I have used just about every type of kitchen sponge imaginable. This sponges rocks!It rinses easily and absolutely no food particles remain on the sponge after scrubbing pots, pans and crock pots. I am extremely impressed by this product. It is rare that I do a review of a household product, but this sponge deserves praise. Thanks for an awesome product.
I waited to try this because I didn't want to be disappointed.I wasn't, it is great. After I caved and bought one I used it that night and every night since. I have only had it about 2 weeks but it has worked on everything I have washed. Bowls from home made pie crust and the real biggie pizza dough and nothing stuck to the sponge and these things usually do. I love it
I've recently purchased this item and at first I was really satisfied. It was just like as the advertisements described it. No foods stuck to it, and it cleaned my dishes and pots well. However, after about a week, week/half of using it, the "rougher" side started to peel off of the sponge, like the glue was just coming off, or whatever it is that is used to stick it together. If the product would have lasted longer, then it would have been very satisfying. But doing that after a week/half, is very disappointing.
I got a two pack of the Stay Clean Non-Scratch Scrub Sponges. I have to say I am a bit disappointed in them. The stay clean side seems to wear out really quickly and then it forms some type of scum on it and gets really mushy . Pretty Gross!
I think I will go back to the Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge as at least I can get the food off of when it sticks to it and it last a lot longer.
Response from Scotch Brite:By Scotch-Brite™ Team, September 25, 2013
Thank you for your recent review on the Scotch-Brite™ Stay Clean Scrub Sponges. We are sorry to learn of your experience. We would like to hear more about your experience as this is not how we expect the product to perform. Please look for an email that was sent to you so that we can stay in touch with you and provide a solution for you. Thank you.
It's true that food doesn't stick to the back, but it also does not clean things off as well as the original. All those little white dots end up smushed against the background and are worse than worthless. All this and it costs more than the original. Sorry, guys, but it just doesn't live up to its advertising.
I volunteer to evaluate products for 3M and they recently sent a free sample of a Scotch-Brite stay clean non scratch scrub sponge. I have been using it for several weeks now and I really do like it. The sponge side looks like new and the scrub side although starting to show wear , did what it said it would - stayed clean and scrubbed my pots and pans. I just throw it in the dishwasher to clean, it comes out just as clean and pretty as new. I definitely plan to purchase this sponge.
These sponges that 3M gave me as a free sample, did just what they expressed they would do. I found that almost any food that I had on dishes and pans would not stick to the sponge. However, I think that the scrubber side wears out faster than others that I have used, but over all I love them and would probably buy them again. Also the color purple puts a smile on my face when doing a job that I dislike a lot.
Anyone who owns one of thos "low fat grilling machines" knows how hard they are to clean! I just cleaned mine with this sponge and it was amazing! Not only did it scrub off the burnt on grease and hamburger, but it rinsed perfectly clean! LOVE IT!
I've been using Scotch for a very long time and I like the Heavy Duty. I found this sponge does not clean pots and pans very well. I had to scrub and scrub. If you put a little more umph into the top of the sponge I would buy more, but at this time, I will not likely buy it again. Sorry.
I volunteer to evaluate products for 3M, and the company recently sent me a free sample of the Stay Clean Non Scratch Scrub Sponge. I tried the product for a couple of weeks and I absolutely love it. It is so handy because it is so versatile. I can wash dishes or counter tops with the sponge side or just flip it over in my hand and scrub stuck on food in stainless steel cookware without scratching it. After I'm finished washing dishes for the day I just run a little water in the sink with the sponge and pour in a tad of bleach let it set for a few minutes rinse well, squeeze out and air dry to sanitize for the following days use.
This sponge does what it says, eggs and cheese do not stick to it, and I love the density of the sponge part, but the scrubber could use some improvement. I have had to throw 2 away after a short period of use because the scrubber part wore off. I have also used just the Stay Clean Scrubber and that works better, but has no sponge side.
I would like to see the sponge from this Stay Clean Sponge and the scrubber from the Stay Clean Scrubber somehow put together. In fact, that is what made me purchase this Stay Clean Sponge because I thought it would be as good of a scrubber as the Stay Clean Scrubber was.
I've been using the (blue) scrub sponges for years, but when I got this Stay Clean, I fell in love. It's much less stiff, and things don't stick to the scrubby side. I gave all the blue sponges to my church and went out and bought these to keep in my pantry. Much better. Thanks so much!
