Customer Reviews
Scotch-Brite® Greener Clean Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge 87033, 8/3 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Scratched my carbon steel pan Since this product is 100% plant based I assumed the scrubbing side was scratch free, but I was wrong. I used it once on my beloved carbon steel pan and now it is full of scratches as though I used steel wool on it. The package says that the product may scratch but only in the use and care section in small print. I would make this information much more prominent in the packaging. While my pan is scratched, I’m glad we had yet to use this scrubber sponge on any other steel surfaces in our kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job & Good for Environment I bought this product a couple of months ago because a sale made it the same price as the normal sponges and I try to go green when it's within my budget. I use them in the bathroom and they are great at scrubbing the counter, sink, and tub. My only issue with them is that the scrubby bit readily falls apart leaving behind little dark brown hairs. However, those are quickly wiped away with the other side of the sponge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed-Not buying these again I bought a 3-pack of theses sponges yesterday and will NOT buy them in the future. The sponge I started with leaves little, dark brown particles behind in all the places I have used it. Not helpful in my cleaning process. Not up to Scotch Brite's past standards.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Scrub pad detaches after first use Do not waste your money on the heavy duty sponges with the brown scrub side. The scrub pad deteriorates very quickly. I bought a four pack and each sponge has hardly lasted a week. I took a new one out of the pack last night and the brown scrub pad was already detaching or coming apart from the sponge after one night of light dishwashing. Not to mention the fibers fall out all over your sink, as others have mentioned. The non-scratch ones with the tan/beige scrub pad are much better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Sponge The scrub pad doesn't last a week in light use. I will never buy this product again. The Heavy Duty Scotch Brite sponges are far superior and last at least 4 times longer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design !!!!!! I have used your sponge scrubbers for many years and loved the old green colored ones. This time when I bought new sponges, all I could find was the new Greener-Clean sponge scrubbers which are actually brown. I hate them. The scrubbing side is very stiff. I have only been using the first one in my kitchen for about a week and the scrubbing side is already falling apart.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes for More Work I own my own residential cleaning business and thought I'd try these sponges. Upon using this product on tubs, showers, and sinks, I was extremely disappointed to find that when this sponge is squeezed in order to remove the water, the plant fibers fall off the sponge making the surface look worse than it did prior to cleaning. It made it look like dirt was all over the place. I found myself trying to clean the dirt that wasn't even there to begin with. Overall, it made my cleanings take longer than it normally would. I would love to support "green" products, but not at the expense of additional cleaning time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I must say I was skeptical about how this product would work. Usually "Green" means a product that's good for the ecology but doesn't work as good as the original. But this one is just as good as the original. I've just been sold on a "Greener" Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
