As a 20+yrs user of this product, the quality of this product has drastically been reduced. I used to get well over a months use out of this pad doing three meal times dishes cookware and such. Now I am single doing one person's meals worth twice a day. And within two weeks the pad is worn out! This is great for sales. But lousy for the individual. You used to have a great product. What happened?
I’ve been buying Dobie cleaning pads for over ten years. Recently, I’ve noticed the mesh is breaking down after days of use rather than weeks.
It seems the quality has diminished. Can you recommend a replacement product?
I, too, have noticed a distinct reduction in durability. I've used Dobie pads for decades to wash dishes and definitely see how much faster they wear out in the last three years or so. Holes develop within a few weeks, pad last no longer than a month. Have been looking for replacement product.
I have been using Dobie sponges for many years. However, recently they have not been holding up as well as in the past. I would say that everyone one of the sponges I have used in the past two months has lasted no more than a week. By that I mean that the covering begins to shred within several days use. I used to be able to use them for several weeks at a time. This is quite disappointing because I really loved this product compared to regular sponges that quickly became smelly and were generally ineffective compared to the Dobie. I am sad to say that I have to look for a comparable alternative because the Dobie is not worth the expense anymore.
and please make a much larger size Dobie pad as well, with a scrub handle specially for cleaning shower/floor tiling to rid the nasty soap scum. Thanks
