Summer Messes and How to Cleanup with Scotch-Brite™

One of the best parts of summer is the ability to spend most of your time outdoors, basking in the shine of the sun. Unfortunately, the more summer fun you have, the more mess you’ll have too. With the following tips, tricks, and tools from Scotch-Brite™, you’ll be able to stay ahead of the most common and delicious summer messes.

1. Melted Popsicles

Keep a reusable Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge handy, to quickly wipe away any juicy popsicle residue and keep your surfaces looking clean, again and again. After your clean, place your sponge in the dishwasher to clean for reusing.

2. Grill Gunk

BBQs and summer go together like the 4th of July and fireworks. But if your grill isn’t clean, it’ll be hard to keep your food tasting good. With a Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge, you can easily keep your grill gunk-free all summer long. It's easy. After each cookout, wait till your grill cools, then with a bucket of warm soapy water, use --the scrub side of the sponge to remove stuck on food. With 3X the scrubbing power, you can easily get in between the grill grates, and scrub clean with less effort.

3. Marshmallow Roasting Sticks

There’s nothing like sitting around a campfire on a summer night, telling tall tales, scary stories, and roasting marshmallows for the perfect s’more. But while it’s okay to re-use stories, it’s certainly not okay to re-use marshmallow roasting sticks that still have s’more from a time before. Scrub away these sticky stuck-on messes with a Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge. The powerful scrubber side gets the gooey burnt on marshmallow free, while the sponge side wipes away any remaining residue. This multi-purpose tool will keep your marshmallow roasting sticks clean and always ready to use so you can continue listening to stories already told and creating memories that’ll never get old.
