The original spaghetti scrub

These interesting scrubs have natural abrasives for your scrubbing needs.
What do we mean by natural? How about corn cobs and peach pits?

No detergent is needed for general cleaning but a tiny dab of soap can be used if tackling heavy grease. Keep in mind that a little dab can go a long way because these scrubs will stay very soapy and the peach and corn abrasives are effective on their own.

Spaghetti Scrubs last for months and because of their unique shape, they’re pliable enough for trickier cleaning jobs and tight spots such as corners, whisks, and behind faucets. The best part is they dry quickly and completely so there’s never a stinky or moldy sponge in your sink. After you’re done cleaning, just rinse them, and hang on the faucet to dry.




  • Reusable scrubs last for months
  • Unique pliable shape
  • Great for peeling vegetables
  • Lack of mold and bacteria
  • No smell or rust
  • Save money and the environment by reducing the need for soaps

I was sent, and given the opportunity to test, the Original Spaghetti Scrub - made from Corn, Coarse as well as the Original Spaghetti Scrub, Gentle - made from Peach Pits.





Kitchen cleaning pads

In addition to the Spaghetti Scrubs, I was also sent a couple of different kitchen cleaning pads.  I was sent one heavy duty kitchen cleaner - made from natural alumina, as well as a kitchen cleaning pad for enamel - made from pumice stones

Take care of your cookware, appliances, and the environment by using these kitchen cleaning pads.
You spent a lot of money on your pans and appliances. Don't ruin your cookware and appliances with harsh chemicals and rusty steel pads!

Say goodbye to detergents because none is needed for general scouring, polishing, and removing minor stains. If you do want to use a little soap or cleaner, go right ahead, but only a little is needed because the natural abrasives will do the rest.
  • Reusable
  • All kitchen cleaning pads except for Heavy Duty have a scrubbing side and a sponge side
  • Stainless steel cleaning pad is perfect for all stainless steel kitchen appliances and even great on granite countertops
  • Use less detergent

Kitchen tools 

Finally, I was sent a kitchen scraper used for scraping bowls, pans, sinks, and work surfaces, as well as scraping away food and oil residue; reduce the use of detergents and conserve water.

My review

I used both of the spaghetti scrubbers against two sinks full of dishes!  I used the gentle on the more easily cleanable dishes and the yellow coarse scrubber to my caked on food, as well as the pots and pans.  I really liked both of them.  They remind me of the stainless steel scrubbers, but much easier to grasp and a lot less painful! LOL.  They were able to tackle all of my dirty dishes with ease and I was highly impressed!  I really like them, along with the fact that they are made of sustainable organic products!






I used the scraper on the food processor when preparing baby food and making sure that I got every last bit!  It worked as well as you'd hope it would for its purpose.

The kitchen cleaning pad was AWESOME!  It bore through some extremely tough stains and burns and cleared it all right up!  That was amazing!

Finally......

I was so excited to have tried this product and familiarize myself with the Roland companies - this company and their sister companies, Fabrikators and Drosselmeyer.  

Fabrikators carries these amazing vegetable scrubbing gloves called Skrub'a that I would love to try, considering how much homemade baby food I make, as well as some very innovative toddler cutlery!  Drosselmeyer is known for their nutcrackers - great for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  Very trendy and modern! 

I seriously am going to go buy the scrubbing gloves next and then when we get into the new house, the spaghetti scrubber holder for the sink!

Make sure to go and check these guys out!!
