The sponges in my 6 pack measure 4" L x 3 1/4" W x 1" D. The middle of the sponge curves in so you get a nice ergonomic grip while scrubbing. The sponge holds the water nicely (some sponge brands just leak if you don't squeeze them out). I advise care when testing which surfaces are safe for use (the package stresses to NOT use it on Stainless Steel surfaces).
The scrubby pad is excellent. I have used the same sponge from the 6 pack for a week now and there is no sign of the scrubby part breaking down. I do place it in the dishwasher every night to sanitize. In the past I have put other sponges in the microwave to sanitize but the O-cel-o packaging says to NOT put in the microwave. I am not sure why. I put it in there anyway for about 30 seconds and nothing bad happened. I am going to call them on Monday and ask why they advise against the microwave and will edit this review with my findings.
The sponges come in different fun colors (my package had orange and purple) and the scrubby parts have funky patterns. The colors and patterns of course don't improve the function but whenever we can use a cleaning product that can help us smile then I say go for it!
The O-cel-o website features a great section that gives you great natural solutions to cleaning. Definitely check it out.
Edit March 11, 2013: Called 3M customer help line today to ask why the packaging says "do not microwave".Read more ›
Saves space: It seems like my sponge dish on the counter always has too many items in it ... sponge, plastic scrubber, metal scrubber, and the occasional try-out product. The O-Cel-O scrub sponge effectively combines sponge and plastic scrubber, making for less clutter on the sink.
Scrubber is reasonably effective: The scrubbing side is as effective as most of the plastic scubbers I have used over the years. Meaning, it works on moderately tough gunk, but falls short at removing the worst stuff. I still have the steel scrubber at hand for the really tough jobs. O-Cel-O does make a different product with Scotch-Brite for a scrubber, but there is a scratch risk with Scotch-Brite on some items (for example, my nice Wustoff knives). Which brings me to ...
Non scratch scrubber: I do prefer a 'safe' level of scrubbing action, even if it is a bit less effective. Having wrecked the stainless 'grain' of a nice knife with Scotch-Brite, I'd rather not have the potential for more damage to other things that is inherent in greater scrubbing power. The scrubber as mentioned work well for dishes, but I also keep a scrub sponge in each bathtub and give the walls a wipedown every few days to keep soap scum from building up. The scrubber is quite gentle enough in my experience for porcelain tile / tub.
Economical: At less than a buck per unit, with the utility of both scrubber and sponge, this is a pretty good deal.Read more ›
I have been using OCello sponges for years. They are sturdy and reasonably priced. Also comes with these cool design prints.
Really like them, as mundane as they are.
The sponges are pretty when you take them out of the pack, but that is understandably short-lived with reasonable use. Aside from having to work harder to scrub my dishes, I dislike that these scrub tops get nasty-looking much too quickly. Even when rinsed out, the tops "pill" and turn dark.
I do like that they are longer-lasting than cheaper sponges I've used. You CAN wash them in the washing machine-they stay intact with no problems. However, the tops will never again look nice once they "turn." If that is important to you, then these sponges may not be a good choice.
In my case, I cut each one in half to further extend the freshness of the sponges (their odd shapes prevent me from making the additional cuts to use as fourths). They work fine cut in half. The size is not a factor regarding their use.
The scrubber side has enough 'tooth' to remove stubborn caked on stuff. If I've cut through a grilled cheese sandwich but didn't wash the knife immediately, the scrubby side of the O-Cel-O will clean it right off. I've used it on my non-stick pans, my knives, cutting board and kitchen counters without negative consequences. The instructions printed on the packaging warn against using on stainless steel appliances.

Good sponge. Like that there are different colors so can use one for the counter and the other for the dishes.Published 13 months ago by issi27
I have enough to last a while and they were a little more economical than buying in a store. Home delivery of an item I often froget at the store was perfect for me.Published 20 months ago by Brenda A. Elliott
Performs just like you would expect a sponge to. Also it seems to take awhile for them to smell. I mean, what more can you say about a sponge?Published 20 months ago by CHRISTOPHER G VANHORN
