I e-mailed the supplier and asked him. Got the wrong answer, but they find it difficult to lie in writing when asked direct. Price is often a reasonable indicator.

Otherwise use copper tubes abd stainess scrubbies :wink:

If it doesn't say ChoreBoy on the package.. they are suspect. The current product is made in Mexico. The ones made in USA some years ago were about twice as big as the newer ones. Copper is expensive and you can expect to spend $2/scrubber. BTW, I was a salesman for Boyle Midway when they owned Chore Boy and Chore Girl.
