I typically buy the O-Cel-O light duty scrub sponge. I prefer a sponge to have both the regular sponge and the scrubber side. These sponges work great and they last a long time, especially for what I put them through. I use bleach on them, microwave them. I don't like germs. They scrub baked on things off well. They dry quickly and lather perfectly. I love the cool colors and designs too. They are bright and cheery. The cost is comparable to other sponges and is a good value for the quality. I do have to say that the scrub side peels off with the more things I use bleach on but this has never stopped me from buying them. So far they are my favorite.
