Know what I love, but sometimes forget to stock in my own cleaning arsenal? Steel wool scouring pads, that’s what. It’s so basic, right? Yet how many of you employ this heavy artillery when needed? Thinking they are too abrasive and scratch surfaces? That hasn’t been my experience. I find they make light work of hard and gross chores. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve used these handy scrubbers for the following purposes:
1) remove melted cheese from dishes;
2) clean the persistent baked on gunk from the flat top stove;
3) lift baked-on sauce from porcelain bowls.
Use a soapy scouring pad until it gets gross or loses it’s suds. Then pitch it. They are the ideal cleaning product for commitment-phobes.
