I like to think that I am regularly bringing you really cool products that help make your life a little easier. That’s my goal! Today is no exception. I’m here to bring some help to all those dishes you have piled up in the kitchen (and if you are a parent and your kitchen is clean, I can only assume that you just don’t use it!). Get ready for a total revolution in the world of kitchen sponges!
There are two very cool products put out by a company called Goodbye Detergent that I want to talk about today. The first is called the Spaghetti Scrub. This is a super cool dish cleaner that is made from corn or peach pits (depending on the particular one you buy). It can be used for several months before it needs to be replaced. Mold and bacteria don’t grow on it (unlike nasty sponges) and it removes most gunk without any soap. If you have grease on your dishes, you need just the tiniest little dab of soap to get the job done. It is SO FREAKIN’ COOL!
The second product we love is the Stainless Steel Kitchen Cleaning Pad. We have fabulous stainless steel cookware, and we love everything about it EXCEPT for its cleaning regimen. They can’t go in the dishwasher, and they require this harsh chemical stuff called Bar Keeper’s Solution in order to keep their shiny luster. The Kitchen Cleaning Pad gets this pots and pans totally clean with no chemicals. It has totally rocked our world, and we’ll be using these for the rest of our days, for sure!
Check out the video, where my husband (the chief dishwasher) shows you both items in action!
We are HUGE fans of Goodbye Detergent products, and I enthusiastically recommend them to anyone who wants to eliminate (or at least severely reduce) the chemicals they use when cleaning dishes, or if you are looking to get rid of your nasty kitchen sponges. They can be purchased at several places online, including Amazon.
