Sponge Hero is a silicone sponge that will work as a scrubber, a scraper and a squeegee in one. This black and yellow sponge contains two different types of scrubbing bristles (one on each side), including short bristles for stubborn messes and longer bristles for delicate dishes. A black nylon scraper is also attached to the end of each one, and the tight seal on each will make it a great squeegee for cleaning plates, countertops or sinks.
The cost of Sponge Hero is $14.99 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Sponge Hero at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $24.97.

This sponge comes in an attractive color combination of yellow and black. Since the majority of the sponge is yellow, you'll be able to clearly see whether it's soaking up your mess or whether you need to scrub a little longer.
Household sponges are often breeding grounds for molds and mildews, but this one is completely bacteria and odor resistant. Therefore, not only will your sponge refrain from accumulating molds and mildews, but it'll also never develop an unpleasant smell. With this sponge, you'll never have to apologize to your family or guests for an offensive odor when they enter the kitchen.
The Sponge Hero is both durable and non-porous. That means the sponge will be unlikely to rip, no matter how much you bend it, and it's also unlikely that dirt will fall through the sponge and get caught in the middle pocket. Plus, once it's wet, the sponge will hold onto water for a long time with minimal dripping.
The middle pocket within each sponge contains a soap dispenser, so if you want to scrub with suds and not just water, you can just pour your favorite liquid soap inside. On each sponge, the hole is located on the end that doesn't contain the black scraper. After you wet your sponge, it'll release the soap inside bit by bit.
The material used to make each Sponge Hero—which is also free of the potentially harmful chemical compound known as BPA, that's still found in plastic products today—is dishwasher safe. If you've got a dishwasher, or have regular access to one, you'll never have to deal with the possibly messy task of washing this sponge out by hand.
Although it's quite powerful, the Sponge Hero isn't some massive sponge. It measures only 6.5 by 3 inches, so it won't take up a lot of space in your kitchen, regardless of where you store it. If you decide to take yours away from home, to use at work or some other alternative location, it won't take up much space in a backpack, briefcase or large handbag, either.
Each of these sponges comes with accessories, including a silicone hook that you can use to hang the sponge in your sink and a super-absorbent drying mat that'll help your dishes dry quickly. The hook will stick right to the wall of most sinks, so there'll be no need to install it with any tools.
The black nylon scraper found on the end of each Sponge Hero can remove the most stubborn burnt-on messes, such as melted cheese that's been cooked too long and blackened, caked-on sauces. It'll do this without damaging your stovetop, your copper cookware or any other non-stick cookware. After you use it on virtually any surface, there won't be any visible scratches left behind.
While it's tough enough to scrub off burnt-on food, this sponge is also gentle enough to clean delicate glassware such as wine glasses. To clean your delicate dishes, make sure you use the long bristles on one side of your sponge since the shorter bristles may be too rough on these objects. If you've got tall, skinny dishes, that shouldn't be a worry, as the Sponge Hero is flexible enough to reach down to the bottom of a narrow glass.
These three-in-one sponges come in sets of two, so if you can't make use of both of them in your kitchen, you might want to use the second one in your bathroom. Keep in mind that although you'll get a sink hook with each sponge, you'll only get one dish-drying mat with the both of them.
Some children will be able to use one of these sponges without hurting themselves, but due to the somewhat sharp scraper on the end of each one, they may not be safe for all children. If you've got a very young child or a child who hasn't developed good dexterity yet, they could end up scratching themselves with the scraper. Consequently, depending on your child, you might have to keep your Sponge Hero away from them or supervise them very closely while they use it.
The hook that comes with each Sponge Hero will work for a while, but silicone hooks like this tend to lose their stickiness over time, especially if they're moved often. Once that happens, you'll need to get a new silicone hook (it could be hard to find one of an ideal size for the sponge) or find a new place to store your sponge.
Without a kitchen tool like this one, you'll need at least three different tools: a scrubber (maybe two, if you want long and short bristles), a scraper and a squeegee. You'll also have to replace the scrubbers and squeegees regularly, whenever they become so smelly that you can't remove the smell, even by washing them. The Sponge Hero will take the place of three tools, however, and besides, it's odor-resistant, so it'll never start to stink. That means you'll be able to use it until it falls apart, and due to its durable material, that might not happen for a decade. Furthermore, you won't need to replace dishes that you've ruined by scratching them with other less-than-gentle scrapers, either.
If you use an ordinary kitchen sponge, scrubbing caked-on food off an individual plate might take you up to 10 minutes, while scrubbing it off a larger serving plate might take a half hour. Fortunately, the scrubbing pads and the scraper on each Sponge Hero are so effective that you may be able to cut that time in half. If you do so, you'll take far less time cleaning up in the kitchen after each meal and thereby free up time to move on to other chores or fun activities.
The Sponge Hero is dishwasher safe, but it's not washing machine safe. Though a lot of dishcloths and some sponges can be safely washed in a machine, this sponge should never be put into one, especially if you want it to have a long life.
