We have been using these dinky looking pink household sponges from Tesco for ages now. They are very handy for a wide range of uses and extremely versatile. We pay £1.20 for four sponges and they last for ages and so are excellent value for the price.
The sponges themselves are a decent size and measure approximately 15cm x 10cm. They come in pink and a range of ‘pretty’ pastel shades, (which I am not overly keen on) but hey, they’re only sponges, aren’t they? The sponges are a decent thickness and great at absorbing spills, even large ones, without any bother whatsoever. They are constructed from cellulose sponge, which can hold a lot of water without the sponge dripping all over the place. They are actually rather good, considering the small price.
What we like about these great little sponges is that they are everlasting. We tend to hang on to the same sponge for a while and use different sponges for different things in and around the home. For example, I use one of them for wiping over the conservatory windowsills (on the outside of the house) and we use another for wiping up around the dog and cat’s bowls. The other one we tend to use on the oven and hob etc. We know which sponge to use for each job as they are all different colours, so no fear we are going to end up poisoning ourselves!
They are easy to keep clean too, and germ free as we soak the household one overnight in some diluted bleach and it’s ready to use the following day. The sponges take ages before they start to come away and come to bits and they seem to be really well made and a quality little household product. Certainly recommended by all of us.
