Getting Rid Of Stubborn Grime With The Optima Proclean 10 Large Sponge Scourers
What do you look for in a sponge scourer? Different aspects are considered when settling on the preferred unit for your particular cleaning needs. First, there is the versatility. Kitchen cleaning is a task that involves numerous facets. From the dirty dishes that were soaked overnight, pots with grease deposits that have been burnt onto the surface, oven interiors with baked-on grime, to stovetops and BBQ grills that require attention- there’s plenty that needs to be done. Here, you want products that will provide an effective clean. Getting sponge scourers that can be useful for multiple applications will reduce the amount of money spent on the cleaning supplies, and the storage space taken up by the equipment. The durability of the product also comes into play. The kitchen is a busy environment and the cleaning tasks are carried out on a daily basis, meal after meal. For commercial kitchens and those running catering businesses, it's more intensive. You don’t want to be in a situation where your sponge scourers keep getting deteriorated after every other cleaning session, forcing you to make replacements. This would rack up your expenses, and not to mention the frustration that comes with working with dilapidated equipment. Going for products that have a tough build, designed for longevity, will be key in cutting down on costs incurred. What’s more, sponge scourers are not limited to kitchen cleaning. They can also be used for working on bathroom surfaces, especially when it comes to removing the soap and scum deposits on the fixtures and tiles. In this case, the units purchased are used exclusively for bathroom cleaning- since you don’t want to run the risk of cross contamination.
The sponge section of these units readily soak up excess liquids, and will be effective in holding the soapy water as you carry out the cleaning. At 14x9cm, these sponge scourers enable you to work on a large surface with each stroke you make. Note that you should rinse out the sponge scourer and allow it to dry after each cleaning session. The food particles trapped in it, plus the presence of moisture that has been absorbed by the structure, will encourage bacterial growth. A quick rinsing prevents this. In addition, the Optima Proclean 10 Large Sponge Scourers should be stored on a dry surface.
Getting rid of tough stains
The abrasive fibre of the Optima Proclean 10 Large Sponge Scourers comes in for the heavy duty cleaning, where a tough product is needed to remove those stubborn marks and baked on residue on the kitchen appliances and surfaces. The abrasive fibre cuts through the messes that are on your items, providing the scrubbing power needed for the task. You get a thorough clean done in a fraction of the time that you would have taken with the conventional products. You get all this without straining your kitchen cleaning budget, since the Optima Proclean 10 Large Sponge Scourers come at pocket-friendly prices.
Cleaning Your Sponge Scourers
You don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you’re working on your dishes with a sponge that is filled with germs, or dirt that clings to the abrasive fibres of the scourer side of the product, negatively affecting its scrubbing power. The units need to be cleaned in order to keep them in optimal operating condition. This can be done in different ways.
You can easily zap away the germs using your microwave. Saturate the sponge scourer in water, then put it in the microwave. You can use as little as quarter a cup for this. Close the microwave and heat it on high for 1 minute. This method also has a 99.9% success rate of killing the bacteria.
Use a dishwasher
Here, simply add your sponge scourer into the regular dishwasher load. Take it through a washing cycle, with a "heated dry" setting.
While this has a lower efficacy compared to the other cleaning methods, it will enable you to get rid of 99.6% of the germs in the unit. Simply soak the sponge scourer in pure vinegar, giving it a dwell time of 5 minutes. Rinse it, and allow it to dry. It will now be ready for use.
