I know it sounds silly - it is just a sponge - but for someone without a dishwasher, who washes her own dishes by hand everyday, this sponge is the BEST!
Does it work?
Best thing ever!
If you don't have this sponge yet, consider yourself robbed of shear pleasure. The rough side is safe for everything and cleans even the toughest of food. I don't know what I would do without this sponge. I get them as part of a house warming gift, and everyone loves them! It also lasts a long time too!
