I've found another product worth blogging about.

These "One Scrub Does It All!" things are seriously amazing.

I bought them after I had slopped paint on my hardwood floor and my dear friend suggested I use a dish scrubby to get the paint off the floors.  I didn't have any scrubbies so I went to my neighbourhood Home Hardware to get some.  I almost cheaped out, but then I settled on this product, at $6.29 for a 4-pack of "cleansing pads."  It was important for me to effectively and safely remove these paint drips so the "Removes stains and marks from wood, tile, linoleum floors and walls without scratching the surface." claim sealed the deal.

On the way home, I read the package over and over again.  There were so many promising claims on one box:
  • Scours without Scratching
  • Multi-Purpose
  • Antibacterial - Stays Fresh
  • Takes on the Toughest Jobs
  • Works Where Others Won't
  • Lasts Long and Stays Fresh
I was skeptical and excited all at the same time.  The packaging was rife with information, diagrams, uses, even their website address so you could see "recommended cleaning solutions for any situation"  There were general instructions on how to use my new One Scrub, at the end of which I was assured,
"One Scrub lasts a long, long, long time."  That's three "longs!" I was so stoked.

Then I got home and I assure you, gentle reader, that my elation has only grown.

They've worked brilliantly at their intended purpose, the only reason there are still lots of paint drips on my floors is that:
a) I dripped A LOT of paint
b) I'm lazy
I've also found many other uses for it.  It takes cooked food off teflon frying pans like it's nobody's business - nary a scratch or scuff in sight.  It makes my porcelain sink white again, and the drain sparkles too! It's really good at getting soap scum out of the tub. (I ashamed to admit how soap scummy my tub was, but I've been really, really, really busy up until four days ago.  That's three "busys!") 

Fact: About a month ago I had a candle burning on my mantle and I don't know why the hell this happened, but the wax splattered onto:
1. My freshly painted wall
2. My wood mantle
3. A picture frame (silver and glass)
We're talking dried wax, here people.  My One Scrub handily removed the wax from all surfaces.  By handily I mean efficiently, effectively and safely.

Fact: I bought the box of One Scrubs in March.  It's May.  I am still on my first scrub, with three fresh ones still awaiting me in the box.  I have used this thing all over my house.  You might think that's gross, but you can put these things in the dishwasher which, as far as I'm concerned, kills as many germs as I need killed.  AND- they totally keep their shape in the dishwasher.  No shit.

So, I seriously suggest you buy yourself a box of these One Scrub Does It All! things. They are good value for your dollar because they work - safely on anything and also, they are relatively green since they last forever, and for many jobs you don't even need to use a cleansing agent, just good old tap water.

  1. I loved this, I would type more, but I am halfway out the door to go buy these things, gotta goooooo.

  2. Wonderful! You WON'T be disappointed!

  3. I have watched shameless and I adore it! Chad and I got hooked together. I found out it's a redo of a UK version with the same name, but I won't try to watch the other one for fear of spoiling it.
    Im so glad we love all the same things.
