Brillo Review

My apartment doesn't have a dishwasher (yes don't remind me, I wish I had one!) so I need to make sure my dishes are hand-washed as well as possible. I've been using Brillo for years and I really trust their products to help me get my silverware and plates sparkling clean.

Brillo has been a trusted name in household cleaning for over 88 years. Brillo offers classic products that are unmatched for tough, heavy-duty cleaning and new ones that are perfect for everyday needs on all sorts of items.

I was sent a variety of items to review. I received Brillo soap pads, Brillo Estracell sponge wipes, and Brillo Estracell scrub sponges with wedge edge. All of these products are awesome for doing the dishes and also for other cleaning jobs around your home.

I grew up with my whole family using Brillo steel wool soap pads. My grandma used it, my mom uses it, and now I use it. It is perfect for washing out stainless steel pots and pans, a coffee cup, or a dish. Just be careful to not use it on teflon! The beauty of it is that you don't have to use anything else with it. The soap contained inside the pad foams up enough and does a great cleaning job that you don't need any other dish liquid with it. Simply rinse clean after you've soaped up that pot or dish and you will instantly notice how clean it is. I love that such a small cleaning tool can do such a powerful job. It is also lemon-scented, which is pleasant.

The sponge wipes are awesome! They are made from a polyester-type material which, according to the company, cleans better, is more sanitary, and rinses and dries faster. These sponges are not a host for germs and bacteria, like traditional cellulose sponges are. Just thinking about a regular sponge and how bacteria filled it is makes me cringe! These Brillo sponge wipes are thinner than a regular sponge but bigger in size. The sponge wipe was easy to grip and did a fantastic job of cleaning my counter top, stove top, and even sink top! It easily rinsed clean and I was very impressed with the way it cleaned surfaces. I have not tried this product on dishes, although I'm sure it would do a fantastic job too.

Lastly, the scrub sponge with wedge edge is perfect for cleaning in your home. The Wedge Edge is a multi-surface, no scratch scrub sponge that features a patent pending 30-degree angle shape that reaches deeper into hard-to-get-to corners and crevices. I used it to clean inside my hard to reach baseboards. In return, I was left with the perfect white color signaling cleanness. I usually have trouble cleaning my baseboards, but it was a breeze with this sponge. This would also be a great sponge to use for wiping down a kitchen table or counter top. The wedge edge is convenient and very easy to hold. It does a great job of scrubbing.

Brillo sponges will change the way that you clean, I guarantee it. Not only can you use it in your home but use it for your backyard grill or any other creative way you can think of.
