Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrDave A Decent Sponge for Tile Grouting Jobs
I didn't really have any problems with the sponge. Using it to clean up grouting work meant I wasn't really asking it to absorb much water, so that wasn't an issue. It seemed to work just fine wiping away the haze left over from the grouting compound. The scrubbing side of the sponge didn't seem to have a great deal of scrubbing power, and by the time I finished my small shower, there were some pieces of the scrubber side that had chunked off, but only small pieces in different spots. It looked like it could still be used for another job. But, for the price, relative to the cost of all the other items used on the regrouting job, having a disposable sponge isn't an enormous loss.
All in all, I thought it was worth the price and it did what I asked it to do.

Does not absorb like an ordinary sponge. Purchased to bail water from inside a kayak and occasional cleaning while on the water. Does not pick-up/hold water like an ordinary sponge will do. Have not tested durability in its intended use but I can extrapolate that the inability to effectively absorb water effectively will hinder use as intended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Duck Works very well for grouting
Last time we installed tile, I used a similar sponge without the scrubber, and it didn't go nearly as well. We went over the grout over & over with the sponge, trying to keep it from crusting over. We ended up digging grout out from between the tiles With this sponge, I actually allowed the grout to cure a bit and then scrubbed over the top with the scrubber side. It worked very well, and left better grout lines than I had gotten before.
It's not fancy, but it does the job beautifully.

I put a 3x6 subway tile backsplash up (37sqft total) and the white scrub pad only made it about 1/2 through the job.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JIMBOB This 'SCRUBBING SPONGE' is the worst thing I've used in over 30 years in the construction trades....pure GARBAGE !
The Brutus Scrubbing Sponge repels more water than it absorbs, smears instead of picking up and the scrubby white part falls off before you are half way through trying to wipe and scrub. WORTHLESS PIECE OF WORTHLESS GARBAGE!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DMM1 This sponge did not last very long.
We did a small back splash. The sponge did not last through the job. It started falling apart. We finished the job with another sponge.
