These scour pads are great for cleaning off burnt foods from pots and pans as well as stove tops and counters. I made terrible messes when I cook and sometimes I don't get around to cleaning it all up till later on and that can make cleaning so much harder then it would be had I done it right away. These are great for that and so much more. I use them a lot in the kitchen but they are also great for cleaning the shower and sink in the bathroom. They scour away hard water and other hard to remove stains from most surfaces but they can be too abrasive for wood and soft scratchable surfaces so test a small spot first! They don't have a cleaner in them but just a bit of water usually gets the job done. They are basically like the back side of the sponge but without the sponge part and they are bigger and easier to use. I recommend them for the home, garage, and cars along with any other hard to remove stains.
