The fall season is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. Besides pumpkin and apple everything, and cooler temps, baking some of my family’s favorite casserole dishes is a favorite of mine. I just love to break out of baking dishes and fill my home with the lovely scents of baked dishes. There is no better feeling than to be in a toasty home with the scents of baked cheese wafting throughout.
That is why the fall is the perfect time for baked casseroles like this Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pasta Bake.
Loaded with the flavors of a classic chicken alfredo dish, this twist on a classic is semi-homemade and so delicious.
The only part I don’t really love about fall cooking is all the dishes I accumulate. Making a pasta bake sadly equates to about 4 pans worth of mess. I am the type that likes to clean as I go, but I am only as efficient as the cleaning tools I use. Cheap sponges with no scrub surface do not fly in my kitchen.
I admit I am a Scotch-Brite™ Brand type of girl. Like my mom, I have always gravitated toward their various sponges and kitchen cleaning tools. Their Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Sponge and Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Sponge were my favorites until the Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots line came along.

Available at Walmart, the Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots line is available in many different products.
I purchased the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Sponge, Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponge, and the Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Dishwand.These were available in the Kitchen cleaning aisle near the other kitchen cleaning tools.
Besides the really cool look and feel, the Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots line actually serves a really useful purpose and will help make your dish doing chore much more fun, and efficient.
These sponge products feature Scrubbing Dots technology, which allows the sponges to scrub away messed fast, and rinse clean. I don’t know about you, but I despise a sponge that collects the food residue I am trying to clean up…super icky!
Thankfully, this line does not and depending on the type of sponge you buy, they can handle a variety of common kitchen messes.
The Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Sponge are green. These sponges are made for eliminating baked-on messes on pots, pans, and heavy-duty cookware.
The Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponge are blue. These sponges safely clean all cookware without scratching on non-stick cookware, counter, and cook tops.
I used the Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponge to clean the soiled casserole dish and it worked like a charm.
The residue scrubbed off quickly, and the sponge rinsed clean, fast! No caked on messes with this sponge!
