And just like that…the holidays are over. Today my kids will return to school and life as we knew it will resume its normal pace. With any extended holiday break, most people (parents or not) find themselves a bit stressed by this time. And while comfort food is great to unwind with in the kitchen. There’s another tool I just found helps wipe away the holiday mess and stress with too.
Which believe it or not…is the new Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth. Stay with me now. Because I know ya’ll love those high end dishwashers you have tucked under your counter. And there’s nothing wrong with using them. But I’m seriously thinking this reinvented (premium weave) dish cloth is the best thing since sliced bread. And I’m going to layer in all these textured cloth pictures and tell you exactly why.
Because not so long ago, I hated washing dishes. I mean really…I loathed even sliding them in the dishwasher. I was a newly single Mom of two Littles, and paper plates became my best friend. No joke, I even donated every single dish and bowl I had. Even chucked the silverware! Which is great…until all that paper and plastic isn’t.
Fast forward a few months into my dish-free agenda…and I realized I started looking forward to washing up the random bakeware we used. And I really loved cleaning up my glass items the most. The kids would be off playing (because they sure aren’t going to help). My hands were in hot, soapy water. And I don’t think there’s anything that can make your kitchen life easier then a pink grapefruit scent to perk you right up!
See, the larger baking pans weren’t a good fit in my dishwasher anyhow. So I’d clean them all up, wipe them dry, and then scrub down the sink. The world at large could wait. My mind had a singular focus. And so few items weren’t taxing or troublesome to do. It became it’s own stress relieving ritual. Which from that, lead to finding a whole new joy in scrubbing out the stress in my life.
But as I accrued more of the glass items I loved, I never really found a hand towel that would wick the water away without a smear. Or even a good dish cloth that didn’t have to be put down while I used a knife or nail to scrape away an unmentionable. That is…until a very particular non-scratch textured dish cloth came into my home.
Capitalizing on it’s well known textured dish sponge; the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth gives you both the scrubbing power and drying functions of the perfect kitchen tool in one. Fully washable, reusable, and sturdy…this isn’t your grandma’s wash rag. Not to mention those textured scrubbing dots feel so good on stressed fingers! It’s great on every tough mess and variety of surfaces from your kitchen to your bathroom.
And did I mention they were even on sale at Kroger when I popped in last? With an in-store offer that gives you back $1.50 for a 2-pack this January…I was really eager to give them a try. The thought that this one thing could replace a towel, dish cloth, plastic scraper, and dish brush? Well, I picked up two packs. Which coming in a variety of colors, means one will be for washing and one kept for drying.
Initially I thought it odd they were stocked with the heavy duty cleaning supplies. But after replacing my trove of kitchen tools? Now it makes complete sense. Because this is really the dish cloth, reinvented. Just make sure you know where you can find them so you can feel the power they have too!
So if you’re ready to take cleaning to a whole new level…make sure to grab the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth. Because even the best dishwasher still needs you to wipe down and scrub off the biggest messes. But remember, these cleaning genie’s aren’t just limited to your kitchen sink.
