There's a reason that the Scrub Daddy is one of the most successful products to come out of Shark Tank. The brand creates cleaning essentials for every part of your home, from your grill to your phone screen, but their most iconic invention has been the original Scrub Daddy. Now hear me out: They're the only sponges I have in my house. I use them for everything — the dishes (which they're designed for), my bathroom, even the walls. The Scrub Daddy rarely goes on sale, too, but dear reader, you and I are in luck: You can score a six-pack of the iconic sponge on sale for $22 at QVC. That's less than $4 a pop! Even better, they're available in an irresistible puppy shape, which will make doing the dishes just a little bit less crummy.
Never used the Scrub Daddy before? Let this serve as an introduction.
Unlike a soft, stinky sponge, the Scrub Daddy doesn't get all mushy and gross. Once it gets too dirty for my taste, I just chuck it in the dishwasher with the rest of my dishes. It comes out looking brand new and smells like whatever dishwasher detergent I used — not old food. And I'm not the only one who can't get enough of the Scrub Daddy. "I don’t know what I’d do if they stopped making these sponges! They work great. It’s just that simple. Also, what a great little present for a friend that enjoys cooking," raved a happy customer.
It's like two sponges in one
The Scrub Daddy might look tough, but it definitely has a soft side. It hardens in cold water, making it tough enough to scrub away grime from pans and other caked-on surfaces. Run it under warm water, and it'll be gentle enough for porcelain and glass — and it won't scratch them, either. All it takes is a few seconds under the sink. Watch it in action here.
The face isn't just for show
Dirty utensil? The Scrub Daddy cleans it with one swipe! It literally eats away the grime — just place your spoon, fork, spatula, what-have-you in its mouth, squeeze the sponge, and it cleans the utensil without scrubbing. You can even use it on knives.
It's not just for dishes
The Scrub Daddy is licensed to travel...out of your kitchen. I've used mine on my walls, to scrub my tub, the tiles on my bathroom floor, on faucets and just about any surface. It's also great for cars — the scratch-free sponge can help whittle away grime and dirt from car exteriors.
It's great with shoes
I have several pairs of white sneakers I love, and I've been using the Scrub Daddy to keep them clean. All it takes is some warm, soapy water and a gentle hand. No more scuffs!
It's safe on produce
If you hate cutting around that annoying sticker on your fruits and veggies, the Scrub Daddy can gently remove it — plus it won't leave behind any of that gross sticky residue. Once the sticker is gone, I like using it to scrub off any pesticides or waxy residue left behind.
It keeps my pet toys clean
My dog loves her Kong, and the Scrub Daddy is the only thing that can reach in its crevices, pulling out bits of old dog treats and clumps of whatever else might've ended up there. It's also excellent on rubbery lick mats and of course, food bowls. This five-star reviewer couldn't agree with me more: "It’s no secret that the Scrub Daddy is amazing. Now they have these adorable dog scrubbers for all of the animal lovers! These are great to use on pet bowls, pet houses, toys, floors and pet areas. But don’t just use them for pet messes, they are incredible on dishes, counters, sinks, tubs, toilets, everywhere"
This is far from an exhaustive list: I've heard of others using it to remove soap scum on glass shower doors, to remove dried paint and even as a pumice stone! There's a reason #scrubdaddy has over 2.9 billion views on TikTok — shoppers have found near-countless ways to get the most out of the mighty-yet-adorable sponge.
Another plus: It's easier than ever to shop for the Scrub Daddy thanks to QVC's Easy Pay system — purchase in three installments of $7.24 instead of paying all at once. Now, please excuse me while I go stock up while it's on sale.
