Please I Am In Search Of A 'steel Wool' For A Project Work by Teophilus96(m): 9:38am On Apr 07
Good morning everyone. I know this is not the right section. I also know that this is the most active section in this forum and I'm really desperate in knowing where to get a steel wool for my school projet.

I have gone round the whole of Owerri, but I still can't find it. Someone here said I will find it in a mechanic workshop but I couldn't. I have shown so many mechanics the picture of the steel wool but they find it hard to identify what it is as they claim to have never seen it before.

Some other persons said it can be found in the exhaust part of a car and so I went to the exhaust line of the market place but I still could not find it.

Please I'm really tired, frustrated and stressed out and time is ticking on. Can someone please tell me where I can get a steel wool.

Ah we call it kan kan onirin in yoruba
Go to these women that sells pot, or sponge in the market, or just go to the market and ask for where to get an iron sponge, when you get there you will tell them its the soft one,you should identify it easily

Exactly as I thought. But the Kan kan onirin is the iron sponge in english. Iron sponge is mainly made of iron while steel wool is an alloy of both iron and carbon and some other elements (in small quantity). The.Steel wool.is different from the Kan kan onirin.

I really have the conviction that the iron sponge is actually the steel wool the name(iron sponge) may be misleading.

I looked up for it on Amazon and below is a picture of what I saw. And this is exactly an iron sponge.

This is a steel wool. If you look at it it's also called the Iron sponge meaning that they are both the same. The name Iron sponge is an incorrect name we all call and it's misleading

Please can someone verify if my claim is true as to wether what we call iron sponge (kan kan onirin in yoruba) is actually the steel wool?
I will really be grateful embarassed embarassed

Ok if what we call the iron sponge is the same as steel wool, then getting it won't be a problem anymore.

But the question is, are they the same thing based on the picture I've provided so far?
