A good, long lasting sponge. Has a soft side for gently wiping off junk from your dishes and a harder more abrasive side for scrubbing the harder to get off junk. Though I'd still recommend soaking dishes before scrubbing them.
I have tried using the sponges that claim they don't get messes stuck in them.. But I keep going back to these sponges because they are so much more durable. And it is not hard to get things like eggs out of the sponges anyway.
This is the sponge that I use regularly because it helps me get all of the tough grime that sticks to my dishes. I usually buy this product from Target or Walmart. This sponge is a great value and lasts for a pretty long time.
I like using this on my pans it really helps get the job done. I must say that they do run through pretty fast and they don't last long but I like them. They're not flimsy like other ones similar to then that I've tried.
