These are great!! VERY “scrubby” but also gentle enough to use on certain dishware and what not. I feel as though they work just as good as those wire bristle “sponges” you get in the grocery stores that are disposable, if not better. My favourite thing about the Skoy Scrub is that it’s reusable & easy to clean; just throw it in the dishwasher! I got one for my mom too I love them so much and so far she’s had no complaints!!
