Make sure you don't get the 2 mixed up when it comes to wash time

Seriously though - let us know how you get with them

I use one too, current one's a big natural one, and in the past I've used ones from art stores which are lower quality.

You're quite right they need one hell of an initial soak/wash/rinse but I've found little that will touch them once they're ready to use.

Screwfix sell tile sponges that are quite cheap but i would only use them on wheels, they are to hard for paintwork.

Are these grout sponges any different to a cellulose sponge?
