Steel wool is a very versatile material that can be used for cleaning and polishing metals, wood and plastic. Steel wool is made by shaving threads of steel from a thick soft steel wire.
Apart from cleaning, steel wool also has other uses such as keeping mice and rats away. Rats and mice will become very ill after eating coarse steel wool. Also steel wool can easily catch flame from a spark or 9v battery even when wet and is very useful in emergency situations.
