Amazing what these little suckers can clean.
1. They clean well from sinks and bathtubs to dried food I cannot get off the dishes.
2. Once all the soap is used up, I can continue to scrub with them.
3. They are made of steel wool so decompose quickly and I can throw them in the compost to add iron. Often times, there is nothing left of it at all by the time I finish but a sprinkling of rust in my soap dish.
4. They don’t come in plastic packaging. The box they come in can be recycled, composted or cut up to make more business cards for this blog.
5. They are fairly cheap.
6. I buy the product, use it AND the packaging it comes in, so there’s nothing left to throw out. I’d consider this zero waste.
1. They do scratch plastic and can scratch certain surface areas, so be careful.
2. We cannot put too many in the compost or our lovely soil will have too high a level of iron content.
Pros outweight cons. I’m using them to clean with, and am pretty happy about it. What product do you like?
