Review- Scotch Brite Greener Clean Sponges

When Hubby worked for Cogent Systems, the company was bought by 3M.  As a result of that, he was suddenly a 3M employee, and as such, 3M sent a gift box.  Right?  A gift box.  Absolutely packed FULL of 3M products to try and love.  Glue, Post-Its, Markers, Pens, Labels, Tape, Sanding blocks, and Sponges.  In the very bottom of the box, I found these....
 There are three sponges in a package, and they are hard and about 1/8" thick.  That is, until they get wet.  Once you run water over them, this is what happens....

This photo just shows the starting size on the left hand side of the sponge, and the expansion on the right. 

I know what some of you are thinking:  "Sponges are so germ-riddled and horrible!"  Yes, they do harbor germs and bacteria if they sit too long, but I've always liked sponges as opposed to dish rags for certain jobs, and I will continue to do so.  These sponges just give the option of a recycled and bio-degradable sponge.
