I recently discovered that they adhere nicely to power sanding mandrels with H&L hooks . Great instead of steel wool pads and no left over fibers.

Yes, the color also indicates how course the abrasive is. I have found the maroon ones useful for woodworking.

They are great for cleaning up cast iron tops.

I still prefer soft sanding sponges for finishing work, but the Scotchbrite pads have lots of good uses.

I think that if we only knew all the uses for Scotchbrite pads we’d be amazed. I’ve used them for all of the uses above, and also for things like coarse air filters.

How many uses can you think of?
