Sponges are typically made of synthetic materials, such as cellulose or polyurethane, that may be treated with various substances to enhance their cleaning properties. On the other hand, scouring pads are typically made of abrasive materials, such as steel, wool or nylon, to be used for tougher cleaning tasks. Both sponge and scouring pads are commonly used for household cleaning and are available in various shapes, sizes, and materials. Many individuals prefer them for their versatility, ease of use, and effectiveness in removing dirt and grime. However, choosing the appropriate sponge or scouring pad for a specific cleaning task is essential as some materials may scratch delicate surfaces. Sponges and scouring pads can be used with various cleaning products, including soap, detergents, and abrasive cleaners. They are disposable and can be replaced when they become worn or dirty.
