to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Scotch-Brite™, 5.5 designers designed the ‘sponge house’. a set of five sponges, each one acts as a pictogram, identifying what the individual sponges should be used for. a fluorescent green one for the sink, a turquoise blue one for the bathtub, a fuschia colored one for the washroom, an orange one for dishes, and a traditional green and yellow one for pots and pans.
