Scotch-Brite Dishwand: A Germaphobic Freak Finds A New Best Friend

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Easy to use, scrubber pad, comes assembled, no leaks.

Cons:Not thin enough to fit inside some bottles.

The Bottom Line: For fifty cents I couldn't pass it up!





I get ribbed on an almost daily basis about going to Save-A-Lot; everyone thinks that it is nothing but a knock-off grocery store along the lines of Aldi's. Yes, they do have a lot of no-brand-name products but they do have some incredible bargains so it's kind of like going to Big Lots because you never know what you are going to find. Be forewarned, there are knock-off versions of this dishwand and they are not worth getting because they leak or fall apart in a matter of days.

The Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Soap Dispensing Dishwand was in a cart with a lot of other cleaning products. The dishwand and a whole box of the replacement pads were reduced to fifty cents each. I was reluctant to get one of these because I had bought others in the past that leaked and ended up wasting a lot of dish soap. Knowing from past experiences, you don't pass up a deal like this because if you wait even a day you are going to miss out on it. I got one of the dishwands and six packs of the refills [for a total of twelve as there are two per package].

What is it? A plastic wand with an ovalish shaped scrubber pad that is used instead of a sponge. There is a sponge under the scrubber pad so it isn’t like you are just getting the scrubber but the sponge never really comes in contact with anything except the sides of whatever you are cleaning. If there is one thing I hate about sponges it’s the smelly funk that can develop on them; noy only does that get on your hands and linger but it’s a sure sign that there is something nasty growing on and in it. Do you really want that coming in contact with your dishes, bowls and glasses?

Advantages: You can save a lot of dishsoap with this because you aren't squirting it on a sponge or into something every five minutes. Just fill it to capacity and prime the sponge head a few times to get the soap into the pad. I put this into a plastic tumbler when I am done with it and dump out the water that is in the sponge a couple times a day. You can leave it laying on its side on the top ledge of your sink but you'll get some wicked soap build up from it after a couple weeks. The pads last a week or so depending on how often you use it and what you are cleaning with it.

Disadvantages: The refills can be expensive so I am glad I got a ton of them; the plastic wand is well made so chances are I won't have to buy another one for a long time. Because of the size of the ovalish scrubbing pad there are some bottles and glasses that you won't be able to get it in to, this includes baby bottles and thinner canning jars. For the larger sized Ball and Mason jars this is a godsend because you can get to the bottom of the jars without having to fight to get that area clean.

The Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Soap Dispensing Dishwand is a nice thing to have in the kitchen; when I go back to Save-A-Lot I am going to see if there are any more of these because it would be great to have one in the bathroom to scrub around the sink and to get in the corners of the vanity and baseboards. It is also extremely easy to use too; the small rubber button that is used to dispense soap when you need it rarely needs to get presses because gravity takes care of that when I have it standing upright in a tumbler.

Not everyone is going to love this; there are some cons because of the size and shape of the scrubbing pad but for normal sized glasses, plates, bowls and common sink items this does a great job of getting them clean, saving a little on dish soap and being able to swap out the sponge head when needed. Some people just refuse to throw away a sponge until it is falling apart. If they could see what is growing in and on that thing they'd probably pass out.
