Anyway, instead of buying steel wool for serious scrubbing, try wadding up a small ball of aluminum foil. Just use your dishsoap like normal and scrub with your foil ball!
I also read online that foil is a good tool to remove rust.
I like this idea to avoid purchasing steel wool and for a tool when you're in a pinch. However, I am not a fan of using disposable products on a regular basis, so I will reserve this one for really tough scrubbing.
Does anyone else remember this famous foil ball?
