Responge is a cleaning tool designed to facilitate the diswashing process, which can be messy and anti-hygienic. It consists of a flexible nylon body, to which replaceable sponge-pads are added.

The disposable pad system is designed to prevent the millions of germs and odors usually harbored in standard kitchen sponges.

-Eliminates the need to use gloves
-Dishwasher safe, washable

-40% less ‘sponge’ material than standard sponges
-Pre-loaded with soap
-Sticky front attaches to the back of the product's body
-Removes all food scraps and cleans dishes thoroughly
