This object, now part of our everyday life, is composed of two separate layers of artificial polymers: the softer layer, which recreates the feel of a natural sponge, is usually made of polyurethane or some other foamed plastic polymers; while the thinner dark green layer, which serves as a scouring pad, is made of harder polyethylene mesh. The first type of these bi-functional dish sponges was patented by 3M as a car cleaning sponge, or bug sponge: the hard layer of the sponge was designed to remove those notoriously-difficult-to-remove-insects that get stuck to your car’s exterior.
