Scotch-Brite Dobie Cleaning Pads: For your "non-stick"
With as much time as I spend in the kitchen (no complaints here), I'm always looking for products that make food prep and clean-up easier. With dark granite counter-tops, glass-ceramic cook-top, stainless steel and "non-stick" cookware there's always something that needs cleaning and I find that a common sponge just doesn't get it done. **Scotch-Brite Dobie Cleaning Pads** One of the products that I find most helpful is the **Scotch-Brite Dobie Cleaning Pads** by 3M. These are relatively small (4" x 3") plastic covered scrubbing pads that are just mildly abrasive. The durable plastic cover envelopes a spongy core. With its mild abrasive quality it's usually all I need to keep the counter-top clean after I spray it with a little Formula 409 or Mr. Clean solution. The fine plastic loops on the pad are just abrasive enough to pick up any of the fine, crusted debris left on the counter-top. But where the Dobie Cleaning Pads really shine is in their ability to really clean my "non-stick" surfaces without damaging them. A little soapy water and a Dobie Pad gets rid of the grease and oil and anything that daned to stick to "non-stick" coating. Most times, the Dobie Pad will work pretty well on my stainless steel and cast iron cookware as well, but there are times when a burnt on mess is too much for a Dobie if a prolonged soak isn't possible. Unlike common sponges, Dobies are easily cleaned by just tossing them in the washing machine. By the end of a wash cycle, a nasty looking dobie will emerge as bright and yellow as it was when it was first removed from the packaging. So, where a sponge may last a week or two in my kitchen, a Dobie Claning Pad lasts easily a month or two. I like that. **My Viewpoint** Anything that makes my time in the ktchen a little easier and more pleasant gets my attention. Scotch-Brite Dobie Cleaning Pads get my attention and probably will get yours as well. I recommend them. Rudi
