We produced an extremely powerful industrial sponge for household-use that can clean with water alone.
This sponge has been widely used for industrial purposes, such as cleaning tanks in food factories where detergents can’t be used, and at restaurants where oils are frequently used to prepare dishes. Not only is this sponge recommended for washing dishes and cooking utensils, but also for removing burned grease from frying pans, water stains on kitchen countertops, and residue from dish washing liquids and lingering odors in sinks. Even hard-to-remove oil stains can be easily washed away by using hot water at 50℃ (melting point of oil) and above.
The sponge’s most distinguishing factor is the specially formulated synthetic rubber it contains, which when soaked in water, gives it super absorbency and strong frictional force. This specially formulated synthetic rubber is a balanced mixture of two contrasting types of rubber: high oil-absorbing general-purpose latex rubber and moderately adhesive polar polymer latex. It is poured into the sponge in liquefied form and then hardened by letting it dry, which makes the fibers stick together and helps prevent the sponge from fraying and wearing down easily. For this reason, THE SPONGE has been counted on to clean in the harshest of environments where sponges are used repeatedly throughout the day.
THE SPONGE is manufactured by Nachihama Inc., the only company in the world to create this specially formulated synthetic rubber and continue developing more products using this same technology.
We’ve created an exceptionally powerful and durable sponge.
After use, squeeze out excess water and dry.
