Household sponges

One would think that there is nothing as simple as a sponge. Not quite. Polyurethane foam sponges can be made in several varieties depending on what they will be used for. For example, fine pore hydrophilic sponges have a great level of absorbency and work best on smooth surfaces. Open, rugged style cleaning sponges are better for cracked surfaces.  Some are anti-bacterial, others are abrasive. And of course, there are a multitude of shapes and colours available on the market.
