dish and pot scrubber

cow horn or horse hoof dish and pot scrubber

Everytime I do the dishes or clean the table, there are certain food "deposits" that can only be removed by the judicious use of my thumbnail (for scraping). How about a pot scrubber with a business end made from the very same substance? I'm thinking that since cow horns and horse hooves are basically made from the same stuff, they would do a great job scraping off the baked on lasagne (or whatever). Also, since it's relatively soft, it would do less damage to cookware than the alternative: steel knife or spoon. The implement could even be in the form of an oversized thumb.

       Wow - a sensable idea that could forseeably be baked. Bun for you, sir! [+]

       The scraping portion would biodegrade being made of a horses hoof, I don't want to scrape my dishes with a rotting fake thumb. A plastic or rubber scraper would be cheaper, easier to make, and not decompose in few months.
