Is there a national shortage? Tesco and Sainsbury's seem to have re-stocked with pathetic Spongtex offereings - and the Vileda Active Wave is the ONLY effective non-scratch scourer, IME!

Anyone seen them in stock anywhere else?

Bumping..I've been looking for them too.

oh i have a new thing of great wonder from peter jones. it is a reusable scouring pad, made of net and pads. it cost £4 and i love it. in washing machine now so cannot find its name.

I haven't been able to get them for a couple of months, it's irritating that I find it irritating. My inner teen is dying of shame grin

Blu Sun 13-Apr-08 22:04:03

I am SO relieved it isn't just me anxious about them!

perhaps we should all write letters asking for them to be stocked?

Will look out for the John Lewis upstart pretender of a scoourer, but I'll take some convincing!

My DP is obsessed with those Vileda scourers, whenever he sees them he stockpiles! I'll ask him where he got the last lot.

Blu Mon 14-Apr-08 13:28:52

Oh, yes please, Bluestocking!

I have stockpiled them in a mini way before becfause I have noticed gaps in supply.

I saw this the other day because I'd been looking too and I found some today in Wilkinsons grin

Robert Dyas.

My local Waitrose stopped selling them months ago, will take myself off to RD. TQ.

Blu Thu 17-Apr-08 12:48:58

OK - will seek out a Robert Dyas...

Quite a way to RD for me, and they don't have them on their website. Can people report back where they find them please? Dh is another one obsessed by them, and we are on our last one.

I bagged some in Sainsbos over the Easter hols but I do wonder if the writing is on the wall as Ocado have discontinued them too. And, as everyone says, they really are the best around. Am so relieved to hear of other dps being obsessed with them, I thought it was just mine...

WendyWeber Thu 17-Apr-08 13:10:53

I don't know these particular ones, Blu, but you can get cellulose sponge scourers at Lidl & Sainsbos - the yellow or orange ones with green backs.

(I think they are the same as the pathetic Spongtex ones though so maybe not good enough)

I am shock at all these DPs who care what they wash up with grin

Blu Thu 17-Apr-08 16:44:53

ww - it's not the cellulose-ness of them, it's the scratchy plastic scourer side.

I haven't given up hope, though, because they have disappeared fro long periods before.

Oh why oh why couldn't DP have stockpiled Vileda scourers instead of bloody Ecover washing-up liquid???

saltire Thu 17-Apr-08 16:48:33

Have you tried Wilkinsons? I got some in there about 2/3 weeks ago

Blu Thu 17-Apr-08 16:51:18

this is the object of desire

saltire Thu 17-Apr-08 16:52:07

That's a mop smile

Blu Thu 17-Apr-08 16:52:45

Oh, sorry - it doesn't link to the actual scourer. Choose products / wash and wipe / / active wave / scourers / foam backed

saltire Thu 17-Apr-08 16:54:55

Yes they are the ones I saw in Wilkinsons. they had loads.

Blu Thu 17-Apr-08 16:55:07

Yes, Saltire - domestically innattentive i may be, but i can recognise a mop! wink

Blu Thu 17-Apr-08 16:57:26

OK - have looked at Wilkinson's Store Locator and will have to send Batters to Epsom for some. She likes going to epsom

saltire Thu 17-Apr-08 16:59:51

Well if she can't get any, let me know and I will have a look in Wilkinsons in town on Monday and get you some and post them. CAT me if she can't get them

Blu Thu 17-Apr-08 17:03:41

oh, Thank you, Saltire - you are a star!

Thay are actually available from Wilkinson's online, so iI might invest in a huge lot and avoid this sort of anxiety in the future!
