The DEBBIE MEYER GeniusSponge™ is used just as you would an ordinary sponge—but that's where the similarity ends! The unique properties of the DEBBIE MEYER GeniusSponge™ make the sponge more sanitary and, in fact, money saving. The ordinary household sponge can harbour and grow harmful bacteria and mould that you transfer and spread each time you use it. The DEBBIE MEYER GeniusSponge™ inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and mould on and in the sponge itself. So when you use it, you are not harbouring or transferring harmful bacteria and mould. The DEBBIE MEYER GeniusSponge™ is a safer, cleaner, more economical way to care for your home and family.

• Safer: Independent Laboratory tested and shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria and mould on or in the sponge itself. When you use it, you are not harbouring or transferring the harmful bacteria and mould (including staph, MRSA, e-coli, salmonella and black mould) from the sponge to the surface you are wiping
• Money Saving: One DEBBIE MEYER GeniusSponge™ last 15 times longer than a comparable cellulose sponge. (A set of 12 saves you from buying 180 regular sponges)
• More Effective: DEBBIE MEYER GeniusSponge™ holds 22 times its weight and absorbs 40% more than a comparable cellulose sponge
• Country of origin: USA

Nothing Special, Save Your Money

By Pace Bunny

from Montreal, QC

Bronze Reviewer

Last year I was given several of these sponges to try by a well meaning friend; not at all impressed. I agree with the comments posted by Doris and DM.

I found the Debbie Myer sponges to be:
-poor when it comes to absorbing water or other liquids. Much too dense.
-clean no better and doesn't last any longer than other sponges one can buy in bulk. A package of inexpensive sponge clothes last much longer, clean better, absorb more liquid and you can squeeze/ring out more water than from a D. Meyer sponge.
-any sponge can be cleaned by washing it with liquid detergent or by simply microwaving a wet sponge for 10-15 sec.

IMO these sponges are all hype and very little substance.

Not worth

Couldn't find any difference between them and $store stuff.

Missed having the scrubby on the sponge, and it doesn't wipe or rinse well when it comes to grease on dishes or pots and pans. Two stars because I like the idea of it being anti-microbial but it needs that special something, perforated sponges work better. Make them perforated, Debbie, and add the scrubby and then it would be a perfect sponge.

All Star Reviewer

These sponges work nicely in my kitchen for washing some dishes and wiping up. They do last a long time. Like another reviewer, I still have some from a few years ago and bought more this year. I like their integrity in that they keep their shape and sturdiness for the life of the sponge. I wish we were told exactly what is put into the sponges to inhibit bacterial growth.

Not So Special

By Doris

from Hamilton

Bronze Reviewer

The product seems ok. It has some type of foam in it and lasts for about 10 times being used. But, it certainly will not pick up loose standing water, it is too dense. Debbie had mentioned that her name would come off the sponge--it does not.

Great Product

By Gr8tweets

from BC

Silver Reviewer

I have never been a sponge user because I always hated the way that after a few uses they would go hard, smelly etc. I tried these specifically because they are designed not to smell and inhibit the growth of bacteria. Well, the proof is in the pudding. These sponges are excellent. They are long lasting and really are made well. Another great product from Debbie Meyer.

What a great invention!!

By Linda

from Nepean, Ontario

Silver Reviewer

I am so glad that I purchased these sponges, they are fantastic. What a great idea to make a sponge that does not inhibit the growth of bacteria and mold. I like the fact that they do not dry out all hard and smelly. I am still on my first sponge and it has been over a month and it still looks brand new. It has never dried out and no odour whatsoever. These sponges are great, give them a try, you won't regret it. Thanks Debbie Meyer and The Shopping Channel for bringing them to us.

Just okay


from Ontario

All Star Reviewer

These are nothing special. They're just sponges that are a little firmer than ordinary sponges. Our pediatrician said he doesn't recommend using sponges in the home, and that those treated with anti-bacterial properties can potentially hinder the immune system. I'm sorry I bought them.

Since I can't leave a review for the bags and plastic containers on this site, I'd like to do it here. Those would get a firm one star from me. Food spoiled quicker in both the bags and containers with the exception of broccoli and potatoes. Everything else turned to mush in days. I do not recommend.

Hands down, the best sponges I have ever used. They keep their shape, do a great job, and are odourless! I am on week two and the sponge is in the same shape as when I first used it. Amazing! My husband never comments or notices anything. But, he sure noticed the new sponge and commented how great it was. Now that's a testimony!!!!!!!

You have to be a genius to invent the GeniusSponge.
I can't imagine a sponge that stops the growth of bacteria on it and does not transfer bacteria and mold. This is truly amazing.
I use it daily on my dishes and my counter to pick up spills. There is no smell after use and it never dries up. I even keep them in my bathrooms. I've given several to friends and boy, they're amazed

Debbie Meyer, I am waiting for your next visit. Whatever you're selling, I'm buying..
