i used to be a fan of those brushes with the built in soap dispenser but i found that the nature of it made it hard to manoeuvre because it's essentially a rod and so it became a nuisance. then i switched to steel wool and steel wool that pretends to not scratch surfaces but all steel wool scratches surfaces so i ruled that out. i used the scotch spongepads but i didn't like the abraisive side of it at all so now i've switched to a sponge-cloth thing that's basically a washcloth made out of sponge and i really like it because it's versatile and and easy to clean and long lasting

Depends on the dish, and what I have to clean off it.

I don't actually have any non-stick pots or pans, so anything stubborn on those is steel wool right away.

Pretty much. Except I do have non-stick pans so for those I just use a sponge

because some people use steel wool on everything and it bothers me

I use scotch brite knockoffs because they're gonna get filthy pretty quick anyway so I don't want to pay any more than I have to for a sponge. same goes for most cleaning supplies I use, actually: if I can't get it at a Chinese hardware store i have to think about whether i really need it

i need the rough side to clean the inside of my rice cooker pot and baking trays, but everything else does fine with the smooth side.

I have a bottle brush for my water bottles and blender and brita pitcher but i don't use it often

I prefer the sponges that have the scrubbing side

Also steel wool is terrible. I wouldn't even use it on cast iron, unless I was restoring an old, rusted pan or something.

I mostly use those plastic scrubber things:



Unless the cast iron skillets are really gunked up and the plastic stuff isn't working. Then I use these:



and after drying them wipe the bottom down with a little oil using a paper towel and stick it in the oven for a while.

No guitar player should ever wash dishes by hand. None. Ever. This is the correct answer.

My hands do 90% of the work without needing a sponge/scraper.

Let the dishes soak in hot water for 15-30 minutes, makes them much easier to clean.

tbh the thing that has worked best for me is a proper washsink. I prefer something that is deep enough that I can soak dishes in hot soapwater for a period of time before scrubbing, and it is optimal to have another deep sink beside it to rinse everything off in without it getting gross/cold pretty quickly.

at the bakery, we would keep steel wool for dire situations but avoid it unless absolutely necessary.
we had a huge supply of these sponges, which we'd keep 2 or 3 of in rotation at all times so that one was softer (more used) and one was more rough.


I don't like those dual-sided sponges because they deteriorate quickly. we would keep a washcloth in the soapwater for anything that needed a very soft/fine surface. a brush with a nob can be helpful for getting inside of containers or brushing off dry debris, but otherwise it strains your wrist and doesn't give you much of a finish.
