In my kitchen there’s nothing better and usually more happily received than a big old pan of cheesy goodness! Whether its lasagna, baked tortellini dishes or homemade mac and cheese…if there’s a boatload of cheese and it’s baked on there all ooey-gooey, chances are it’ll be a hit. When zucchini season rolls around each year I like to find some new ways to use it in entrees. And this year I decided to try some yummy Cheesy Zucchini Roll-Ups for the family and let me tell you, they turned out wonderfully.

Bonus, they are simple to prepare and you’ll have them on the table in roughly 45 minutes, so that’s not too bad either. My family thoroughly enjoyed them and I thought you would too!

I did have that eye-roll moment though when I took a look at pan after they’d cooked. It was a mess, baked on sauce and bubbled on cheese which although tasty in this recipe aren’t my favorite things to scrub off while doing dishes.

Luckily though I had a secret weapon (or not so secret after I share with you) that I’d recently picked up at my local Kroger store. So I quickly pulled it out of the cabinet and tried it out. Wanna know what I used? Sure you do! I used a Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth, yes Scotch-Brite!

You can feel the power of these quality dish cloths as soon as you touch them. They have powerful non-scratch scrubbing dots which takes cleaning to a whole new level. I found these new dish cloths at Kroger in the dish cleaning aisle, you’ll find them in 1 pack and 2 pack varieties in colors including: grey, mint, tan and navy. I chose tan and it ties in nicely with my sink area.

There’s a great offer right now at Kroger too! The offer is for $1 off a 1 pack and $1.50 off a 2 pack of the dish cloths. The Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth is also machine washable, so you can use it over and over again. Friends, please tell me I’m not the only person who gets excited at the grocery store finding new household products? I can’t be alone in this excitement, right?

With the incredible 2 in 1 cleaning power of the Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth I easily cleaned up a messy stove-top from prepping the Cheesy Zucchini Roll-ups! Because lets face it, messes happen all the time while cooking!

Just 3 easy steps to a clean stove-top!

  • Wet Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth with water.
  • Wipe down surface with scrubbing dot side. Those scubbing dots easily scrub away dried messes. 
  • Rinse Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth in water. Use other side to wipe away water and dry stove-top. And DONE!

Doesn’t get much easier cleaning up a stove-top, messes don’t stand a chance!
