Since when does cleaning, any time of year, make us smile? Since Scrub Daddy sponges, with their contagiously happy faces, entered our home-cleaning arsenal.
It’s true: even when tackling the worst chore on our list (we’re looking at you, kids’ bathroom), our Scrub Daddy ($5.99 at London Drugs, Pharmasave, Canadian Tire, Home Outfitters, Home Depot, Kitchen Stuff Plus and Overwaitea) never fails to make us crack a huge grin. Indeed, this smiley sponge’s virtues go well beyond its sunny disposition. Take, for instance, its built-in FlexTexture® technology, which lets the sponge change texture based on water temperature—firm in cold water for tough scrubbing, soft in warm water for light cleaning. Besides being scratch-free on more than a dozen surfaces (from non-stick to stainless steel to car exterior paint), Scrub Daddy rinses totally free of debris, resists odours, cleans well with H2O alone and is easily sanitized on the top rack of your dishwasher or in the microwave. Best of all, his eyes "hold" onto your fingers and his mouth grips and cleans both sides of utensils—now that’s what we call a sidekick we can count on!
You can even purchase Scrub Daddy in a three-piece set ($14.99 at Home Outfitters) that includes a blue, red and green sponge so you can colour code your cleaning jobs—or simply accent your décor (wink wink). Either way, this cleaning wonder has made a happy addition to our spring-cleaning routine … and beyond! —Noa Nichol
