With the holidays right around the corner, it’s time to brainstorm recipes and menu ideas and prepare for that big holiday grocery outing.  While preparing your shopping list, it’s just as important to add cleaning products and tools that you will need.  Enter Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots Previously I’ve written about the Scotch-Brite™ Brand and how their wide range of products helps me with my household cleaning.  Recently I purchased their new Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots sponges and dishwands.  Today I’m going to share these products with you and show some examples of the products at work in my kitchen, including how I used Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots to clean up after making a Hashbrown Casserole. (Recipe included!)

Scrub Dots Sponges

The Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots products are very useful for cleaning dishes but are also great tools for cleaning countertops and other areas of your house.  You can recognize the products by their colors.  The Non-Scratch Sponges are blue, and the Heavy Duty Sponges are green and yellow.

The Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponge (in blue) is great for cutting through stuck-on messes without scratching surfaces.  This makes it ideal for cleaning glass stove tops and counter tops, as well as dishes, non-stick cookware and pots and pans.

The Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Sponge (in green) is perfect for cleaning those stubborn pots and pans, including your skillets and baking pans that are caked with stuck on food.

Scrub Dots Dishwand

The dishwands are my favorite.  They are designed to help you do the dirty work while keeping your hands clean. The Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Dishwand (in blue) is perfect for most of my dish washing needs.  Like the non-scratch sponge, the dishwand takes care of stuck-on messes without scratching surfaces, making it ideal for cleaning my non-stick cookware and glasses dishes.

The Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Dishwand comes in handy anytime I make one of our favorite casseroles.  I find that when I make a casserole, especially one featuring a starch like potatoes or rice, it usually takes a little extra effort to clean, but the Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Dishwand makes it rather easy to clean.  To give you an example, I used it do the dishes the other day when I made this Hashbrown Casserole.

This Hashbrown Casserole is a delicious side.  If your family likes comfort food, featuring potatoes and cheese, they will love this.  I enjoy serving this at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it also works great for summertime barbecues.
