I finally found a non-plastic scrub brush that I can use on dishes. I was so glad to find it, since I have been stalling on replacing my plastic scrubber that is looking tired—I've had it for well over a year!
The new scrubber is made of wood, a little bit of metal and natural bristles. I don't know the sources of these materials, but at least they can degrade eventually, unlike the plastic.
Here's the thing: I used the scrubber once and it already looks as tired as my year-old plastic version. I don't know how to quantify or rationalize which is a better choice, but it seems longevity should be a factor.
What do you use to scrub a crusty pan? Tell me by voting in the poll I've set up in the right sidebar. I don't know how to embed the poll into this post, so for now, it is over there. . . .
