At SpongeOutlet, we have been informed that many of our customers have received direct e-mail solicitations from companies claiming that they can provide identical sponges as found at SpongeOutlet.com, but at a lower price.
We are familiar with these companies and can assure you that they are not providing the same melamine sponges.
These sponges provided by these companies are knock-off melamine manufactured in China.
You should be aware that Chinese melamine has been tested and may contain high levels of some very dangerous chemicals.
SpongeOutlet is the largest private labeler of melamine sponges in North America, and together with its parent company, has been in business since 2004.
Our sponges are the identical material as the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. The raw product for the Magic Eraser – and our sponges – is Basotect.
It is manufactured by the largest chemical company in the world – BASF – which is located in Germany.
Our sponges are completely safe and can be used in the presence of food products, pets, and small children.
Before making any decisions to buy inferior and potentially dangerous Chinese melamine, we encourage you to research some of the issues associated with them. You can start by simply researching the terms, “Chinese” and “melamine”.
After researching Chinese melamine, hopefully you will be convinced as a consumer, that the savings of approximately three ($.03) cents per sponge is not very appealing.
SpongeOutlet would also like to inform you that the same Chinese manufacturers of melamine foam have repeatedly contacted our company in an attempt to sell us their sponges.
We could buy that product right now, and sell it to you at the same price that others are. We will not do so, and can assure you that we will NEVER market their products.
