Parade Picks Scrub Daddy, the Scrigit Scraper, and Nine other Cleaning Products to Make Your Life Easier
Every week, the Sunday Parade magazine includes Parade Picks that features their favorite products in a specific category. Parade’s website features more content than can be included in the print edition, including more Parade Picks.
A recent article features 11 of their favorite spring cleaning products that “make it easy (and, dare we say, FUN!) to get your house shining from top to bottom, inside and out.” Of course, all of these products are very handy for cleaning throughout the year.
The original round yellow Scrub Daddy sponge with the smiley face is the first product featured. This versatile sponge is made from a unique plastic that provides soft scrubbing in warm to hot water and more abrasive scrubbing in colder water, such as for tougher cleaning jobs like oven racks. Originally featured on ABC Television’s Shark Tank. the Scrub Daddy and its many subsequent variations is an excellent home cleaning tool.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
Another sponge for somewhat different applications is the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. The sponge dampened with water is amazingly effective at cleaning fingerprints and grime off of painted walls and woodwork.
While these two sponges are great for cleaning household surfaces with water and liquid cleaners, sometimes you need a tool for smaller cleaning tasks and getting into corners, edges and tight spaces. The Parade Picks article includes the versatile Scrigit Scraper cleaning tool for such tasks as removing adhesive stickers and scraping off spots of dried food, drips of candle wax, and accumulated grime from surfaces, grooves and along edges.
The handy pen-shaped tool features two different types of scraper blades. The rounded tip is shaped like a fingernail but is much more durable. It can also get into tight spaces that your fingernails could not reach. In addition, the flat tip provides more versatility for cleaning flat surfaces and along edges, such as in the kitchen and bathroom where grime accumulates. This Scrigit blade is much better at cleaning surfaces than a screwdriver of kitchen knife because it won’t scratch most household surfaces.
Wet & Forget
If you live in a part of the country with high summer humidity that promotes the growth of mold, mildew and green algae on the siding of your house, you’ll love another product mentioned in the article. Wet & Forget is a very easy way to remove mold, mildew and algae from your siding, deck and sidewalks and does not contain chlorine bleach. All you have to do is spray it on. In a few days, the the green algae and other growing substances will turn gray. Rain and wind will eventually clean off what is left. Or you can do a quick power wash to speed up the process. In addition, Wet & Forget will keep the siding clear of mold, mildew and algae much longer than power washing alone. A refresher spray several months after the first spray and then in subsequent years will keep the siding free from algae, mold and mildew.
