still-sound 184. Scrubber
I saw a scrubber like this in a fancy design shop. It's made in Japan. I wanted to buy one because I both have a thing for cleaning products and for Japanese design. This scrubber seemed so natural and purposeful. It reminds me of a hedgehog.
I saw the same scrubber in a two-pack in a Japanese supermarket for a fraction of the price. The one in the design store came in nicer packaging. Nicer in that it looked authentic and special. Nice paper, nice writing. But once the packaging comes off, all the scrubbers are the same.
So far I've used it to scrub potatoes and to clean an iron skillet which I used to cook salmon. When not in use, it rests in a bowl I made, next to the sink.
