If you’ve ever found yourself knee-deep in dishes, only to discover you’ve misplaced or lost your pot scrubber, this is the tip for you!

When it comes to getting burned, sticky or dried-up residue off of your flatware and pans, there’s nothing like a metal pot scrubber. Yet these convenient kitchen helpers tend to wear out and get lost. If you’ve only just noticed its absence while you’re elbow-deep in the washing up, what’s a person to do?

Wad up some aluminium foil instead! Grab a generous handful of ‘tinfoil’ and ball it up loosely. This can easily be used in place of your traditional scourer. It also makes for an easy, sweat-free way to clean up grills, tongs and braai paraphernalia too. When you’re done, simply toss it in the bin.

Never spend hours (and dish sponges) scrubbing futilely again- simply reach into your drawers and carry on being awesome.
