The sponge, which is available in-store at Coles, has already won the approval of home-cleaning guru Sophie Hinchcliffe, aka @mrshinchhome.
Mrs Hinch owns a number of the sponges and uses them to clean everything from dishes to makeup brushes and even her washing machine. The sponge is also known for achieving the highest revenue of any product ever featured on the US version of the TV series Shark Tank.
So what’s so special about Scrub Daddy?
The Scrub Daddy is not just a pretty face. The non-scratch polymer sponge changes texture depending on the temperature of water you’re using. So when you’re washing the dishes in the sink with warm water, for example, the sponge will become soft so that things like non-stick pots and pans are cleaned thoroughly without a scratch.
For more heavy-duty applications, like cleaning the barbecue, simply dip the Scrub Daddy in cold water and watch it glide through grime without the need for degreasers. The sponge is also non-scratch, resistant to bad odours and can be disinfected simply by popping it in the dishwasher.
What people are cleaning with the Scrub Daddy
Here are just a few of the ways people are using the sponge to get their homes looking spotless:
- Oven racks
- Removing labels from jars
- Sliding door window tracks and frames
- Pet bowls
What’s with the smiley face?
The smiley-face design is more than just a fun detail and serves two main purposes. The first, is that it makes the sponge easier to hold. The second, is that it makes the sponge easier to store (there’s a special caddy available that attaches to your sink and allows the sponge to dry quickly and hygienically).
