Hi, my name is Sandy and I'm with The Maids Home Services, and I wanted to talk about the different type of scrubbies, sponges that you would use. We have a white, a white one, a blue one, and a green general sponge, dish sponge. The white and or actually the blue and the green one are a are a lower grain number. When you're shopping for these, you'll see they'll have like a millimeter on the, on the outside of the package. And the lower the number, the more damage it can cause, more abrasive it is, unlike the white 3M pad. This is a high number millimeter and it's less abrasive, and it's good for all surf...most surfaces that you're going to ah come in, in contact with in your kitchen or bathroom scrubbing. So this is definitely a safe bet. It's a white Scotch brand pad. This blue one is also a Scotch brand pad, and these are some tips, and actually, the differences between the different kinds of scrubbies and sponges.
