With regards to the section mentioned below "Scrubbies". I love the crochet dish clothes made from cotton yarn. I have recently made these dishclothes with the scrubbies and they work wonders. I find the crocheted or knitted dish clothes last a lot longer than store bought ones.

Scrubbies: These range from the Scotch Brite type green pads to the nylon
puffy ones. Everyone needs a scrubbie or two for scouring
pots and pans and tough corners. Some are much more
abrasive than others and so make sure the kind you are
using is safe for the surface you are using it on.
