I have mixed conclusions about this product. It certainly does clean well and remove food, however because the weave is quite large/loose but of food get stuck in it and can't come out (even tried it in the washing machine). The other problem is that because it is just an abrasive piece and has no sponge attached to it, it does not hold soap at all, and so I find I have to keep adding more soap to clean. I really want this to work and keep returning to it to tey it, but then most times find I am disappointed.

As described (:

Save the earth, one scrub pad at a time! Works super well, have been using this product for about a year now - also love that I can discard it on my compost bin.
03/05/2021, By hilja
Works lekker, tough enough to clean and pliable enough to get into cracks and corners.
19/04/2021, By Nicci
Great product. Lasts a long time. Abrasive enough for tough marks on pots. Quite stiff to start with but becomes more bendable with use to get into those corners.
01/04/2021, By Mandy
I love washing with this non-plastic biodegradable scrubber - it works amazingly well on pots, surfaces, stove - any hard cleaning jobs. Cleans well in hot-soapy water dries quickly and does not clog up with food bits. Lasts well for 2-3 months - then compost!
10/03/2021, By Iris
Love this scourer, but a little small. It would help if it was about half size bigger, especially when scouring pots and pans. Thanks for an eco friendly option!
04/03/2021, By Linda
Best ever scourer. Will never buy steel wool or sponges.
08/01/2021, By Bee
works really well and lasts long.
27/10/2020, By Anna
A great replacement for the plastic sourer strips. Works in the same way, does the same job - without being a burden on the environment. Will be getting it again.
22/10/2020, By Cheryl
Works well
19/10/2020, By Andrea
Works relatively well for cleaning and dishes, could be rougher though.
30/09/2020, By Maria
I use this for cleaning tough spots throughout the house and it works quite well.
18/09/2020, By Dagmar
I think this is an adequate substitute for a sponge scourer, except you do need a cloth to wipe food scraps before scrubbing to avoid the food getting stuck inside. I'd prefer it if it were a bit thicker, but it works fine and isn't too expensive
05/09/2020, By Natassia
Got these to scrub the stainless steel pot of my new Instant Pot as I don’t want to scratch it by using a scotchbrite sponge. Its works really great.
27/08/2020, By Charlotte
Excellent. I have 2 of these, one in the kitchen and one for scrubbing my shower !!
08/08/2020, By RaynieJ
Really love my Safix sponge, it works great for scrubbing stubborn grease and dirt on dishes. I do find it gets dirty quite quickly, but I just soak mine in some hot water for a while and it comes clean again.
04/08/2020, By Beth
Really great, it is a little tricky to clean but a great alternative to clean pots.
30/07/2020, By Ocean

Good scrubber. Only issue is that food pieces get trapped inside and it’s difficult to rinse them out .
10/07/2020, By Ashley
Good product. Works well to clean tough stains. A bit difficult to clean out food pieces that get stuck in it.
09/06/2020, By Goodness
Lasting long

My go to scrub
11/05/2020, By L
This is not great - food gets caught in it and it's quite stiff so difficult to use.
24/04/2020, By Lyn
Not bad. Not as effective as I had hoped. I prefer a cloth.
19/04/2020, By Carma
I found it much harder and had to use a lot more elbow grease to use this scrubber... So if you want a more environmentally friendly product this works well enough, but you'll have to offset it to the time you'll have to put in scrubbing...
04/04/2020, By Blue
Excellent product
01/04/2020, By Winner
Scrubs like a pro
26/03/2020, By Corlé
Love this scrub pad. It has a much longer lifetime than the shop-bought sponges, plus it's biodegradable. Win-win.
24/03/2020, By B
It doesn't do much more than a cloth and elbow grease.
24/03/2020, By Roxy
I'm happy with the product. I just assumed it was made in SA. My mistake. Pity - maybe someone can start this up sometime soon.
21/03/2020, By Helen
Cleans very efficiently, and it's strong and long lasting. Good to know that I can just throw it in the compost when it's no longer useable.
02/03/2020, By Go
Does the job without any damage
08/02/2020, By Catherine
Gives a good clean.
19/01/2020, By Debbie
I like the fact that i am using an organic product and not adding another non-recyclable product to landfill. It works very well and cleans without scratching.
15/01/2020, By Support
Scrub well
18/12/2019, By Linden
It's not as thick as what the picture suggests. It's fine but I would rather use a brush or cloth instead.
10/12/2019, By Tiffany
This seems to be working well. It is a bit hard and smaller than expected. Will see how long it lasts.
25/11/2019, By L
They don't get into corners well but otherwise work fine
16/11/2019, By Ilse
This worked much better than I expected. It is a bit ‘hard’, so takes a bit of getting used to, but works well. Mine lasted about 2.5 months, much better than the supermarket pink sponges that fell apart after a week! Only reason for not giving a five is that, due to the hardness, it struggles to reach corners. Will definitely get more
06/11/2019, By Warda
This is such a great product. Unfortunate that it isn't locally produced. But it keeps the soap bars well, and exfoliates nicely.
25/09/2019, By Amaryllis
It firstly last's way longer than I expected it to and it really gets to job done!
07/08/2019, By Rory
Great scrubber. Perfect replacement for those normal green sponges. Lasts longer too. Doesn't leave scratch marks on plastic and nonstick pans.
06/08/2019, By Elsje
This is such a great scrubber! Been using it in the bathroom to scrub everything from dirty nails to the bathroom sink! It lathers soap really well and doesn't feel harsh on hands. Will definitely recommend, and will definitely get more for kitchen use as well, but I do feel it's a bit on the expensive side for something that could be a household staple.
11/07/2019, By Evi
Love this little scrubber. It's cleaned non stick pans, crusty counters and a gruesome shower very effectively and with no scratches. Will definitely buy more.
02/07/2019, By Jill
Delighted with this scrubber. It scours so well and does not scratch surfaces. It works well with a sprinkling of bicarb on sticky or burnt surfaces. Best of all is that it is faithful to nature, biodegradable and compostable.
26/06/2019, By MJ
Perfect size. Works great after a few uses.
12/06/2019, By Kristen
Loved the product. It definitely works a lot better than my usual dish scrubber.
07/06/2019, By Megan
Great scrubber, works well. Will buy again.
28/05/2019, By Lyn
I found this takes some getting used to, but that it does the job. I do find your usual kitchen sponges do a better job, but this has to come out tops being biodegradable.
10/05/2019, By Flick
Fabulous little scrubber and great that it’s compostable!
22/04/2019, By Ru
Snazzy little thing cleaning like a dream. Quite small (was hoping it would be bigger so I can cut in half, but alas). Will buy again :)
02/04/2019, By Michelle
Was super impressed with this product. Just as advertised. I was initially but disappointed when I saw how thin it was but once I started on dishes that quickly turned around. I think whatever you soend extra on this product you will save on diahwashing liquid. And it cleaned the dishes really well! Excellent product
23/03/2019, By Shannon
I've spent years looking for a biodegradable dish scrubby that is effective enough to justify its cost and I'm excited to see this one on the market, but it is still an unrealistic price to pay for regular use if someone is low-income and has other financial priorities. I imagine this product could be cheaper considering it's made from a byproduct of coconut farming & hope to see the price eventually drop. It's saddening to witness how often the eco-conscious movement remains inaccessible and elitist. Many would do more if it was within their means.
