MSR Alpine dish brush & scraper
« on: April 02, 2018, 05:42:55 pm »
I usually take a piece of green scouring pad on trips, but they always end up clogged with gunk & make a mess in your pans, so I bought this for my last trip.

Works well & between the scraper & the brush it handles the remains of the morning porridge with no problems.

Looks good.  I tend to use a Mk 1 washing up sponge, but those get a bit manky if it's more than a weekend, especially if they're spending most of the time in a ziplock bag to contain the dampness.

Sponge only needs to be kept in a bag if you're moving on, surely? If you're spending a couple of days in one place, for instance Long Itch style,* it can just stay in or with the pans. Arguably, if you only ever use your pots for boiling water (whether for hot drinks or to cook veg etc), then you can get away with not washing up at all (this approach is not recommended at home).

*Is it style?

Oh, yes.  I was thinking touring, rather than staying-in-one-place camping, where it can dry out in much the same way as it would at home.

I've been using those for years, they're excellent.

It's the new technology. :)

Inspired by this review I kept an eye out for one of these, and managed to pick one up a couple of months ago.  Thanks Andrew, my touring cookset is now less stinky due to the absence of a permanently damp scourer  :thumbsup:
