Unlike ordinary sponges, each Sqwishful pack contains three sponges which are packed together, compressed like cardboard. After being exposed to water, the sponge expands and can be used like other washing sponges. A very noticeable difference with Sqwishful is the trapezium shape rather than the rectangle, making it is easier to grasp. The sponges are made in the USA from natural, renewable plant-based materials and are 100 percent biodegradable. Buy from www.sqwishful.com.
