This is the best multi-purpose scrubber pad we've seen. Its long-lasting, non-porous silicone construction means that it won't harbour bacteria and it will not develop a funky odour. If you think it's getting dirty, just pop it in the dishwasher. The 5,000 silicone bristles gently loosen soil from vegetables with no bruising. They're great for washing dishes and they're soft on hands. Makes a great gift.
