first....ill say it....(we don't have a dishwasher)
and I can't tell you how long its been since I used a commercially made sponge for my dishes.
ive been using my knit washcloths kitchen scrub brushes for years.I love them. they do the trick. and now this tops everything off. scratchier than the washcloth.....great for spot scrubbing.
these work perfectly with my new solid dish soap
