I really wanted to love these but I just couldn't. They were really cute when I opened the package and they felt nice. And they did hold up to considerable scrubbing. Unfortunately, they didn't hold the dish soap very well and weren't firm enough to really tackle even the lightestly stuck on food. I'm really disappointed. I ended up using them in the shower and that didn't work either because the soap simply slides off. They felt nice as a face massager but that's about the only thing I have found them good for.
