We all know that sponges can turn into disgusting, dirty little things that harbor a lot of bacteria in the kitchen, so when we happened upon an article about a “sponge” that looked like spaghetti, we couldn’t contain our curiosity.


Introducing the Spaghetti Scrub by the aptly named company Goodbye Detergent. The strange-looking scrubber does look like spaghetti noodles when dry, and resembles curled-up instant mami when wet. But weird appearances aside, the product writeup boasts that it can clean and scour dishes, pots and pans, and even grills with no (or very little use of) detergent. So aside from this, what makes it special?

It’s made out of food


Yes, you read that right. Designed by Japanese art director Hiroki Hayashi, the base of the scrub is made out of cotton and polyester, but it’s coated with corncob grain (for heavy-duty scrubbing) or peach pit grain (for lighter washing).

It’s easy to use


To use the Spaghetti Scrub, you simply wet it with water and then scrub away, no detergent needed. If the dishes you are washing are a really greasy or smelly, then just add a small dab of detergent, if you want. The stringy, noodle-like texture of the Spaghetti Scrub reportedly gets rid of encrusted food faster than regular sponges, and the freeform structure lets you clean smaller items easily (like for example, the insides of jars and bottles).

It lasts a long time and doesn’t harbor bacteria easily


Unlike regular sponges that usually disintegrate (and look disgusting) after a few weeks, the Spaghetti Scrub can last for months, and the fact that you don’t need to buy a lot of dishwashing detergent and that the packaging of the scrub is biodegradable gives it earth-friendly pogi points.

Mold and bacteria don’t grow as fast on the scrubbies because they dry up quickly. If you’re wondering where to keep them post-wash, you can buy a spiral-shaped scrub holder from the same company, or just wring it out and hang it on your faucet.

For now, the Spaghetti Scrub is available online at Goodbye Detergent, or follow them on their Facebook page.
