Update: TreeHugger Jeff Nield reports that walnut shell scrubbies from 3M have been available for some time, and at a considerably lower price than Goodbye Detergent's. No word yet on whether those walnut shells in the Scotch-Brite Walnut Sponge by 3M are recycled.
I admit to two kitchen addictions - dish detergent that provides suds, and horror of horrors - steel wool impregnated with soap, similar to pads. Otherwise I'm using baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice for most tasks. But now over at the blog there's an alternative that actually looks like it could kill two addictions with just one product. scrubs and pads 'utilize the abrasive powers of recycled food remnants like ground peach pits, corn cobs and walnut shells to tackle household clean-up.' Now that is right up my alley...but will it treat my one non-stick pan kindly? Read on.

Spaghetti sponges, corn and peach
Goodbye Detergent designer Hiroki Hiyashi was looking for natural abrasives, and he found some great ones. The original spaghetti sponge is constructed of a corn cob powder skin, and is a bright, shimmering yellow, suitable for use in scouring stainless steel sinks and the outside of pans. The newer Spaghetti scrub is dark red, made from peach pit powder, and Goodbye Detergent says it removes stains from glass, wood, plastic, and yes, high quality nonstick pans. The older and new Spaghetti scrubs will be priced at $11 and $9 respectively. That's quite a lot for a scrubber - I would be willing to try one and hope for that price that it lasts as long as a box of , which usually takes a few months to go through for a fraction of the cost.
Crushed walnut shells for outdoor jobs
Goodbye Detergent also designed a scrub for outdoor tasks - scrubbing out flower pots, even scrubbing off old paint - made from crushed walnut shells. According to this web site, the products are rigorously tested and strong, as well as 100% recyclable and made from recycled ingredients, though recycling numbers and exact product ingredients aren't given at the web site.
