Cellulose Sponges

From detailing a car to tidying up after a big meal, cellulose sponges make any job easier. They bring value and convenience to home and office cleaning tasks. The versatile design of cleaning sponges makes them an excellent option for every room. Use Staples® inventory of cleaning supplies to find sponges of varying sizes and shapes.

Get More Cleaning Done With Cellulose Sponges
Sponges save time on large and small cleaning jobs. While washcloths need to be rinsed often during cleaning, these sponges absorb several times their weight in water. This feature makes it easy to focus on the task at hand and spend minimal time wringing out cleaning tools. Each cellulose sponge is made of wood pulp. This gives them their porous structure and lets them soak up water and dirt.

Take Care of Heavy-Duty Cleaning Tasks With Cellulose Sponges
Sponges are softer than many other cleaning tools. They still have the durability needed for heavy-duty cleaning jobs. Many sponges get most of their bulk from cellulose. On one side, they often have a thin scouring pad. Unlike aluminum sponges, cellulose sponges are yellow and the scouring pad is green. With this feature, users jump seamlessly between light scrubbing and scouring.

Cellulose Sponges Come in a Variety of Sizes
Brands produce cellulose sponge models in many different sizes, making it easy to get exactly what you need to keep every surface clean. Most sponges are rectangular, measuring about 3.5 x 2.5 inches. Larger models measure 4 x 6 inches. When shopping for sponges, it’s important to look at the thickness of each model. Thicker sponges absorb more, so they’re convenient for larger surfaces. Thin sponges are 0.6 to 0.7 inches thick. Larger options range from 0.9 to 1.6 inches in thickness.

Are There Bulk Ordering Options for Cellulose Sponges?
Sponges come in packages of different sizes to accommodate occasional cleaning, daily cleaning, and frequent heavy-duty use. Bulk packages are a convenient choice for cleaning companies and large offices that use sponges for most of their cleaning needs. Consider three-sponge packages for home use or infrequent business use. Larger options include 12-sponge packages. Some sponges are available in single packs. Several brands are part of the Staples Auto Restock program. This makes it easy to get sponges on a set schedule, streamlining the ordering process and keeping a cleaning closet fully stocked.

How Long Do Cellulose Sponges Last?
Sponges made from cellulose break down more quickly than sponges that use melamine or other materials. Consider using a separate sponge for each room or surface to extend its functionality. Users who clean their sponges in the dishwasher and let them air dry can probably use the same sponge for four to six weeks.

Do Cellulose Sponges Work for Detailed Cleaning Jobs?
Sponges are larger than many tools that accommodate detailed cleaning work. The material is soft enough that users can cut sponges to fit corners and other small areas. This maximizes a sponge’s usability and makes it an efficient option for large and small cleaning tasks.
