- Immersed in water, each sponge expands to full size.
- Made from all-natural cellulose.
- Highly absorbent and gentle on cookware and fine tableware.
- A run through the dishwasher keeps them clean and fresh.
- Regular sponge: 4" x 3" x 1" high (expanded).
- Large sponge: 5 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 1 1/2" high (expanded).

Rated 1 out of 5 by FZAW from No longer a Quality Product I’ve purchased the pop up sponges for years and found them to be a well constructed and effective sponges. The last two batches no longer so. Within a couple of weeks they disintegrate. I immediately started noticing a crumbling of residue after the first couple of uses which I did not experience before. After this batch I’ll find another product to use.Date published: 2019-07-11Rated 1 out of 5 by jsolo16 from Fall apart quickly These sponges are very poor quality and they fall apart within 2 days of use. The center of the sponges essentially eroded away with pieces of sponge falling into the sink. W-S needs to find a new source for these before I recommend purchase.Date published: 2019-06-23Rated 1 out of 5 by slitch227 from Poor sponges I have purchased these sponges for about five years and loved them. However, these sponges fall apart. I would not recommend buying them. I won't purchase them again.Date published: 2019-05-09Rated 1 out of 5 by Nancy55 from Not like previous purchases I have used the small pop-up sponge for many years. They were very, very good. I would buy no other. Not two weeks ago I began to use sponges from my most recent purchase. I have worn out two in less than two weeks. They are very tender and fall apart with use that would not have destroyed prior batches. I do not know what to think. I hope the first two will be exceptions, but I have no way to know. I would not recommend the first two of my present batch.Date published: 2019-04-28Rated 5 out of 5 by Mazzie from Finally! A Great Sponge! Love these Sponges. I ordered the smaller version. When you first receive them, they are so compressed, you may think you were duped! But, just run them under the faucet and Voila! Slowly, right before your eyes, a soft, easy to grip, but durable and lovely sponge emerges. Not like ANY OTHER SPONGE IN THE SUPERMARKETS I assure you. It is easy to use to scrub out pots and pans as well as clean all the things you can't clean in your dishwasher, like wine glasses and other delicate items. Brilliant! Finally! A Great Sponge.I will buy them again and again. Will try the larger size next! Don't hesitate to buy these gems.Date published: 2018-06-12Rated 5 out of 5 by snobird39 from Love 'em I have been using these sponges for 30 years and do love them for their toughness....last forever it seems....and for their ease to store the unused sponges since they don't take up a lot of space.Date published: 2017-11-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Myrtlemomma from Best Sponges!
