hopefully, “Blind Lobsters” will help in spring cleaning.
I thought blinds would be a great window treatment for my entire house, until I realized they need to be cleaned. It can be a tedious job. I saw this clever invention at the store…
Right away I knew I could make my own, sturdier version. Blind Lobsters are easy to make, washable and slip over a pair of kitchen tongs. I spray mine with a little dust cleaner and they did the job. They also work great on ceiling fan blades and cleaning silverware. When done, slip them off and throw in the washer and dryer.

I like using Peaches and Cream yarn for my scrubbies. It comes in large cones for approximately $8.00 and $2.00 for the small skeins.
Throughout the year I find myself needing a neat gift for random reasons. Scrubbies of any kind are great to have on hand for many occasions. SO, as part of my quest to work on gifts throughout the year I will be sharing a different scrubbie pattern each week throughout 2015.
All featured scrubbie patterns will be on the “DIY cleaning & Organizing” Board.
