Ring in the holiday spirit with a new cleaning product! Scrub Daddy, the brand already loved as a fun, handy way to scrub away tough dirt and grime, surprised us with their Halloween sponges. And now, the Scrub Daddy winter shapes are here to help you remove ham grease or stuck-on fruitcake bits during the winter holidays. These smiley sponges—that already won over the heart and wallet of one of the “Sharks” on Shark Tank—are a perfect tool to add to your holiday cleaning checklist.

What are Christmas Scrub Daddy sponges?

Scrub Daddy began when the inventor, Aaron Krause, was running an international manufacturing company. While working there, he wanted to invent a better way to clean his hands, which led to the creation of a highly engineered polymer foam. From that foam came Scrub Daddy sponges, which clean dozens of surfaces with a smile. (There’s a reason it’s one of our favorite products under $30!)

If you’ve never used one before, Scrub Daddy sponges are temperature controlled. They become firm in cold water for tough scrubbing tasks and soften in warm water for light cleaning. They’re also scratch-free, which means they’re safe to use on glass, stainless steel, cast iron and nonstick coatings.

Ahead of the holidays, Scrub Daddy combined their famous cleaning prowess with three fun styles to get you in the Christmas spirit. Scrub Daddy winter shapes trade in the signature smiley for a cool green Christmas tree, dazzling blue snowflake and adorable white reindeer. Talk about cute Christmas kitchen decor! All three shapes have smiling faces and are dishwasher-safe.

How to Use Christmas Scrub Daddy Sponges

The smiley face isn’t just for a cute aesthetic. Scrub Daddy is designed to give you an ergonomic grip with just two fingers, so you can even get into the deep recesses of your mugs after enjoying hot chocolate or eggnog.

Thanks to the polymer sponge responding to temperature, you can designate each Scrub Daddy winter shape for a different surface. Choose the white reindeer for dishes and glasses for a light clean with warm water. The green Christmas tree can scrub away tough stains on pots and pans with cold water. The blue snowflake could be used for both, or to provide a scratch-free deep clean to your most delicate sterling silverware.

And as much as we all love the smell of Christmas dinner, it can get a bit too smelly after sitting in the sink for a few hours. Thankfully, Scrub Daddy’s fast drying time prevents odors, and these sponges stay fresh for up to eight weeks. When it is time to clean, simply toss in the dishwasher to disinfect and start fresh.
