Good old S.O.S. steel wool soap pads. Here in an ad from 1941:
And then also pictured here in this magazine advertisement from 50 years ago - "teen-agers quickly learn the trick of breezing through the pans" with the help of S.O.S. pads. I wouldn't mind having their PINK dish drainer! Or those pink Melmac dishes.
I'm calling the package pictured below "Now", but in reality it's about 15 years old. I know. Well, it was up on a shelf in the garage. I picked up a box at the store to buy it, and my husband said we didn't need it. Who knew? The current packaging now has all of the text in both English and Spanish.
When I actually READ (what a novel idea!) the recommended uses on the package, it suggested using them on glass shower doors. Where have I been? I tried it, and they worked very well. Like I said, good old S.O.S. pads!
