A great plastic free kitchen starter kit, for your own use or as a gift for a housewarming.

Contains a large cotton produce bag (which can be used as a gift bag), two crochet cotton dishcloths and a pack of jute crochet washing up/cleaning scrubbies.

Each the items are washable at 40c (bag and dishcloths) or 60c (jute scrubbies) and can be used for many months. The washing up scrubbies I made for myself are now coming to the end of their life after 6 months! The thicker cleaning scrubbies still have plenty of life left in them.

The jute washing up/cleaning scrubbies are crocheted in 3 sizes: the thinnest size is best for washing up. The thickest size is best for cleaning and the middle size can be used for either task. The crochet corrugated effect allows for efficient cleaning.

The two dishcloths are crocheted from cotton in a way which helps them remove grime.
Each dishcloth measures: 21 cm by 22.5 cm

The final item in the kit is a produce bag, invaluable when shopping for vegetables, helping to reduce the need for paper or plastic bags. It was made using my 60-year-old treadle sewing machine.
The bag measures: 30 cm high by 29 cm and weighs 19g
It is suitable for larger amounts of vegetables. It will hold more than one kg of potatoes.

As every item is made from natural fibres, they are all biodegradable at the end of their use. Just cut up, soak in water and put into your compost bin.

Item includes UK postage.


Like many other people I'm concerned about the amount of plastic being produced and used. I've been using my crochet and sewing skills to provide other options. And supplying my house with plastic free alternatives.
