I was in the grocery store this evening and came across a sponge to wash dishes. I took a second look as I wanted to figure why it had a picture of walnuts on the package. After reading the package it did clearly say that on the sponge the tough scrub part was made with "Natural walnut shells" :shock: :shock: Why Why does it have to be everywhere.
I appreciate that it was clearly marked but please. This was by Scotch Brite. Now you have to be careful just to help wash dishes at someone else's house. I guess dishes should be of my to do list. :D

Oh wow - thanks so much! I would've never thought!

One thing that took me a while to realize was that I had two "scrubs" - one body scrub and one foot scrub - that were made of crushed walnuts and macademia shells respectively. :-( Of course they are gone now! I still get to use my peach pit scrub - thank goodness, lol.
