Duskin "Kitchen Sponge"
This kitchen sponge is said to be ``durable and long-lasting'' and has many repeat customers. It has a 3-layer structure with a coarse layer and a fine layer, so it lathers up with just a little detergent, and drains easily and is extremely durable. It also contains antibacterial agents to prevent the growth of bacteria (not effective against all bacteria). The vertical size makes it easy to wash all the way to the bottom of the glass.
You can choose from two types: the ``soft type'' that gently cleans delicate dishes, and the ``hard type'' that thoroughly removes burnt residue. The standard price is 220 yen per piece.
The compressed urethane layer gently cleans even delicate dishes. Suitable for plastic water bottles and fluororesin-treated frying pans. The material is urethane foam.
The non-woven fabric contains an abrasive that thoroughly removes burnt and stubborn stains. Convenient for polishing stains on pots, teacups, etc. as the polishing effect lasts with plenty of abrasive. Materials are urethane foam and nylon nonwoven fabric (contains abrasive material).
Dainichi "Sansan Sponge"
A kitchen sponge that is ``surprisingly long-lasting'' and made from ``industry-leading'' high-quality polyurethane. Its high shape memory prevents it from sagging and keeps it looking brand new forever. It also has just the right amount of elasticity to smoothly remove stubborn oil stains.
It has both good lathering and good drainage. The "membrane-skipping" structure created through years of research allows air and water to pass through easily, keeping the sponge hygienic. The density of the sponge that achieves optimal lathering is also a feature of the Sansan sponge.
Delivered in a compressed package that is only 7mm thick, it can be stored without bulk even if you buy in bulk. When you take it out of the bag, it will quickly expand to the size of your palm. You can choose from normal type and soft type. There is a rich lineup of colors, from monochrome to vitamin colors and pastel colors.
Prices start from 1,489 yen for a set of four.

It is durable and does not easily wear out, so it can be used for a long time. You can also use it to clean sinks and washbasins when dirt becomes noticeable. The price is 220 yen per piece.
