Copper Scourers – Why I Love Them
Copper Scourers to the rescue!
While I love a clean kitchen (and house), I have to say, washing up is not one of my favourite tasks. However, I can’t escape it . 😉
I am always mindful of what actually goes down the drain – I want my ecological footprint to be as small as possible.
What I do is use natural synthetic-fragrance-free detergent, along with sodium bicarbonate, Bamboo Microfibre Cloths and my trusty Copper Scourer. Then working in stages with getting things clean… Not eating meat means things are a lot less messy anyway.
If I can’t get it off with the detergent and cloth, then I let it sit, and try again.
If there is still no progress, I use sodium bicarbonate with a well-wrung cloth and give it a scrub.
Yet again, if there is no joy, I then reach for my scourer.
We don’t have non-stick pans, but if you do, make sure that you don’t use your scourer on them – they will scratch.
What I love about them? They are copper, and thus won’t rust; and are easy to rinse clean after use.
NOTE: I have noticed that they don’t wear as well as a steel scourer, and do need replacing more frequently… which is why this 2-pack is great!

Whilst these are gentler than other scourers, they have the potential to scratch. Do not use them on non-stick surfaces, cars, and other similar items.
