Tutorial: Remake your bath pouf

I don't know about you, but around my house, bath poufs don't last long. Chris and I each use one (we don't share....it's just kind of like a toothbrush, in my opinion), so it's safe to say we go through a lot of these. I've often thought that there has got to be a way to remake it once it's all stretched out and yucky looking. Do you know what I mean? It's hard to describe....

Anyway, so I finally got around to this, and just thought it was too good not to share. So here is my first ever tutorial! Please let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

First, open the pouf to the center and cut the cord that is holding it all together, being careful not to cut the netting.

Next, WASH the netting. Like, in your washing machine. You can dry it as well.

At this point it is just one loooooong tube of netting:

Next, start at one end and begin folding accordion style. I did mine about 6-7 inches wide, but I'd recommend a little smaller. It's really approximate...you don't have to be perfect here.
If your tube was like mine, it was probably a little twisted in some parts. You can just untwist as you go.

Next, find some rope.

Now cut a long piece off and tie it around your accordion, with the folds on the top and bottom:

Now tie your two ends together, refluff the netting, and TA-DA! Your bath poof, saved and remade!
