Saving Money on SOS Pads

Tips for saving money on SOS pads.

I like to use a clean SOS pad every time I need one but often find that they are too large to really use up each time. I pre-cut all the pads in the box into quarters, using scissors. Each piece is a good size for my needs and I can toss the used quarter away without feeling it is wasteful.

Whenever I purchase a box of S.O.S Pads, I immediately take a pair of scissors and cut each pad into halves. After years of having to throw away rusted, unused and smelly pads, I finally decided that this would be much more economical. And now a box of S.O.S pads last me indefinitely! In fact, I have noticed that the scissors get sharpened this way!

I keep a plastic cup in my freezer for storing used pads. As soon as I'm finished with a pad, I shake it out a bit and put it in the cup. I've had some pads last for over a year, and I end up using the pads before they ever rust.

I have done this for years,I always hated seeing old yucky used SOS pads lying around my kitchen and such. I also found that this extended the life of a box of pads,sure lasted a lot longer.

Your used soapy steel wool pads will not rust if you set them on a small square of aluminum foil! Try it! Save your freezer space for food!

I tried cutting the SOS Pads, it saves money and throwing the pads away. It also sharpens the scissors.
