To start off the Scotch-Brite scrubbing cloth was something that I thought would replace my scrubbing pad that I use in the sink. To my disappointment, it didn't work like I had wanted it to. It is like a washcloth. Every time I was scrubbing the dish, the water retained on the scrubbing cloth would fly off everywhere, even on my face which I wasn't pleased with. This doesn't happen with a scrubbing pad. Also, it requires a larger area for drying the scrubbing cloth. The scrubbing was gentle and did not ruin some of my pots but the majority of the dishes required a longer scrubbing time to clean it completely and thoroughly. All in all, I am not very impressed with this scrubbing cloth as it cannot replace my scrubbing pads and I am not sure if I can think of using it in any other areas of my house.
