My husband, who does practically all of the dishwashing in our household (yes, he's awesome!), requested a reorder of these Spaghetti Scrubs. The original pair we had lasted nearly a year, more than justifying their moderately expensive price. He really likes how they scour without scratching, letting you really scrub a pot clean without worrying that you're taking off the finish. And he's the expert around here, when it comes to cleaning pots, so I promptly got us some refills. Have you ever tried these?
