Like many of the other reviewers I cannot grasp why retailers have generally pulled these products from the shelves over the last couple of years? I have used these kind of nylon 'dishwashing pads' for many many years and just refer to all similar brand items as scrubbies. They are the best product I have ever found for general purpose dish and pot scrubbing especially with non-stick surfaces. But...it has been my experience that whatever the brand or type they are invariably held together with string and/or rubber bands. DUH? Nylon fastened with cotton and rubber is pretty much a total design flub and guaranteed material failure. Within a few days they always come apart. Just plain stupid or...planned obsolescence? SO, HERE IS THE SOLUTION (and I'm sorry if the work involved is unacceptable, but I find it extends the life indefinitely or until the scrubby itself gets all fouled up), GET YOURSELF SOME MONOFILAMENT FISHING LINE AT ABOUT 15# TEST STRENGTH AND WITH A NEEDLE (before first using the new scrubby) WEAVE THE LINE THROUGH THE PATH OF THE STRING OR RUBBER BAND, CINCH IT UP, TIE IT WITH A GOOD KNOT AND YOU GOT YOURSELF A LONG LASTING AND SATISFYING PRODUCT.

The blue S.O.S. Tuffy Dishwashing Pad is NOT the same as the older red/orange type. The older orange Tuffy weighs .35 oz (new and without paperboard tag) and the new blue is .3 oz. (10g. versus 9g.). The older orange one has larger nylon "threads" and is loosely woven. The blue one is more compact and the nylon strands are thinner. Like many reviewers, I prefer the older orange ones; they last longer.

I have used Tuffy's for over 30 years,and they used to be the best thing for scrubbing dishes, and were totally indestructable, as well. But their durability has been going downhill for at least the past 5 years. Now these blue ones are so pathetic, they fall apart in just a few days!!! I have bought 2 in the last month, and they are both ready to be thrown away!! Sad that a great product has been ruined. I guess Clorox wasn't making enough money on them when they never wore out! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS GARBAGE!!

I called The Clorox Company (the number is on the cardboard tag on each Tuffy) to complain about the disappointing quality of the new Tuffy pads. The man said they "never" get any complaints about this product. So all you people who are unhappy with the quality, give Clorox a call. Maybe it will help.

I read such positive reviews about these scrubbers. so i went out and bought 2 of them. came home torn off the yellow tabby thing. and the damn scrubber came un raffled . it was tied together by a cheap peace of string. I couldn't believe what had just happened. You would think they would have tied it together with the same material it's made of ? Poor quality

The older red and yellow Tuffy pads were FANTASTIC - 5 stars forever. These blue ones look like a blob of toxic slime, and are flimsier. Please bring back the old Tuffy!

Beware the new blue Tuffys. I just tried to buy the usual red and yellow Tuffy and all they had was this new blue one. I could tell as soon as I picked it up off the shelf that it was a crappy, cheap version of what used to be a decent product. I have gone out of my way to pay more money for the yellow and red Tuffy's because the cheaper copies just didn't last as long, or feel as good in my hand.

The manufacturer is insulting me by thinking that I won't notice the much lesser quality of this blue Tuffy. It is thinner and losely connected. I expect it to fall apart very quickly.

A marketing disaster of epic proportions! This company should fire its entire consumer marketing insights team and bring back the orange and yellow scrubbers. Putting the name Tuffy on these blue pads defiles the brand! I have personally bought and used the Tuffy pad for 40 years, and every time I have been forced to buy an alternative the disappointment in performance has been profound. Bring back the REAL TUFFY PAD!

Like some of the other recent reviews, the quality of these blue scrubbies is terrible. I returned this item to Amazon as they are virtually unusable. I can't imagine these would last through more than one or two dish washes. Purchase them if you don't believe it or think that we are being overly critical (which is what I thought prior to ordering)... but be prepared to return them once you see for yourself. They may look like what you expect them to based on the pictures, but the reality is that they are not up to any reasonable standards for this type of product.

These are not like the ones we use to buy. They are thin and flimsy. I had to scrunch it up and put a rubber band around it to even get it to be of any use. I will try to put two of them together to have a least one that is halfway useful. If I were SOS I would be ashamed to put my name on them. The old ones were so good and these are total crap!!!!! I would not advise anyone to buy them. the worst part is I bought a pack of 24.
