Dish rags

:??hi… can you make dish rags from 100% acrylic :shrug: I need to make a huge amount and have alot of this wool only.:tap:

They’re not very absorbent, from what I understand. The water kind of sits in the spaces rather than soaking in the fiber, if you know what I mean.

Cotton is best, but I’ve also used microfiber and it works pretty well.

Acrylic isn’t very absorbent, but if you use a pattern with some texture it should hold enough water to scrub a dish or wipe the counter. On the plus side, it dries faster than cotton and, like cotton, can be machine washed. Bottom line: cotton is perfect for the purpose but if what you’ve got is acrylic, it’ll do.
