No I have no secrets to share with you but I do have a yarn review. If you have a Hobby Lobby you know they are only carrying their brand of yarn. I found a brand called Crafters Secret which is almost identical to Red Heart. Their dishcloth yarn is just like Sugar and Cream. I don't like the idea that I had to pay $2.29 for a skein of dishcloth yarn but you would pay that much for one in the store and it would not last forever. I used the Sinkmate dishcloth pattern which you can find on Ravelry. If you dont' like I-cord don't go there because you start with 76 rows of I-cord and pick up the middle and knit til you are out of stitches.
You get 57 grams or 95 yards or 86 meters for $2.29. I used 37 grams for the Sinkmate, so I have 20 grams to use with another color. I do have some gold that I am going to put the rest of the skein with.
I like Peaches and Crème better because I find it to be a softer yarn, prettier colors and much cheaper, you can still find it at Walmart for $1.47. I think Sugar and Cream is the same expensive price now, so if you want to make dishcloths and only have a Hobby Lobby it will work just fine. My only complaint is the price.
