Hi All,

So this is kind of dumb...but I used to buy soap-filled scrub pads (they were non-scratch) and cannot remember what they were called and cannot seem to find them anywhere.

I had thought they might be brillo, but looked on Amazon and that doesn't seem to be right either. I always bought them in Target.

I'm hoping someone has some ideas.

So I just purchased some SOS pads and those were NOT it. But the ones I used to buy were similar in size. Scotch sells some non-scratch ones that are not soap filled (don't care much about that) but they are too long and too thin. Love that thicker SOS shape...only I want the non-scratch no-rust stuff.

Any ideas...and does anyone even understand what I'm talking about. Maybe another thing that I liked that has been discontinued never to be found again.

I take the nylon netting that apple bags and so on are made of, and turn it inside out repeatedly to form a pad, several bags at a time. Knot off the open end and you have a free scrubber, perfectly safe for your nonstick pans.

I've also seen a pattern using nylon net - simply crochet in a circle until it's as big as you like. If you like them thick, simply cut fatter strips of net, or use several layers.

But as to your original question - I haven't seen them lately either. I just use the thin no-scratch pads, telling myself that the thin ones dry out better and reduce chances of nasties growing.

Diane,

And there it is...that is EXACTLY what I was looking for.

I thought it was Scotch. I live about 3 miles from 3M world headquarters you'd think I'd have a clue regarding their product line.

Thanks for the info anyway.

Jill

Is this the same thing? I can't really tell from the packaging.

I think this might be different...but it's worth a try. I added it to my card. If you check the comments section there are others complaining they can't find the no-rust soap pads.[QUOTE]

I find myself shopping the sort of rural Walgreen's in the next small town for old familiar products that haven't been tampered with. The competition for shelf space in the store is too great and all my old faves have been booted out.

This is particilarly troubling due to my chemical sensitivities. Once they take a great product and add something like febreeze to it I can no longer use it.

Some of the good things turn up at Cvs, too, usually rebranded to their house brand. Have you checked Amazon or Walgreen's online?

In the meantime, put your dirty pan on the burner with water and some baking soda. Bring to boil. Immediately turn off the heat. Put a lid on if you have one out. Let it cool. Dump the water and clean. If the pan is not nonstick, you can also use the baking powder on your sponge as a scrubbing agent.

I'm attached to the scrubbers I grew up with. I won't mention their name, as I'm hoarding them. Whenever I find them, I buy all the store has. Very hard to find. I only have 14 left. They can last a year, unless my husband uses bleach with them, then they disintegrate. They are easy to boil to disinfect. I should go hunting for more....
