Item Description:

The latest in sponge technology, the Big Red Sponge is oversized at 7x 5x 3 for greater ease of use. Both sides of the sponge are cross cut, creating channels that pull dirt from the paint and reduce marring. The porous foam will hold a great deal of cleaning/lubricating solution allowing larger sections to be safely washed before wringing and reloading the sponge. This high quality Big Red Sponge will provide years of heavy duty professional use.

Great sponge, great system
August 1, 2020
I used this on a trip with ONR and a cyclone trap at the bottom of a bucket. Washing one panel at a time like suggested, the sponge would come away from the truck fithy with road grime, pollen, and bugs. Couple swipes across the cyclone trap and a squeeze was all it took to restore the sponge to like new and ready for another panel. Some pieces of gunk I found up in the "fingers" safely away from the paint, good job! I really like the BRS and ONR as a cleaning system, they worked great for my road trip and in-between washes.
  • Seems to do a great job at cleaning dirt from the surface and keeping it in your bucket.
  • Design features worked like advertised.
  • Will use it again on my coated pickup without any worries.

All I use for rinseless washes

This sponge is great for rinseless washes. I've used it with ONR, Wolfgang Uber, McKee's 37 N-914. Works great with all of them but N-914 is my favorite. My sponge is 2 years old and still looks brand new.

Overpriced, but still worth having

This BRS is so handy for rinseless washes with ONR. It sped up my washes considerably and saved me from using dozens of microfibers with each wash. I've been using it every week on my full size truck for the last few months and it is holding up well. I feel silly for spending $20 on a sponge, but it really is handy.
  • Faster than using microfibers
  • Convenient
  • Overpriced

Yes, buy it!

I was very concerned with the prospect of paying $20 for a BIG RED SPONGE! I saw a youtube video stating they were a gimmick. But I was intrigued with ONR and it's unique formulation for encapsulating dirt. The BRS seemed to be a major factor in its efficiency...
-Then I watched Yvan Lacroix use the BRS properly with ONR and I knew I had to try it! Again, the key for me was USE IT WITH ONR for best results! Yvan shows you how to dip it in the ONR, place it on the surface, and DON'T SCRUB! Let the ONR do the work. This whole ONR rinseless process is counterintuitive to the "traditional" soap and water routine, but it IS better, and it DOES work. The scientific formulations of all the Optimum products makes them work best when their directions are followed. Plunge that sponge in the ONR and watch the dirt sluff off and drop to the bottom of the bucket. Go ahead, buy it, you'll like it!
  • It's Big
  • It's Red
  • It's Sponge-y!
  • Use with ONR for successful, happy washing
  • Won't last forever (but will last for many, MANY washings!!)

Worth Having

I bought it 2 years ago and use it for my mobile detailing business. I wash it with dish soap in between washes and its still perfect.
  • Long lasting
  • cleans better than you would think for a foam sponge
  • its 20 for a sponge but it lasts a long time even if you use it for a business,

First off it's to expensive that being said I use for rinse less wash with ONR and I like it.
  • Works great for rinse less washes
  • Way over priced for a sponge

Worked great i used two buckets,one with two grit guards and water and one with just onr! Sponge kept my wash solution bucket clean after I rinsed it. If you look at the picture it has no dirt in it. The sponge makes things so easy I highly recommend trying for yourself.
