This is a flexible pad with nubs that scrub away gunk on dishes and the sink surface. It doesn't hold soap really well, but it is great for scrubbing dried residue. The flexible design contours to most dish surfaces. Since it is made from impermeable plastic it is easy to wash off after use. Set with the flat side up to drain away water after using.


The scrubber pictured here was printed with PLA at 0.1mm layer height with an 0.8mm shell thickness.

I am guessing I have to rotate this before printing it?

This is awesome! Insane creativity!

One of my mates asked me to print this out. I was very skeptical of this thing - but I did anyway. He is constantly sending me pictures of how good this thing is removing baked on cheese from his wife's lasagna. His wife hates it, she thinks it is ridiculous that we can print sponges/scourers. She refused to use it - until one day she did....and she was surprised, but not happy about it! so we have a winner!! The thing is awesome.

I like how you used the same design here for the Mini Truck!
Awesome stuff.

Thanks oohsam, it's cool to hear about how people are using my designs!

I was really surprised at how much flexibility that zigzag pattern gives a part and how well it works. I've got some more designs I'm working on that use it too!

Thanks! The print shown here was done with standard PLA with standard infill. But you could probably use ninja flex too, or even mix them and use ninjaflex for the nubs. There is even an anti-microbial filament coming out soon that could work: http://3dprint.com/71993/3d-printed-kitchen-scrubber/

Hi. Did you use regular PLA? Or did you use rubber-like ninja flex or other specific plastic?
Nice and sweet design by the way. Thanks for sharing.

I don't think it would scratch since glass is harder than plastic. If your concerned about scratches, the scrubber might be able to scratch other plastics. I've been using this regularly and it works fine on glass, stainless, cast iron, and plastic cutting boards, but scrub at your own risk.

Have you used this on non-stick coated pans?

Sweet, but what about scratching other plastics and glass? Will probably not do anything to that Pyrex measuring glass you have there, I believe it is? But regular glass?

Will print out this weekend to have a go =D
