These are the best kitchen sponges~ not only are they great for dishes, but the reverse side serves as the solution to cleaning stains or spots that a regular sponge just cannot do. This is a plus for me, as it rules out the need to purchase Brillo or SOS pads. Like that they are coloful, and last for ages. Also great for bathroom tub cleaning, and anywhere you need a little more elbow grease! A great deal and worth every penny! I would recommend highly.
