Hand Pads, Sponges and Cloths
Scouring greasy pans and cleaning up everyday spills and messes might be the last place you’d expect to find advanced technology at work. That’s why it might surprise you to learn that a lot of innovative 3M science goes into the design of our cleaning products, to take more of the drudgery out of kitchen cleanup.
It starts with design. Each Scotch-Brite™ Hand Pad is designed for maximum performance on a particular task. At the factory, mineral abrasives are uniformly distributed throughout the entire pad – not just coated on the surface – for better performance and longer useful life. The fibers are individually separated and coated, producing more consistent and high quality results.
Since the first Scotch-Brite products were introduced in 1958, we have never stopped looking for ways to make them more effective and useful in more kinds of cleaning applications. This ongoing commitment to innovation is why Scotch-Brite is one of the leading brands in cleaning products today. Got a tough cleanup chore? Let us give you a hand!
The Scotch-Brite Professional 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. For example:
Scotch-Brite™ General Purpose Scouring Pad 96
scours 2 to 5 times faster and is 2 to 3 times more durable than comparable non-3M pads.
Scotch-Brite™ Power Pad 2000
scours 2 to 4 times faster than conventional commercial scouring pads, and is 6 to 10 times less abrasive than other conventional commerical scouring pads.
