I think I might be a sponge-a-holic.
Never realized it before today, but I write about sponges a lot. It’s just that when I find something I like, I don’t want to keep a secret. So I share my faves here… with you all.
I’ve already written about why I like the Scrub Daddy sponges so much.
I got the Scrub Mommy smiley face sponges when they were the Today’s Special Value on QVC.
For a few months — while the product is still new — QVC is the only place you can buy them.
After that, I presume they’ll appear on Amazon and in Bed Bath & Beyond, among other places.
How The Scrub Mommy Sponge Is Different
50% of the sponge is a “rough, but non-scratching” surface — like the Scrub Daddy — on one side.
50% of the sponge is a “super-soft, absorbent” surface on the other side — like a traditional sponge.
So the Scrub Mommy sponge is the best of both worlds!
All of the other properties that are built into Scrub Daddy sponges apply to the Scrub Mommy sponges as well. A few of my favorites are:
- They don’t get smelly — because they don’t “hold onto” food particles and they air dry quickly.
- They’re easy to hang (or display) near the kitchen sink.
- They’re shaped to perfectly fit into glassware, bowls, muffin pans, etc.
- They fit within the palm of your hand, so they’re easy to scrub with.
- They don’t scratch any surfaces.
How I Use Scrub Mommy Sponges
There are 2 places that Scrub Mommy sponges work better than Scrub Daddy sponges, in my opinion. And that’s where I regularly use Scrub Mommy sponges in my house:
- In the kitchen
- In the bathroom
#1 – Scrub Mommy is my new favorite kitchen sponge (even better than the original Scrub Daddy sponge) because the soft side makes it possible to actually “clean” the countertop now — rather than simply push crumbs around and scrub the counter (which what the rough side does with ease). You need an absorbent sponge — like the soft side of the Scrub Mommy — to actually absorb liquids and pick up crumbs.
This is probably the sponge I will continue to buy for my kitchen, instead of the Scrub Daddy that I have been buying regularly up till now.
#2 – I also keep a Scrub Mommy sponge in the shower. I use the rough side to remove hard water stains and soap scum from our glass shower doors effortlessly, and the soft side to wipe the glass dry afterward.
Ditto for hard water stains on all chrome surface in the shower.
With this simple shower glass cleaning tool, I no longer have to use a bathroom cleaner with chemicals to clean the shower doors. If a sponge alone can cut through hard water soap scum, then you know it’s good!
I can’t wait till they come in a color other than pink. Hopefully, they’ll come in bold colors like these.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” Household Tips and Life Hacks that most wouldn’t think of. I’m super-organized. And I LOVE to clean! I even enjoy doing laundry (but not ironing). I’m also a lifelong dog owner — so I often share my favorite tips for living with dogs inside your home (like smart home design choices and dog-friendly cleaning & decorating ideas). Career-wise, I’ve been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). Prior to that, I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about instead. For example, I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. When I’m not cleaning, organizing, decorating, or fixing something… you’ll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I’ve personally written over 200 articles about cleaning, organization, DIY repairs, and household hacks on this site! A few have over 2M shares; many others have over 100K shares.
