Great switch

Really cute and inventive sponge alternative - stoked that it lasts as long as it does and can be composted at the end of its life cycle.

Couldn't be happier!

I purchased this in April to trial, and it has been the best decision I've made. It is stronger than it looks, makes cleaning even the toughest pots a breeze, and it is very forgiving. I am totally sold on this "unsponge", have now placed an order for another one. and have zero intention of ever returning to a general sponge! My only suggestion would be for something on which to stand and/or elevate it, so it can dry quicker, and to keep it off the sink.

Nice little sponge

Just used for the first time and found it quite satisfactory. The jute side is not as tough when wet as I had expected but still did the job.

Sturdy and quality product

Durable product. I like the hessian side for slightly abrasive scrubbing. Glad that its upcycled materials too.
