Stay-Clean Silicone Flower Sponge


A hygienic silicone sponge for cleaning around the home.

With over 5,000 silicone bristles, this handy little sponge cleans dishes and work surfaces, as well as potatoes, carrots and other root veg.  

Use it dry to remove lint and hair...and to 'groom' your pet!

Cleaner than a traditional sponge, the non porous silicone dries faster and won't harbour bacteria.

A practical but fun and flexible scrubber that will stand the test of time. When it needs a clean, simply place it in the dishwasher. 

Say goodbye to your smelly washing-up sponge! 

Available in a choice of colours. 

(N.B. Colours selected at random unless specified in the 'Comments' box when checking out.)
