How is this different from a regular sponge?


An ordinary household sponge can harbor and grow harmful bacteria and mold that you transfer and spread, each time you use it. The Debbie Meyer GeniusSponge™ is used just as you would an ordinary sponge, but its unique properties inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and mold on and in the sponge itself. So when you use it, you are not harboring or transferring harmful bacteria and mold - including Staph, MRSA, e-coli, Salmonella, and Black Mold - from the sponge to the surface you are wiping – you are also not harboring the bacteria picked up from surfaces! The Debbie Meyer GeniusSponge™ lasts 15 times longer than a comparable cellulose sponge, holds 22 times its weight and absorbs 40% more than a comparable cellulose sponge.
