    The Science behind the shine

    • The Scotch-Brite™ Professional Brand family of products combines springy, non-woven polymers with various types of abrasive particles, in order to “tune” our scouring pads and scrubbers for specific cleaning tasks. And we utilize an advanced resin bonding system to help our products resist degradation from hot water and cleaning liquids, for longer life.

    • From wiping off counters to scouring out greasy pots and pans, these long lasting kitchen helpers are designed to make short work of your toughest cleaning chores – and give you a cleaner, brighter kitchen you can be proud of.
