Revealing the tricks of the trade
Melamine is widely viewed as "magic" due to its ability to remove a range of marks and spills from both rigid and flexible surfaces without the need for harsh detergents.
How does it work? In reality, the answer is structural rather than magical. Melamine sponges have a unique structure that differs from other foams - such as polyurethane and polyethylene foams - and gives them unique cleaning and absorption characteristics.
Made up of a huge number of fine cross-linked cells, magic sponge is more rigid and robust than other foams while also highly absorbent (hydrophilic). As a result, magic sponge not only removes stains that would otherwise be permanent, but there is no need for harsh detergents and cleansing agents to be used; thus offering a much more environmentally-friendly and cost-effective solution, both of which are key considerations for consumers.
Effective on a wide range of stains, spills and scuffs, magic sponges are now used for a variety of domestic applications, which include:
- Day-to-day house cleaning
Highly absorbent and effective without the need for additional cleaning agents, magic sponge is now widely used for general everyday cleaning applications and for wiping up spills.
- Stain removal
A revolution in stain removal, used dry or with a small amount of water, magic sponge can eradicate stains which would otherwise be permanent. These include crayon on walls, scuffs on baths, taps and floors, as well as spills on carpets and leather upholstery.
Car valeting and cleaning
Producing fantastic results on many difficult-to-clean areas of the car, magic sponge is now widely used by private consumers and valeting companies for both car exteriors and interiors.
Excellent for removing dead flies and marks from bumpers, magic sponge is also used on a variety of internal components such as panels and seat backs to remove marks and scuffs.
