Tesco Fingergrip Sponge Pan Scourers
Advantages: Wide variety of uses, long lasting, good quality
Disadvantages: Cheaper similar scourers available
Not being a dyed in the wool 'Mrs Mop' type, I do try to purchase multi-purpose cleaning products, so I don't have my under-the-sink cupboard bulging with items which are hardly ever used. I like to be able to get my hands on something that works, quickly and not spend an age with my head banging the waste pipe whilst I search for my cleaning Holy Grail! And that is where the Tesco non-scratch fingergrip sponge pan scourers come in . . .
These scourers are currently on sale at Tesco for 82p for a pack of 6. Not the cheapest sponge scourer - Tesco 5 pack of value scourers are currently 14p - but I think good value for the long lasting non scratch version. They come in a thin plastic wrapper which normally tears when you open the packet, so ends up in the bin. The scourers are loosely attached to one another by perforation on the scourer surface, so when you want a new one you just give it a little tug to seperate it from it's neighbour.
As I stated in the beginning, I don't have a dazzling array of cloths, buffs, sponges, pads etc. My cleaning cupboard staples are these scourers, Tesco value multi-purpose cloths and a few micro-fibre cloths which I find cover pretty much everything I need to rub, dust, scrub and buff on a daily basis. Yes, I do use these scourers for the obvious job of washing up, however I also have one in each toilet/bathroom at home and use them to clean the bath, shower, toilets and wash hand basins. They are also put to use on a regular basis for cleaning my stainless steel range cooker hob and door, scrubbing my eldest daughters, wellies and crocs when they get particularly grubby, as well as many other 'scrubby' type activities around the house. That is a definite advantage of the non scratch surface - you can use it on a wide variety of surfaces without having to worry about damaging them.
The grooves in the sides of the sponge do help to stop the sponge flying out of your hand when using it and the sponge itself is quite firm and dense which helps it last for a decent length of time. I regularly use these scourers with bleach based cleaners which are notorious for degrading/eating through sponges etc and they stand up to the onslaught very well.
As with all non-scratch scourers, they aren't as good as the good old fashioned green scourers as getting to grips with burnt on food but I have rarely had a problem removing my cooking debris from pots and pans with these. They also don't fall apart and become full of holes like alot of green scourers. When they are nearing the end of their useful life, I find the scouring surface will normally 'bobble-up' and flatten rather than fall to pieces. I have yet to have a sponge desintegrate which shows how well made they are.
In summary, I think these scourers are great and I would thoroughly recommend them. They are very effective, easy to use, multi-purpose & long lasting. Although there are simliar products which are cheaper, I still feel these represent excellent value for money for the above reasons. My Tesco non scratch sponge pan scourers will retain their place in my under-the-sink cupboard and continue to be used for a long time yet - 5 stars from me.
Many thanks for reading.
Summary: Good for many uses
