Do you ever avoid using some of your glass vases, carafes, or decanters because they're oddly shaped and just too hard to clean? Or when you do use them, do you push a sponge in as far as it will go, swish around some soapy water, and hope that this will do a good enough job of cleaning them like I do?
Well, these problems are a thing of the past! My husband recently introduced me to the Cuisipro Magnetic Spot Scrubber, and let me tell you people, my world has been rocked.
Why Do You Need a "Magnetic Scrubber"?
This small 1.25-inch wide little gadget from Cuisipro looks unassuming but serves a mighty purpose — a strong magnet is enclosed in a rubber scrubber so that you can guide the scrubber around from the outside of basically any shaped glassware this little guy can fit into.
Here are some of the things I find hardest to clean: decanters with super-narrow necks, tall glass vases that a normal dishwashing brush can't reach the bottom of, and narrow champagne flutes.
Could the magnetic scrubber tackle these challenges? I took it for a test drive and was mightily pleased with the results. Here's how it works:
How the Cuisipro Magnetic Gadget Works
Fill whatever glassware you need to clean with warm, soapy water. Drop in the smaller half of the magnet.
Use the other half of the magnet to guide the scrubber around the inside to clean it. Rinse out the glassware and you're done!
Well, Does It Work? Yes!
Instead of it being a chore to clean glassware, it actually became kind of fun. With very thin, delicate glassware, the scrubber was a bit harder to maneuver around since the magnetic attraction was so strong, but it still did a good job of helping scrub out all the red wine sediments sitting on the bottom of my decanter.
I also loved that this little guy was easy to rinse, dry off, and store since it's so small, especially compared to a bulky cleaning brush that takes forever to dry. I'm ecstatic that someone finally came up with such a simple yet absolutely genius idea!
