Product description


Dry Cleaning Sponge 3/4" x 3" x 2"

Dry cleaning sponges clean surfaces without getting them wet. Wipe away any kind of particulate matter—dust, pet hair, soot, mold, and other stubborn dirt—from any surface. Made of vulcanized natural rubber, they are non-greasy, leave no residue and are completely safe for use on delicate surfaces.

These sponges have many different names—dry cleaning, soot remover, chemical sponge, wall brite sponge, dirt eraser. No matter how you label them, they are ideal for cleaning dirt- and soot-covered surfaces and any cleaning where you can’t use water or solvents.

They are especially effective at cleaning television and computer screens. This sponge is also great for removing any kind of hair from carpet, fabrics and solid surfaces.


Mechanical and dry-surface-cleaning materials are indispensable in the removal of minute soot or dirt particles. Depending on the surface to be cleaned, appropriate materials might include the use of erasers: eraser powder such as Skum-X, block erasers, particularly art gum and vinyl erasers, and mechanical erasers (Selick 1996).

Elizabeth Moffatt (1992) points out that many of the dry-surface-cleaning materials that are particularly suited to soot and dirt removal are composed of vulcanized rubber: Skum-X eraser powder, Groom/Stick, and soot sponges. Where bulk cleaning procedures are appropriate, an object can be cleaned in a tray of eraser powder. Fine glass beads (e.g., B.T. 13) can be used to lift and hold soot from a surface. Groom/Stick has a particular ability to pick up and hold soot and dirt and is useful for surfaces that are porous or textured or have tiny recesses. Groom/Stick can be used by hand or applied on the end of an applicator stick or other tool. Soot sponges are very useful for cleaning many surfaces and can be used full size or cut into smaller blocks. Cotton batting and soft wipes, such as the brand Webril Wipe, can be used in a gentle lifting motion; broad rubbing motions should be avoided unless a surface is not porous or textured. Dry-surface-cleaning materials are also useful when testing for the presence of a light soot layer on an object. A small block of soot sponge or Groom/Stick® rubbed onto a lightly sooty surface will pick up some soot, where a stab dampened with a cleaning solvent will not.
