Pros:Absorbent, many uses, heavy duty, durable, fits in my hands, easy grasp
The Bottom Line: A heavy duty, absorbent sponge that can be used on many items but will scratch if a lot of pressure is applied.
When we moved into our new home in March I had a lot of cleaning to do as the previous owners weren't fond of cleanliness. I am fond of it so I set about cleaning and/or hiring help on certain jobs I couldn't handle.
I loaded up on supplies from Walmart and began scrubbing away. One item I bought was Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Scrub Sponges. I figured I needed the heavy duty scrubber for bathrooms, cabinets (inside) and lighting fixtures. Once I started using them and saw how great they worked and held up, I started using them on certain pots and pans I used for cooking; such as aluminum pots.
Many years ago my mother gave me an aluminum pot for cooking pinto beans. This pot does stain over time but with a good sponge and Comet, my pot is shining again.
The cellulose sponge side is yellow and the non-woven laminated webbing on the other side is scratchy and quite sturdy. I've stuck the sponges in the dishwasher to clean/sanitize and have been able to use them several times before they started falling apart and were thrown away. The sponge part would start to break away before the scrubby side became soft but before that happened, I managed to get a lot of cleaning out of them.
When cleaning, I've used Krud Kutter, Comet and Bleach. Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge has helped remove soap scum, grime, built-up dirt in bathroom sinks, cabinets, drawers and rust stains in my kitchen sink. A lovely house was allowed to fall into a dirty mess and I've spent the last 4 months putting the shine back on it.
I had a lot of globes and light fixtures that needed delicate cleaning and these sponges were so easy to grasp and use that I was finished with them in no time.
I also used them to clean my outdoor furniture, window sills and doors.
It's a sponge on one side and a scrubber on the other. It's a good tool to help remove dirt and grime. It will scratch if a lot of pressure is applied so if you're cleaning built up dirt, scrub gently . I'd not use it on wood of any kind.
They do eventually wear out but I get my money's worth and think they're great sponges.
