I really liked these scrubbie pads. My former MIL introduced me to them. Over time, the price inched up to where these cost $1 each pad, so I sought alternatives.
I moved to store brand versions, which were hard to find but I finally found one. It was discontinued. I tried dollar store ones, found them far inferior. So, I returned to my old ways: soaking to help loosen, using Brillo pads on metal pans, using Comet type cleanser for really baked on stuff. I use rags to wash dishes.
This newest trick cost me nothing, it's something that I would have tossed into the garbage. It's serving a purpose at the moment, so this is a nice tip.
Although my circumstances have dramatically changed since last year, I continue on the quest to save whatever I can to now put towards my next home. The little things DO add up.
