Advantages: Cheap to buy, numerous uses around the house and garden
We like to keep our costs down as far as we can and often try out the value brand goods to see if they are as good as the expensive versions. When we started shopping with Tesco Online we spotted these Sponge Pan Scourers and thought we would give them a try seeing as they only cost 14p for a pack of 5.
The sponges come in a plastic wrap and they are a white colour with the scouring side of the sponge a nice dark green.
You can use them for a lot of different things around the house and we have many uses for them. The first thing we use them for is the washing up. They are brilliant for this, the scouring side gets the hard bits off of the dishes and then the sponge side is good for going over them again to make sure they are nice and clean. If you have a dirty saucepan they are great for that too, my OH is brilliant at putting the peas on and forgetting about them, hence we have a burnt mess in the bottom of the pan, but with a bit of elbow grease and one of these scourers I always manage to clean the pan out so there is no trace of any burnt substance in the bottom. I find that after all this scouring I need to throw away that sponge and get a new one out but at 14p for 5 you don't mind this. We also use one on our non stick frying pan, we usually use the sponge side on that so that we don't scratch the surface and it works fine.
Another use we find for them is cleaning the bathroom. They are perfect for this job. I keep one by the bathroom sink so I can clean it every day after everyone has used it. It is also good in the bath and does't scratch it at all. The sponge side is good for doing the tops around the bathroom like the window sill and the top of the toilet cistern as they collect the dust.
Another good use for them is the electric grill. We have one of those George Foreman grills, it is a big round one which we have out in the garden in the summer months to use instead of a BBQ. It gets really dirty by the end of the day with all the nasty burnt on food from cooking but these scourers work a treat. I takes a good 5 or ten minutes to clean it up properly but it works and gets it all off. The scourer needs to be binned after though as it is black. I suppose you could try washing them in the machine but again at 14p its not worth the bother.
We also use the sponges for other good uses, washing the floor if its not too bad, wiping up stuff from the carpet, my Other Half uses one to clean the wheels on his car, in fact just about anything that needs washing you can use one side or another. I have even used one for painting before now. I was painting my front door with a sponge roller and when it had dried I saw I had missed a bit and had already got rid of the roller so out came a sponge scourer and it worked brilliantly.
I would definitely recommend you to add a few packs of these to your Tesco shop next time you do one. They are brilliant value for money and we wouldn't be without a pack in the cupboard waiting to be used.
