These weren't my favorite type. I tried these after really enjoying the no-scratch sponge by Scotch. Food residue seems to stick to these and it's impossible to clean a dish with a dirty sponge. Not my favorite. I would not recommend.
These sponges are catchy to the eye. I bought them because of the purple. They clean well enough, and are definitely non-scratch, and non-scrub. The scrubby side is just useless. But I guess they didn't advertise scrubbing abilities.
These sponges worked well, and they didn't stink as fast as some of them I've used. I do not have a dishwasher so a decent sponge is critical. My supermarket does not always have them in stock but I always grab them when they do.
Really good sponges! Very long lasting. Absorbs liquid and soap really well. They don't have that after smell that usually builds up in kitchen sponges. It is very effective at removing everything from dishes without being to tough.
I actually like this brand but when you need a tougher sponge I would try the heavy duty one which is green and yellow. Also the blue one works well as a everyday sponge. They won't scratch your dishes either.
