For the last couple years, I have been casually looking for the plastic scrubbers that I have used for decades when washing dishes.
I never found any, but I thought that was because I wasn't looking hard enough. But the last one I have is falling apart, and I've been looking harder now and still can't find any. All they sell are sponges with a little bit of scrubber on one side, or on the outside. Those get dirty and also wear out much faster.
I'm talking about a big coil of curled heavy plastic thread (the "thread" is maybe an eight or a sixteenth of an inch wide and a millimeter thick) coiled and the wrapped into a ball.
The last one I have is red. I use them for dishes and for cleaning lots of other things too.
Do they still sell these and do you know where I can get them?
I also keep brass, copper, and stainless steel wire balls for scrubbing. I can still get copper, and I can get stainless steel but in a much smaller ball than they used to be, smaller than works well, and I think only in the dollar stores, not the supermarkets or Target, but I haven't been able to find brass at all for years. Is there a place to get brass scrubbers, or bigger stainless steel scubbers.?
