Brillo Estracell Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Brillo, we recently had the opportunity to review several awesome kitchen helpers!

About Brillo:
"Homemakers today visiting the cleaning aisle of their local retailer will find an exciting array of new products from Brillo including a whole new line of household cleaning products that brings together two of the industry’s leading brands for a new offering of products, Brillo Estracell Sponges. This new line of products from Brillo will feature a variety of Estracell more sanitary sponges including the Wedge Edge, the Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge, the Light Duty Scrub Sponge and the Sponge Wipe. Shoppers will also notice a new look for the company’s world-renowned soap pads, which will include more soap in each pad, new packaging and a return to the traditional pink soap for the original soap pads, and new yellow soap for the lemon scented soap pads.
To celebrate the return to pink, Armaly Brands has entered into a partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and will be donating five cents for each purchase of specially marked packages of Brillo products up to $50,000. Armaly Brands products are available nationwide at Walmart stores and other fine retailers."
The Wedge Edge is a multi-surface, no scratch scrub sponge that features a patent pending 30-degree angle shape that reaches deeper into hard-to-get-to corners and crevices. This uniquely shaped sponge features a multi-surface scrub material designed to clean most surfaces on one side, that is great for removing build up in hard to reach places on stoves, around sinks and backsplashes, bathrooms, non-stick grill tops and all around the home. The other side features an Estracell sponge which reaches in and easily wipes up dirt and food particles in those trouble areas that can be difficult for traditional sponges with 90-degree corners to reach.
The Sponge Wipe offers homemakers a new option for quick clean ups around the house. Made from Estracell material, these convenient, over-sized sponges wipe fast, rinse cleaner, and offer a more sanitary solution to help homemakers avoid cross contamination around the home. Whether they’re a traditional sponge, cloth or paper towel user, homemakers will appreciate the convenience and versatility of the Sponge Wipe.
Brillo® Steel Wool Soap Pads brings back classic soaps, original pink and yellow for lemon scent.

What we thought: We use steel wool on our pans and usually I just buy the cheapest brand, so I was super impressed with the amount of soap in Brillo's Pink Steel Wool Soap Pads! They worked really well. A tip to make your steel wool last longer without getting rusty...when you're finished using it, put it in a zipper bag in the freezer...it will be ready the next time you need it:) As for the sponges...we don't use sponges because they just seem like a breeding ground for germs. However, the Estracell sponges are more sanitary than ordinary sponges. I did like how large the sponges were and the Wedge Edge was perfect for getting in those hard to reach spaces:) I definitely like the Estracell Sponges more than ordinary sponges:) ABCD Diaries gives Brillo Pads and Estracell Sponges an A+!
Buy It: Find these great cleaning tools at your local grocery store...your purchase also helps support breast cancer research funding!
Win It: Brillo has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader 1 sampler prize pack that contains a box of Pink Brillo Steel Wool Pads, a pack of Estracell Sponge Wipes and a pack of Estracell Wedge Edge sponges! To enter, comment below!
