These are three of my go-to kitchen cleanup aids. I prefer the Bon Ami Powder Cleanser because of its simple ingredients: limestone, feldspar, biodegradable cleaning agents (from corn, coconut, and palm), soda ash, and baking soda... and the label's cute baby chick.
The sponge brush is perfect for cleaning two-quart canning jars that I use for raw milk storage and one-quart canning jars that I use for culturing buttermilk and yogurt. With a quick twist of the wrist, the brush swipes away the slight coating of nonhomogenized milk's cream that clings to the jars' sides before its dishwasher sterilization. The brush's adjustable handle lengthens to accommodate taller jars and bottles. It was a bonus gift when I purchased my eco mugs.
The hand crocheted or knitted scrubber is made from netting. I learned that tidbit of info after my curiosity led me to pull a bit of material out of the scrubber's center. In most instances, the scrubber is all that is needed to snuff out a stubborn spot in a pan's bottom. With a squirt of dish soap, it's also perfect for cleaning wooden cutting boards. Toss it in the washing machine's hot water cycle and it's good for another round.
