I didn’t think I’d be reviewing these, but after a few weeks of using them, I kinda like them.
SHiZAK Multipurpose Silicone Dish Scrubber Sponge Brush for Dish Washing Multi-functional Cleaning Fruit Washer / Vegetable Cleaner / Heat-resistant Mat / Gloves (Pack of 2, Blue&Orange)
So let’s see if I can break this down….
- You get two in the pack, 1 blue, and 1 orange
- They dry quickly
- They are more hygienic when compared to a normal sponge
- They are easy to clean
How do they arrive?
Both sponges are packaged separately and then put in a little plastic bag. That’s pretty much how they arrive. To be honest they do not really need any fancy packaging. They are pretty cheap scrubbers.
How well do they work?
They are not scouring pads, they will not manage burnt on stains and they do not manage dried Weetabix very well either. Aside from that, they are pretty good. I pre-soak everything and then give it a once over with this. If it’s clean, I leave it. If it needs more scrubbing I put the dish/pot to one side and come back to it afterward with the Vileda.
Pros and Cons
Easy to clean
Great for normal washing up
Not great for dried-on foods
Are they worth the money?
I think they would be worth the money if they were a little more useful. They cost £7.99. The pros out weigh the con, but I can’t see myself buying more of them.
This was a sponsored review of the sponges and I have to admit they should only be used for (as they put it) light work. If you have any burnt on or dried foods which need to be removed, this scrubber might not be the one to use.
Pro Tip from a washing King!
Pre-soak any dishes with a little hot water and soap. Then after about 10 minutes give it a wipe with your kitchen gloves on. That should get rid of most if not all the dried on foods. Once off, you are free to use these silicone scrubbers.
