Win A Year Supply Of SOS Pads #Giveaway

In 1917, a Wear-Ever Aluminum cooking utensil salesman by the name of Irwin Cox was looking for a way his customers could keep their new pans shining bright. His invention: a pre-soaped steel wool pad. The idea was born in the basement of Cox’s home by dipping steel wool balls into a hand-grade liquid soap and then allowing the pads to air dry. Cox’s wife called the pads SOS, which stood for “Save Our Saucepans.” The SOS Pads were so popular that Cox found himself with a hot new product line. A U.S. patent was issued for the concept in 1918 and the following year an investor group was formed in California to manufacture and sell the product. Almost 100 years later, SOS remains the number one problem-solver for America’s greasiest, grimiest, grungiest jobs.
We've been using SOS Pads in my family for generations. I remember as a kid having to do the dishes, and hated washing the pots and pans, unless I could use an SOS Pad, then it was easy, and I did not mind. We've also used them to shine and wash rims on our vehicles, to clean the outdoor grill, and even have used old SOS Pads (the steel wool) in craft projects! These things are awesome, and I hope they will still be around when Callan is an adult.
