Spicy Water Chestnut Bombs & Clean Up with Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth #ScrubDishCloth

Whenever I have friends and family over they always request Water Chestnut Bombs. Spicy, sticky, crunchy and bacon-y; what could be better?! The only little problem is the mess they leave behind on the baking sheet. I usually end up soaking the oooy, gooey goodness in hot water and soap, but it still requires a good scrubbing.

That’s where the NEW Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth comes in so handy! Scotch-Brite, the brand you and I trust for sponges, is bringing us a “supercharged” dish cloth. The dish cloth comes in a two pack, which are available in gray, mint, coral, and navy for $4.99 at Target. It features two sides with non-scratch scrubbing dots technology that scrub away the oooy, gooey goodness easily, yet also has the drying power of a dish cloth. They are fully washable, and reusable- so toss it in the washer after a good scrubbing! Want to check out more recipes from around the web that pack in the extra sticky?

I don’t always like to use harsh chemicals on my cutting boards and dishes. Something that I like to do to enhance the cleaning power of my Scrubbing Dish Cloth is use a natural soap, or a natural scrub with ingredients that clean, sanitize and scrub at the same time, naturally! The natural scrub takes the scrubbing power of the Scotch-Brite to a whole new level, and I know it’s safe for my family, plus by using something that is reusable, you know it’s good for the environment.

Lemon/Salt Scrub for Wood Cutting Boards:

  • ¼ cup sea salt
  • 1 T olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 half of lemon

Combine the sea salt and oil in a small bowl. Cut your lemon in half, then dip into your salt/oil mixture. Place your lemon with the salt/oil mixture on it, on the wooden cutting board that needs freshening. Use a little arm muscle and coat the wood board with the lemon juice, salt and oil. Dip for more cleaning power.
