It’s summer. I love summer.
We’re keeping up with the basics, but the very nature of summer means there are days when dishwashing emergencies happen.
Y’know, like when you stay at the pool just a few (or twenty) minutes too long, so you decide the only option for getting dinner on the table AND showering before the evening’s baseball game is sticking something frozen in the oven.
On a cookie sheet.
But the cookie sheet is sitting in the sink (dirty) because it didn’t fit in the dishwasher last night.
Yay for our favorite kitchen tool.
It’s perfect for kids to use because it eliminates the need for excessive-dish-soap-squirting. (Not that my kids would know anything about that.)
It’s also perfect for quickly and easily washing the single cookie sheet I need NOW.
Oh, and then there are the moments when you’re heading out to the 50 cent summer movies and realize you never washed the popcorn bucket after the last movie you saw.
(You do realize all the “yous” in this post are talking about me, right? Okay, good.)
Yep, the dishwand is good for popcorn-bucket-cleaning too. No need to squirt a glob of detergent into the bucket, spend five minutes rinsing obsessively, and then still end up wishing your popcorn didn’t taste a little like dish soap.
Scotch-Brite asked me to review two of our favorite tools, but it was hard to decide on the next one. I liked all of them.
I decided the coolest, totally-new-to-me one has to be the Stay Clean Scrubbing Dish Cloths. My middlest son used it in the video. As he said, it’s kind of like a sponge, a scrubber and a dishcloth all in one.
It has the soakey-uppy-ness of a sponge, but I can use it like a dishcloth. And . . . the other side is scrubby. You can fold it over to scrub the counter when you find a particularly scrub-worthy spot. This helps when someone (totally hypothetically, of course) missed a spaghetti-sauce-splatter the night before.
Or two nights before.
The only thing I don’t love is that when it dries, it no longer drapes over the divider in my kitchen sink the way a regular dishcloth would.
This is what it looks like when it dries:
