A lot of folks mentioned chemicals in the pad. Also watch out for abrasives.
You are wise to try it on a piece of scrap glass.

Our 120g tank has a whole bunch of scratches and cloudy areas (lots of fine
scatches) from trying to save a few cents by getting large scrubbing pads at
the grocery instead of the high priced pads from aquarium suppliers.
