    Default The world's best pot scrubber!

    My grandma gave me a mixer and stuffed in the bowl was a piece of tulle. She told me she uses it to wash pans. Sure enough, when I tried it, it worked GREAT. Just ball it up and scrub away and gunk comes off really easily. The nice thing is, tulle is very inexpensive and you don't have to worry about having a germy spongy thing laying around. If the tulle gets too icky, toss it and use a new section. (sometimes the hot water melts cheese and it gets stuck in it).

    I've crocheted a little scrubber out of tulle before It worked really well and kept the tulle together nicely...but it's one material that's hard to work with!

    I have a 'scrubber' on my to-do list. There are a lot of great patterns out there if you sew, knit or crochet.
    I can't be out of money... I still have checks left!

    Another thing a lot of people use for scrubbers are BREAD TABS! Believe it or not, I have heard they are wonderful for that use.

    My granny used to crochet them. She would give everyone 5 at christmas time. They would last about that long.

    I think I may have to start making some!

    I agree that tulle makes a great scrubber for things that are not likely to scratch easily, BUUUUT I have a new favorite as of 2 years ago. I read that using a dryer sheet (can already have been used for drying) and letting it soak in the pan will make things just wipe clean. With great skepticism, I tried it on a skillet that hat been used to cook 18 dozen scrambled eggs (for burritos at the church before the kids went to a campout) and had not been cleaned out between batches. Left the skillet soaking with cold water and the dryer sheet overnight and wnet in in the morning prepared to scrub, and was in awe! It worked! everything just wiped right out with no scrubbing. I have subsequently removed all kinds of cooked-on grime from roasting pans, cookie sheets, even the grill. The only thing that I think it doesn't work on like that is sugary stuff that is cooked on - so if you make raspberry muffins and drip jam on the muffin pan and bake it on thinking it will just wipe off after a good soaking, you'll find that you are wrong.

    The best scrubber I ever had was from fuller brush

    my Sister shared one with me

    It is called "Stainless Steel Sponge"

    A box of 3 is $8.49 ( I just looked at their website ) and I now have had mine for about 15 yeas and i wouldn't take anything for it....and that is the honest truth....Best thing my sister ever gave me
