I also have great memories of making an aluminum cook kit flat out shine
with SOS pads. I have tried to introduce my Scouts to this. However:
1) They've never seen an SOS pad before,
2) They've never had to wash a pan out at home, and
3) They are totally, absolute unused to the amount of physical effort it
takes to do the job right.
I also have had to teach the boys how to wipe down a table. Two Scouts who
were assigned to wipe down a picnic table were found, a few minutes later,
dabbing at the table with wet paper towels and cold water. Trust me,
folks, they weren't putting me on. They had never had to do it before.
