Things I buy because they look like chocolate.

I picked up Scotch-Brite greener clean non-scratch scrub sponges at Vons. I needed sponges anyway, and I knew if it said green it would cost more (ugh) but I always think about what one of my art teachers said: Buy for design.

And these looked like milk chocolate cake, with a thin layer of fluffy chocolate icing on each sponge. (the scrub part)

scotch-brite greener clean sponges look like milk chocolate

This picture is Scotch-Brite greener clean  natural fiber sponges (no caps because they’re just that cool), but what I really bought was the scrub sponges. However, the picture that 3M put up of those makes it look like the sponges have something unpleasant inside, gah, tendrils of something dark, and that’s not what mine look like.

Mine are very pure milk chocolate.

I haven’t tried them yet, but am looking forward to that.

    This works as well, or better, than other sponges I have tried. It has a solid, substantial feel in the hand, and stands up to hard-core scrubbing. I usually buy Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge, 3-Count Sponges or O-Cel-o Light Duty Scrub Sponge, 4-Count Pack because other sponges fall apart after a short time.My only complaint – how to put this delicately? – The scrub top is made out of recycled fibers, and some of the fibers look like hairs. <cough> <cough> A real turn-off.

    I use this sponge for dishwashing, and it is excellent. I’m so happy to have found an all-natural sponge that isn’t $$$$$. I’ve tried other brands with all natural loofah as the scrubber side and they end up mildewy and smelling gross. These last as long as I like (1 month or longer), and I can just pop them in the dishwasher for a cleaning. The scrubber side is gentle enough to use on Teflon. I really have no complaints about the sponges.
