    Just brought a magic sponge from poundland and wondered how many cleans you can use it for?

    The good news is if you only get one clean out of an item from Poundland you aren't going to break the bank!

    I got the white ones luckily, how many cleans do you usually get on average?

    They usually fall apart pretty quickly. You might use 3-5 on 1 job, maybe more. I ordered 200 off eBay, they worked out at around 5p each. Not bad when it does the job better than anything else. Diluted Virosol works a treat with them instead of plain water.
