Tesco Value Sponge Pan Cleaners
Advantages: Work well
Disadvantages: Can thin out
Let me start by saying these sponges cost just 14 pence for 5 sponges so to be honest when I purchased them I was not expecting much but they have surprised me and now are a regular purchase on our weekly shop at Tesco.
They come in minimal packaging and you can remove them one at a time easy enough without having to take them all out of the packet. What you are greeted with once out of the packet is a modest size sponge it is not that thick to be honest but big enough to sit comfy in the hand and no feel like you are trying to wash things with your bare hand. There are two parts to the sponge the sponge itself and the on the top of this is the scourers part of the item.
The sponge works well for wiping things down it holds water well and gives you enough sponge to easily perform a number of tasks weather this be cleaning the dishes, washing the sides or even wiping surfaces around the home. It can be squeezed well and leaves the sponge fairly dry after use so is perfect for wiping down worktops and such and works wonders on most surfaces and as it is soft does not scratch them in any way.
The scourers is not too harsh and is mild in cleaning but gets the job done very well a little fairy liquid and the rough side goes a long way and brings all my pots and pans up well without scratching them in any way at all. It is only a thin coat on the top of the sponge but again it gets the job done and helps remove any stubborn dirt that is a little too difficult for the sponge side alone so these are multipurpose sponges. They are not effective for cleaning ovens and other more difficult surfaces but for the 14p they do a lot more than I first expected so this was not very disappointing.
They can be cleaned easily I tend to soak them in some water after I have finished using them meaning I can get a few days use out of them but as they are that cheap it is fairly easy to use a new one and dispose of an old one.
In the past I have also cut these into to shapes for my children to use with their painting and they worked brilliantly although in everyday cleaning they are durable and do not fall apart I find them very easy to cut and was able to remove the top green scourer part very easily and my children loved using the sponges even if my shapes were a little dodgy and again at 14 pence for a pack of 5 sponges it was cheaper than me rushing to the shop to buy some for them.
My only downside is they do become thinner and thinner each time you use them so you do not get as much use as you would from bigger thicker sponges but again for the price they are brilliant for the use you can get out of them in my opinion.
Over all I love these and we use them daily in our house they work fine for all rooms in my house help clean up spillages by my children, can wash dishes, clean sides and work well in the bathroom the pack suggest using them on more household chores like cleaning the oven or bbq but to be honest in my opinion they are not strong enough for this but are fantastic for every day household use.
Summary: A fantastic product at a fantastic price
