Longer-Lasting Steel Wool

It's always bugged me that steel wool pads don't last longer. Each pad is made of thousands of sharp-edged steel strands. The problem is, they're packed together so tightly they clog up l ight away and most of them never get used.

I'm a die-hard tightwad, so I came up with this trick to extend the life of my steel wool. I unroll each pad and shape it into a fluffy ball before 1 use it. As the ball gets flattened, I stop and gently pull it back apart. Re-fluffing exposes new sharp edges and releases wood dust and broken-off bits of worn-out steel wool.
