Korean Dish Scrubbie: Mt. Dew
Do The Dew! It's the nectar of the gods...if the gods were Honey Boo Boo Child and Kelly's great uncle Vernon. Originally made in the 1940s as a lemon-lime whiskey chaser by two Tennesseans who liked to party. Named "Mountain Dew" in tribute to the southern backwoods slang for moonshine and the founders' home brewing experiments. Although it's taken many forms over the years since its birth (Code Red, Voltage, Baja Blast), nothing will ever compare to the Original.
As nuclear in its ingredients as it is in its color, it it will always hold a special place in our hearts as our favorite accompaniment to after-school fried bologna sandwiches.
Details: In Korea, many people use special yarn (called susemi yarn) to hand-crochet sponges for washing dishes. These "scrubbies" last longer than regular sponges and can be thrown in the dishwasher or laundry if they get gnarly from food and grease. You can also soak them in hot water to get them fresh and clean. The other great thing is that they foam up really well, which saves on soap.
