To add some texture and scrubbing ability to your dishcloth / spa cloth try using Bernat Handicrafter Scrub off by Yarnspirations!  While running into Walmart for an errand I spotted this yarn and instantly had to have it!  It was the perfect yarn to make face scrubbies.  I decided to whip up a dishcloth for my mom and add it to her Birthday gift.
