Dish Washing: Sponge or Brush?

Chemicalkinetics | Oct 3, 2010 11:27 AM

As the title states... do you like sponges or brushes for dish washing? I used to only have sponges, but I now have both. I've started to like a palm brush a lot after using one. My reasons: (1) they effectively remove stuck on foods from dishes, (2) food residues can be easily remove from the brushes (Just imagine washing grummy oil residue, a sponge will absorb the residues and basically transfers from one dish to another dish). (3) they keep my hand relatively dry.

I will admit that sponges have two advantages: (1) they can get dish squeaky clean and (2) they capture detergent better -- a drop of detergent will last a long time on a sponge.

Still, I like the brushes just a little more.

What about you? Thanks.
