Not as nice as the Big red sponge from Optimum

Left Wanting
I figured this would be a replacement for another sponge that looks very similar but is a different color. I was sorely mistaken. The foam is more porous and very coarse. I didn't even use it on my paint for fear of leaving swirls. It's been relegated to washing wheels on my truck.
ProsIt's cheap.
ConsCoarse texture. Falls apart easy.

That'll Do, Sponge...
I was very hesitant to purchase this sponge, regardless of its reviews. I purchased a new car and didn't even let the dealership touch it. I wanted to be the one to apply its first coat of wax. In order to do so, I needed to wash it. My absolutely least favorite thing to do on an unmarred car or a freshly polished one. Accompanied with the two-bucket method this sponge was phenomenal! It held suds wonderfully and left little in regards to swirls behind. I was pleasant surprised and very much pleased with the results to be had.

very good except for those cuts in the sponge
Good sponge except for the cuts which makes it break apart. If only they did not put those cuts in it, it would be perfect.
Prosfoams very well compresses and extands much better than common yellow sponges
Consstarts break apart and eventually in two due to the bad idea of putting checkered cuts in the sponge design !

great for rinseless wash
Bought to use with ONR. Was surprisingly firm but read its best to presoak to get it to soften up a little. Was hesitant to use a foam block, but its unique design and good reviews pushed me to buy it. I use with grit guard and it has been a fun and safe new way to wash my vehicles.
ProsEasy to grip, grabs dirt safely and releases well with a grit guard. Holds tons of wash solution
ConsHarder to fit under tight areas like door handles and mirrors.

I used the bone before this, and i must say this is the preferred one! has enough strength and rigidity to be scrubbed agains the grit guard, but soft on the paint!

Good Sponge
I just used this for the first time the other day and it worked very well. In fact, my only complaint is that it takes forever to get all of the soap out at the end of the wash because it holds soap so well..haha..

Works Great On Soft Paint
So I bought this LC sponge awhile ago, but never used it until yesterday. I got this because of all the reviews and talk on the forum about this sponge for rinseless washes. When I got it and felt how firm it was, I was VERY nervous about using it on my super soft Acura paint. So I finally built up the courage to use it and I must say it does a FAN-TASTIC job with rinsless washes. I used the DP Rinseless Wash And Gloss and my car turned out amazing! The key is to use NO pressure. Just glide it across the surface.I actually prefer this sponge over the new MF wash mits. Go ahead and add this to your cart. You CAN'T beat the price.

not bad
bought this cuz i was looking for wash media for rinseless wash. not bad. i noticed some of the edge started fraying after only 2-3 wash. don't think it will affect performance and may even by a normal process. anyways, i still prefer my dreadlock wash mitt over this sponge for rinseless washing, but that may be purely subjective. i do like the shape of it. the side notches give you some extra grip.

Love this Sponge
I like sponges for their effectiveness of cleaning grime off of the paint. However, the grime has to have somewhere to hide until you rinse your sponge. Enter the Big Blue Cube. For the price, you can't beat these. Very effective, and mostly safe. On softer paints and sensitive dark colors, there are better options, but 90% of the time I grab for this. And as other reviewers have mentioned, this is THE Optimum No Rinse Sponge in my opinion.

LC Sponge
I love it! GREAT when using ONR

Very nice
Found this sponge to work very well. I agree with the comment made about it being too large for some spaces, however an electric carving knife cuts it like butter. I cut mine in half so I have two half height sponges and works VERY well.

Meant For Optimum No Rinse
I bought 2 of these recently and can attest to the fact they work great with ONR. Grabbed and released all the dirt from a weeks driving on my Vette and left a flawless finish. This is easily the best $5 you will spend on a sponge regardless of it's use..

Excellent new design
Virtually the same length, width, and height as the old Lake Country Grout Sponge but this new design has the indentations which makes it easier to hold. Like the old design, this sponge is still hard to get into tight places so a secondary, more flexible wash mitt is needed. Great for rinseless and regular washes, cheap price of entry, and guaranteed swirl-free results make this a must-have for any enthusiast detailer.

This replaces my grout sponge based on size and feel. The grout spnge was great, until i used this cheap sponge. The size is just right, the texture helps for no-rinse washes, and its just plain amazing. I have since got 3 of them.
