This morning as I made eggs in a stainless steel skillet, I suddenly flashed back to when we used steel wool. I remembered that every kitchen had steel wool on the sink near the plain sponge but I can’t remember the last time I saw it. I bet if young people saw it they’d have no idea what it was, or that everyone used it to scour pots and pans and what a job that could be!
Then I remembered the Easy Off before it came in a spray and it had that useless little brush in the lid. And you cleaned everything else with Ajax/Comet or Pine Sol/Mr.Clean in water. Nothing foamed or scrubbed for you. It was all a lot of work!
Even the memory wore me out. I think everyone was thinner because everything was a lot of work.
