I have been using SOS Pads since I was old enough to reach the sink! Mom always had SOS waiting to assist with the dishes and nothing had changed in my house when I grew up! I have always found SOS to be great in assisting with the harsh clean up of stuck on food in my glass casserole dishes. It is amazing how the clean up time is cut in half! Another great use for the SOS Pad is to get the bottom of your pots looking like new. When the bottoms of your pots get marks from the stove burners or water boils over and stains the bottom of the pots, SOS will clean them up just like new. I have even used the SOS Pad inside the oven for harsh, baked on food. Be careful when using the pad though because they can scratch some surfaces. The only thing I don't like about the pads is that if you are not careful, you can cut your fingers on the wool, but that is nothing that a pair of gloves can't fix! Also, do not use it on your non stick pans, it will scratch them.
