Crafty-lady that I am, I receive Michael’s emails with coupons, specials, and occasional how-tos.

Now obviously these are all patterns promoting a specific brand of yarn, but for the most part you could use any scraps you have (except maybe for the scrubby part of the dishcloth). Also just crocheting/knitting a tight square of single-crochets (or whatever that translates into knitting) will result in a reusable cloth for cleaning any surface.
Remember, very few things actually have to end up in the garbage pile – get creative!
