Optimum Big Red Wash Sponge

Specialized “cubed surface” for the ultimate wash!

Optimum Big Red Wash Sponge is a large (7x5x3 inches!), porous wash tool that is ultra-safe to use on paint. The cross cut pattern on the sponge creates numerous cracks and “alleyways” that trap dirt and safely remove from the surface of your car. Optimum Big Red Wash Sponge has increased absorbency qualities that keep the sponge soft and malleable during washes. Optimum Big Red Wash Sponge can be used on any surface and may become your next favorite!

Every wash you give your car comes with a slight risk – the risk of instilling light swirls and scratches. But, if you use a washing medium designed specifically for washing, that risk goes down immensely. The Optimum Big Red Wash Sponge uses its unique cross cut design on both sides to draw dirt, dust, and other debris into the sponge and away from your paint. Since there is nothing to drag across the surface and scratch, you’re left with simply clean paint!

Optimum Big Red Wash Sponge holds a lot (a lot!) of water and suds. This allows you to clean a larger panel of your vehicle, without stopping to rinse. And thanks to those channels cut into the surface, you’re not spreading dirt around this large area. Use with a high lubricity, high suds shampoo for a safe and effective car wash.

Big Red Sponge Time Saver!
At first, I didn't believe that you could wash a car with only a bucket with a few gallons of water, ONR, and a Big Red Sponge (BRS)! After watching a lot of reviews recommending it, I finally bit the bullet. I can't believe how much I like using the BRS/ONR combo. It has drastically reduced my wash times while also conserving some water!
ProsVery simple to use Seems very durable Fingers of the sponge get in hard to reach spots
ConsPrice is rather high for a sponge
It works but..
This product works as advertised but the foam started to tear around the edges during the first wash. I don't know how long it will last.

Give it a try, you will love it.
I agree with other reviewers whose initial response to this product was "a sponge, are you kidding?". I thought it sounded like a terrible idea. I initially tried to use microfiber towels to do a rinseless wash, and did not not like the experience. Before giving up on the rinseless wash idea completely, I decided to try the BRS. I immediately realized it was the ideal wash media. It's easy to control how much solution you want to apply, it's easy to move over the surface of the car (to me, much easier to use than microfiber towels), and rinses clean after each pass.

In the winter, when the sponge is getting dirty, I just add a bucket of warm, clean water to my routine. I can wring out the sponge thoroughly and my rinseless solution stays perfectly clean.

I feel like the BRS will last me a long time.

I only use it with a rinseless wash. I have never tried it with traditional soap and water.
ProsEasy to use, great for applying rinseless washes. Quality construction. Unless you use this thing to wash 20 cars a day, it will probably last for a year or two easily.

ONR's Best Friend
You might think a sponge is an outdated wash media, but this one was perfectly developed for use with ONR. So long as you use it properly i.e. soak it in ONR for 24 hours before first use and don't use pressure, it'll clean your car beautifully and without scratching. I find the big red sponge glides over paint very well and releases dirt into the bucket extremely well. It is pricey, but it's extremely soft yet also very durable so it's worth it.
ProsSoft Great dirt releasing properties Loves ONR
Great for rinseless washing.
Takes getting use to. Works as claimed. Buy it.
ProsDoes not scratch paint. Cleans well.
ConsVery costly for a sponge.
