Chore Boy is a brand name for a coarse scouring pad made of steel wool, copper wool or non-metallic terry cloth and all-purpose sponges.[1] It is ideal for cleaning BBQ grills, cookware, glassware, oven racks and stove burners. [2] During the first half of the 20th century, the product was marketed under the name Chore Girl.

Copper Scrubbers[edit]

Chore Boy copper scrubbers are made of 99.997% pure copper. Mineral oil is used to draw, spool, and unspool the copper wire. In addition, it helps to make the manufacturing process easier and protects the wire from scratches during use. These scrubbers are recommended for cleaning copper and aluminum cookware, broiler pans, barbecue grills, stove burners, and oven racks.

Stainless Steel Scouring Pads[edit]

Chore Boy stainless steel scouring pads are recommended for cast iron, indoor and outdoor grills, workshop, and tools.

You can also use them to clean vegetables. They are treated with an abrasive, some binder, and a colorant.

Chore Boy by Jannie Edwards[edit]

Chore Boy is a book written about the Great Depression during the 1930s. It's a fictional depiction of a young boy working on a farm.[4]

Used as Drug Paraphernalia[edit]

In the American drug-using community, especially in more urban areas, copper scouring pads are also used as a makeshift component in do-it-yourself crack cocaine pipes.[5] Utilized in this context, a small wad of the copper wool (the steel variety will not suffice for this purpose) is inserted into the end of a short cylindrical glass tube (sometimes called a "straight shooter") and serves to function as a screen and/or a matrix by which the melting freebase can be thoroughly dispersed across the large surface area of the bronze wool.
