Spontex Tough Scourers
Advantages: Cleans away unwanted food
Disadvantages: It can burn the hands
When washing up I seriously dislike cleaning up the marks you get sometimes from cooking meat. When I cook some joints I have this huge pan I use and when the meat is finished I am left with tones of grease and other items stuck to the bottom.
You have scourers usually to try and remove those stubborn bits which are stuck and the reason for this is because a normal washing up sponge can take away some parts but not all of it.
The Spontex scourers are perhaps the best I have used and are nothing like the cheaper alternatives you find in places. In Tesco I brought a pack of four pack recently for
I found them easy to notice as they were down the cleaning isle and they had a nice look to them. They are the round scourers and they are made from recycled steel. I dislike the softer versions of the scourers which offer little resistance.
I first used these when I had a joint yesterday the typical sunday road. I had done a shoulder of lamb and I was left with so many problems and the hot water did little to help. I used the scourer in a clockwise motion and it helped remove that stubborn food which was stuck to the sides.
I found the product good for removing the problems but it hurt my hands. I think this could be the fact I was scrubbing so hard or it might be down to the fact I was not using them correctly.
You have to use some elbow grease otherwise they are pointless in having at home so when you apply pressure sometimes they can hurt the hands. I found after a few attempts with this scourer the product eventually turned into a mess.
Some people might know what I mean but you have a scourer which turns into a large pad and it can start creating a mess. They do last a long time and they do not often leave behind any bristles you sometimes find after doing the washing up.
I rarely use these all the time as they are not always needed but I have some spare just incase and they are the best. They do not rip apart like cheaper scourers do and they offer a great service with decent results. I have never found a problem it could not tackle.
I would tell people it can scratch pans if you use them on there own, you do need a cleaning liquid because it will just rip the pan apart. I have done this before and was left very upset because I was to stubborn to listen to advice handed to me.
I also found it was easy to clean because dirt and food can build up inside the scourer and I have to admit this was not something that happened often when using this item for me.
Summary: One of the best scourers around
