Texture depends on water temperature. Not all “cold” water is the same!
When you need a coarse or firm texture, try immersing Scrub Daddy with a few ice cubes in a bowl of water. And you can keep a Scrub Daddy in the fridge or freezer so a coarse scrubber is always at your service.
Scrub, NOT SCOUR
It can remove debris from a surface without damaging or scratching. Some stains and residues, especially if carbonized (blackened), may prove resistant to Scrub Daddy at normal temperatures. You may want to try a very cold Scrub Daddy with a detergent.
Keep in mind that some household cleaners contain abrasives or chemicals that can damage surfaces. Always test on a small inconspicuous area first.
Food and other particles do not stick to the material although some may become lodged in the pores. You can usually flush them out by simply squeezing and massaging repeatedly under warm running water for 30 seconds.
You can wash Scrub Daddy in the laundry or dishwasher. Depending on humidity, it dries in a few hours sitting out on the counter (faster if standing on edge).
Please keep in mind that a cold, firm Scrub Daddy will scratch your skin! Start with warm water for a soft texture. You can use cooler water for a firmer texture as you go along, adjusting the temperature gradually to avoid excessive abrasion. Test on a small area of your skin before you proceed.
A torn or crumbly Scrub Daddy is ready for retirement, or you may want to send it to the garage or workshop for items such as lawn furniture and car wheels.
