I thought blinds would be a great window treatment for my entire house, until I realized they need to be cleaned. "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’ve been meaning to make a couple new crochet kitchen towels, but I wanted something a little less traditional in style. Having to constantly pick up the towels off the floor and wash them because they’ve slipped off the oven handle yet again, gets old in a quick hurry. After designing the Buffalo Plaid Kitchen Towel, I realized how much I loved the style and immediately started on the Farmhouse Striped Kitchen Towel. I hope you find that these towels will also make great gifts!
These scrubby dishcloths are the perfect all purpose cleaning cloths. They are double sided with a gentle cotton side for nonabrasive cleaning and a scrubby side for tougher jobs.

Free crochet pattern from Petals to Picots.
I love being able to make things for specific needs. Recently I decided a hanging towel would work perfectly in our trailer bathroom. The only problem is there is a hook and not a bar to wrap a tabbed cloth around. I finished the top off with a D ring instead and it is just right. Of course I needed some cloths to match.
