How to scrub your pot with a Walnut

by Mar 15, 2020Blog, Featured Blog

It was Annie’s turn to clean up after the delicious Dirty Millet, and grilled Salmon with Pistachio Pesto Sauce LJ made for their afternoon meal. “Boy,” she thought, “this is a whole lotta I gotta clean up.” She loaded the dishwasher and popped a Grove Collaborative dishwasher detergent pack in and started it. “Now, I can tackle the pots.” As she began scrubbing, LJ, who was watching her and enjoying a glass of wine, said, “I’ve got to admit the millet recipe did turn out well, and I think I want to use the pistachio pesto recipe the next time we have a dinner party. What is that you’re using on the pots?” “It’s a scrubber made out of walnuts.” “I believe in saving the earth too, but how’s a walnut supposed to get a pot clean?” “Sweetheart, it works very well for being non-abrasive.

Much of their merchandise is reusable, like the paper towels made of bamboo, and there are several concentrates like Mrs. Meyers Multi-Surface cleaner. You mix only a ¼ cup of it with a gallon of water. Also, because of their re-occurring ordering program, you can set the calendar for the items you want and the delivery date.” “Ok, well, you’ve got my attention. So you’re saying Grove Collaborative products help reduce our carbon footprint and save money?” “Yes, babe, it’s past time for us to pay attention to what we are using and throwing away every day. We can do better by using Grove Collaborative’s environmentally friendly household and personal care products in our house.
