Scrub Daddy Unique Sponge

Updated on April 24, 2015

The Scrub Daddy is just what I've been looking for, for a long time.

I have been looking for a sponge that does not smell rancid after just a few days of use, that cleans non-stick surfaces and yet is tough enough to clean off baked-on foods, and is flexible enough to get completely into some of the toughest small corners like muffin tins and the threads on a screw-in container

This unique "sponge" is soft when you use warm water and firm when you use cool water. I usually soak things that are a little baked on so most of the time, I am using it in it's softer state.

How Long Does It Last

Mine usually last about 2 to 3 months. It does get a little saggy around the mouth as it gets older. I often thought that it might hold up even better if it didn't have the face holes on it.

The holes do come in very handy, though, when you are trying to clean in a small space, like at the bottom of a coffee cup.

They have a heavy duty version now which does not have holes in it. It is great for those tougher cleaning chores.

Important to Remember

The one thing I found that is important to remember, is to always squeeze out all the water when you are done with it, and put it on a holder that allows any excess water to drain away. There are a whole variety of soap dishes with drains to choose from on Amazon.

I did make the mistake of placing it on the back edge of the sink where it was lying in water all the time, and then it did get a little musty smell.

A good washing with dish soap and warm water got rid of the smell. Normally with regular sponges, I have to put them in the dishwasher every few days to keep them from smelling rancid.

When I got a new sink faucet, I started to hang the Scrub Daddy on the handle. That worked even better.

Occasionally some food gets stuck in it or grease adheres, but a thorough washing after each use cleans any of that away. You can also put it in the dishwasher if you want.

Stainless Steel Cookware

I just recently got a counter top induction stove for my new conversion van. I purchased some new stainless steel cookware that is induction ready. I was panicked about reverting back to stainless steel after having used non-stick cookware for so many years.

According to the maker of Scrub Daddy, it is completely safe to use one on the stainless steel and also on the glass cook top. I've been using it several weeks and it has lived up to its promise.

It was especially useful the first several days when I would tend to overheat things, such as bacon, because I was used to using gas to cook. I cleaned the bottom of the pan very easily and without a scratch. The splatter on the cooktop that had hardened a little, cleaned without a problem.

The Scrub Daddy also came in very handy cleaning up the old RV. I wanted it as spotless as could be before I put it up for sale.It really made the job a lot easier. The heavy duty on was terrific for cleaning up the hub caps

My Rating

On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this a "10." I love it.

Scrub Daddy Heavy Duty

For heavier scrubbing jobs, this Heavy Duty is perfect. My regular one lasts 2 to 3 months, but I don't do any heavy scrubbing with it. This one I keep for those jobs.

Since it doesn't mildew, as long as you place it on something that allow the water to drain off completely, it will last a long time.
