Sometimes I have an idea around the house, and it works well, but I immediately decide I will not blog about it. It either seems difficult or I think people won’t care or I just plain don’t have the energy. This is one of those ideas.
I didn’t want to blog about Brillo Pads, but I found myself doing it anyway. That doesn’t make sense? I know.
Here are the risks I incur by writing this post: 1) You will be bored to tears because I am talking about Brillo Pads. 2) You will refuse a dinner invite to my house because you will be scared to use the cutlery or bathroom sink after seeing the pictures.
But as I cannot seem to stop this post and my Brillo Pad excitement, I accept these risks. (I did not get paid to write this, but above is an affiliate link. By the way, I’ve also seen a pack of eight for $1 at the Dollar Tree.)
Please put on your no-judgement goggles. Here are the small wonders this classic scrubbing pad has been cleaning around my house. (Everything had been cleaned previously with dish soap or regular multipurpose cleaner that didn’t quite get the job done.)
So here’s the one you were expecting. Yes, Brillo Pads works amazingly well on pots and pans.
… and silverware …
… but have you considered a stainless steel sink? With little effort the pad gets it sparkling in no time.
I also started using it on the dish drainer. Not that it needed it.
The bathroom is another great place for the Brillo. Florida water is brutal, so I scrubbed everything stainless steel in both bathrooms, starting with the water deposits on the faucet.
And then the bottom of my favorite Ikea toothbrush holder.
This hand-held shower head should probably be replaced, but eh, not a top priority. This buys us some time in my opinion.
I don’t know if you can see the green ickiness on the top photo that shower cleaner couldn’t tackle, but it’s gone on the bottom photo!
The whole reason I got on this Brillo Pad kick was because my glass stovetop desperately needed help. Aside from a razor blade, this did the trick for getting rid of burned gunk better than anything else I’ve tried — including the obvious stovetop cleaner. But I could not for the life of me get a decent picture without reflections and poor lighting. I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it.
There, now either you’re yawning (but hey, you made it to the end!) or you’re motivated to get some Brillo Pads. Do you use Brillo Pads for something I’ve missed or have your own secret cleaning weapon?
