Beat sponges ever. They don't fall apart when you try to scrub something that's difficult or caked on. They have a really long life and can be thrown in the dishwasher to clean. These are the only ones I ever use
I buy these all the time to clean my dishes and absolutely live them. It helps get all the residue off the dishes. I also began using them to clean my counters, fridge and stove top and the work wonderfully.
