Since the dawn of time a fight has raged on. A silent war between two vastly different factions who reside on this funny little planet called Earth. The battleground? The kitchen!
There are two types of people when it comes to cleaning up after the havoc of a home cooked meal. Those who prefer the classic resilience of a dishcloth, and those who prefer the versatility and general ease of the sponge. Like myself.
To represent for my team I’m sharing with you lovely folks how to concoct one of my favorite recipes. My Ooey Gooey Four Cheese Lasagna. Because few things are as guaranteed to please even the most finicky of palates quite like a delicious, homemade lasagna. And with this recipe you definitely can’t go wrong.
While this insanely tasty dish is definitely one of the most popular among my family and friends. it also happens to be one of the most (let’s face it, THE most) kitchen destroying recipes that I make. And while that may be true, I never worry too much because I know I have Scotch-Brite® Scrub Sponges to help me break through that grit and grime. After all is said and done. Time after time.
But no matter what team you’re on. There’s good news for you. Because Scotch-Brite has you covered with top-notch sponges AND dish cloths. So, while that silent war may rage on, as long as you’re using Scotch-Brite you’ll be a winner in the end! Especially seeing as how Walmart is the perfect one-stop shop. Where you can not only grab your ingredients for this lasagna but also pick up new sponges to make clean up a breeze.
I happen to err on the side of ‘team sponge’. Why? Because they make tackling burnt on messes a breeze. If you’re looking to conquer those baked on, formidable messes Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Scrub Sponges are what you’re after. Believe me when I say that this green wonder sponge is able to resolve the most challenging of messes and do it 50 percent faster than other competitors. You can even take it beyond your kitchen and put it to work in the bathroom and even your garage. Shoot for the moon with this sponge and it will clean that very moon when you land.
When you don’t need the wallop that the Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge packs (green sponges), you can always count on the Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge (blue sponges) to be there for your day-to-day cleaning needs. Whether you need to get those non-stick pots and pans clean or just tidy up around the kitchen, these sponges will provide maximum cleaning power, without any of the harshness or scratching.
