I am very much into recycling and these pads are only for one time use. The original NEVER RUST HEAVY DUTY SOAP PADS could be used quite a few times with some cleanser added for suds. I am very disappointed and wish 3M would go back to making the original WILL NOT RUST OR SPLINTER PADS.
I tried these because I couldn't find the original Scotch-Brite Never Rust Heavy Duty Soap Pads. What a disappointment. The other pads I could use for weeks, but these new pads are just like any other steel wool soap pads, only good for one time. I guess we've become such a throw away world that they stopped making the ones that not only last a long time but don't cause splinters. Very disappointed and hope there's some good explanation for why they got rid of the old ones. The truly crazy thing is that the new ones are more expensive than the old ones that were so much better.
The steel wool pads have worked wonders on my pots and pans. When using the pads on the bottoms of my cookware to remove the burned in grease from my husband's cooking, they work so well it is amazing.
I have used other products like this, but WOW, this is the best!!I used these to clean pots and pans I have NEVER been able to clean before, and they look new again. There was even a burned on mess on my stove that came clean with hardly any effort. I will not use anything but these.
I absolutely love all scotch brite products. Scotch brite is literaly the 1 and only product that has always came through for me each and everytime I've ever used it. I do use other products on certain things, and they work good, but when I have a certain issue to deal with and I want to know for sure that I can for example take off this baked on substance, I will always reach for my scotch brite product.
These soap pads rust after one use. I miss the old non rust pads. I don't know why scotch brite doesn't make them any more. I bought these pads, washed my dishes with them and after a few hours, the pads rusted, they don't even last 24 hours.
Response from Scotch Brite:By Scotch-Brite™ Brand Team, April 19, 2013
Hi and thank you for your feedback! We appreciate it and will share with the broader Scotch-Brite team. Unfortunately, the Scotch-Brite™ Never Rust™ Heavy Duty and Delicate Soap Pads were discontinued about a year ago. The new Steel Wool Soap Pads have the same powerful scrubbing performance, however they don't have the same "never rust" attribute given that they're made with steel wool. We also have other products available that might suit your cleaning needs, such as our Non-Scratch Scrub Sponges (http://bit.ly/LKPu5n) or Non-Scratch Scour Pads (http://bit.ly/Oj8qNY). Hopefully this information helps and feel free to call our customer service at #1-800-846-8887 if you'd like to discuss further. Thanks again!
cleans very well .i like all of your products.i had a very burnt and black pan i went over the pan once with the scrubber and let it stand a few minutes and went over it again and it came very clean.all of the burnt residue was gone.
OK, I love roasts but its no secret that I am not a huge fan of washing up the roasting pans and I have been known to soak them for a week so that I can a) soak the stubborn burnt on food into submission and b) avoid the job of scrubbing the pan for as long as possible. This method is just depressing :( However, my Aunt recommended I try the Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Steel Wool scrubbers and I did and I love them (...well, as much as you can love a cleaning product!) I get the water really hot, pull on my rubber gloves and have a good scrub and that pan is all cleaned up in no time. Its the same with the outdoor grill, which is a cleaning job that used to be a huge issue but not any more. These scrubbers are one of the products in my home that there is always an 'extra' pack of because I can't stand the thought of not having one when I need one.
I have been using this product for many years. Mostly on my stove, oven and pots and pans. I dont mind the elbow grease needed, it gets the job done. I always have these under my sink. Thanks for a great product.
I am not disappointed at all! I could only wish that each one last a little longer! I almost feel like they break down quickly but then again I do a lot of dishes. I usually end up adding more soap after a little while but that's to be expected. Tough on grease and baked on food, I have some pans from my storage that had a hard to remove film on them and the scouring pads got the job done just fine. Happy to use them again :)
I'm anxious to try your botanical disinfecting wipes next. Thank you
Hello! The scotchbrite soap pads are amazing. I have a beautiful set of stainless pans that had very ugly bottoms. The scotchbrite scrubbers made the pans look awesome. No embarrassing pan bottoms for me!
