Nothing smells quite as bad as a sponge past its prime (you just never get that smell off your hands). Opt instead for a Skura Style Antimicrobial Sponge, which is made from a patented polyurethane foam base that also contains an antimicrobial agent and dries super fast. Over the course of a few weeks, as the sponge reaches the end of its lifespan, the Skura logo will fade from the surface, letting you know when it’s time to replace. Fun fact: Skura sponges harbor 99% less e.coli than traditional cellulose sponges. How’s that for extra clean?
