I think these sponges are just ok. They do the job but they're not super durable. I tend to get them since they are cheaper and when they are on sale since they get the job done. If you're scrubbing something really dirty, they will fall apart rather quickly.
Great sponges! The scrubber side is really rough, but it works well on pans and dishes. I like that the two sides don't separate after a few uses, like cheaper brands of sponges. They stay fairly clean for a good while--maybe a couple of weeks.
I swear by the Scotch Brite stay clean scrub sponge. These sponges always keep my plates and pots scratch free while cleaning perfectly. They are appropriately priced and you can usually find a coupon. I would recommend these to my friends.
These are about the only sponges I use. I can't stand when food particles get stuck in the sponge, YUCK! Even when cleaning peanut butter or eggs off of a container it rinses clean. I have a small stockpile and but whenever they're on sale
Scotch sponges help us with all of our cleaning needs with leaving scratches that other brands leave. They last longer without having to be thrown out, and are heavy duty. I have never had a sponge fall apart like I have with other brands.
