A scouring pad or scourer is a small pad of metal or plastic mesh used for scouring a surface. Some scouring pads have one side made of a soft sponge-like material and the other is the aforementioned mesh.
Keeping this in view, how do you disinfect scouring pads?
Wash them with your laundry.Throw your sponges in with your other towels and rags and wash with hot water (and a little bleach). They might be kind of hard when you take them out — especially if you dry them in the drier — but they should be clean.
Additionally, will scouring pad scratch glass? A. No, this is not recommended, as the potential to scratch the glass is high. However, Brillo Estracell No Scratch Scrub Sponge with Wedge Edge and Brillo Steel Wool Soap Pads that still have plenty of soap throughout the pad can both be used to clean glass.
Subsequently, question is, can you use a scouring pad on stainless steel?
While not all cookware materials are dishwasher-safe, stainless steel typically is. Clean it gently. Lay off the steel wool, scouring pads, or harsh chlorine detergents, as they can scratch and penetrate the surface — although nylon-scrubbing pads are OK.
