I ordered some of these too.

I have one of these plastic scrapers. Works well for the harder jobs and
doesn't damage non-stick surfaces.

Just remember that they aren't super abrasive. They are best for
removing leftover stuff when you're doing dishes, but if it's caked on they
may not do the trick. So I still keep my abrasive stuff around for
the harder jobs, I just don't use them nearly as much. They really keep
that stuff from gunking up.

This Dollar Tree did not have the silicone scrubby.
However, yesterday, I did find a Dollar Tree that did, and got two.

Me too. All my other dish scrubbers are exactly as you describe Scott.
Yucky! I don't know if our various dollar stores will carry them, but here,
even though their names are slightly different, they seem to carry a lot of
the same merchandise.

If and when anyone goes to the Dollar Store (Dollar Tree, specifically,
although maybe at the others?) and you're in the kitchen section, and you
see a silicone scrubby that looks like this:
Get it. You and your dishes will be so happy.
I used to use sponges with a sort of soft-ish steel-wool-ish substance
on one side, or sometimes those tomato-sized things made of plastic wire,
to remove stuff from dishes when doing them by hand. They work great...
for a couple of dishes, and then stuff starts to accumulate in the
steel-woolish stuff, or the plastic tomato gets all slimy and gucky, and so
on. The sponges are too disgusting to use within a few days to maybe a
week (if it's been a slow week). The plastic things work longer, but they
get greasy super quick and are overall just unpleasant.
Not those silicone scrubbies! Holy Cow no. That scrubby above? I've
been using that scrubby, without cleaning it, for WEEKS. I just yanked it
off my sink top and took a picture right now. Didn't even rinse it.
*Nothing sticks to it.* NOTHING. It's not super abrasive - it's not
steel wool - but it's abrasive enough. Those little nubbies on there
really do take gunk off the dishes, but the gunk doesn't stick to the
nubbies! And it doesn't even get greasy. I bought it months ago, and,
yes, I *have *run it through the dishwasher, but mostly because I feel
like I *should*, and never because I feel like I actually *have to*.
It *always *looks and feels new, like I just took the wrapper off of
it, even after an intense session with my instant pot liner.
One dollar. So totally worth it I can't even.
