I recently completed a four year stint in house without a dishwasher, and I’m confident I wouldn’t have survived it without Dobie sponges. These miraculous little sponges feature a scouring layer to make quick work of just about any kitchen mess, but they’re still safe for delicate items like nonstick pans. This 24-pack on Amazon typically sells for around $20-$24, but it’s currently marked down to an all-time low $12 (or $11 with Subscribe & Save) for some reason.
