Vileda Heavy Duty 3 in 1 Scourer Road Test

When it comes to pots, pans and the stove top, a good scourer is an under the sink essential – a messy sauce or burnt on food is almost impossible to remove without it.

With the Vileda Heavy Duty 3 in 1 Scourer being introduced in a 24 pack at the Vileda eBay store in the near future, we were keen to try it out on a pot of cooked-on scrambled eggs.

This is where I noticed new products like the Vileda Naturals range are making the cleaning process as green as possible. All materials used are of natural origin, from renewable components and recycled resources, ensuring the effect of cleaning on the environment is as friendly as possible. (more…)
