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.

Little smaller than anticipated
I didn't read the dimensions before purchase, but for something called the "big red sponge" it is a bit smaller than anticipated. That's not a bad thing, just odd. Works perfectly paired with ONR. Keep it in a sealed container after use, or if you save your clean ONR solution it can be stored in there. When used properly dirt melts away from the sponge with ease. When it becomes exceedingly dirty, spray it with some power clean.
Pros- Works well with ONR - slotted grooves for better dirt pickup
Cons- Still seems like a lot for just a sponge. Pick it up on sale if you can.
Plain effective
What was once forbidden is now part of my regular wash method. Washing my car the traditional way here in Miami was nerve-wrecking. The heat and humidity meant that unless I was working at Olympic record breaking pace, my freshly washed car would look terrible due to water spots.
The big red sponge (with ONR and rinseless wash method) has made washing the car enjoyable again. I can complete the job in less than half the time, and don't have to carry out the hose and extra buckets.
The sponge has proven durable over the past few months, and is just plain effective at cleaning light-to-moderately soiled vehicles.
ProsEffective One bucket, not two Save on water usage during wash Save on water not having to wash tons of mf towels Durable
ConsExpensive Only two sides for two swipes, than dunk to rinse; mf towels, 4-6 swipes before using another

It Works
I purchased this sponge because it was recommended for use with ONR. It works as advertised, did not cause swirls but is expensive.
ProsIt works.

Great for ONR washes!
I was a little skeptical about using a sponge during my ONR washes, however after seeing multiple videos demonstrating the use and advantages of the Big Red Sponge (BRS), I decided to give it a shot. Upon opening my package from Autogeek my first impression of the BRS was, it's not that big! After mixing up an ONR solution and soaking the sponge overnight, I started my wash. I was impressed. The size is perfect, it picks up dirt from the surface of the paint without marring and releases it into the bucket just as advertised. I pre-spray ONR, apply additional ONR to the panel/glass using the BRS, then dry using Opti-Seal as my drying aid. Love this combination, the BRS is a good tool to have for anyone using ONR.
ProsSoft Releases dirt easily Just the right size No marring
