We're big fans of trying out the products that rise to the top of TikTok.

Our latest recommendation? A £3 cleaning sponge that is now a bestseller on Amazon, thanks to dominating the video sharing social media app.

The Scrub Daddy and Scrub Mommy sponges have been doing the rounds, as TikTok users praise their easy-to-use, efficient cleaning properties, that allow you to clean everything and anything from cutlery to bathrooms.

What sets them apart from your usual cleaning sponge (other than the cheerful smiley face), we hear you ask?

Under hot water, the scrub sponges go soft and can be used to wash inside glasses and other small spaces.

Run under cold water, the sponges go hard, so you can really scrub at hard-to-dissolve stains - pretty clever.

The smiley face also isn't just for show.

A TikTok video shows how the mouth allows you to quickly and efficiently clean tricky items, for example dual sides of a utensil in one fell swoop.

While the Scrub Daddy's eyes act as handy grips.

What the reviews say:

  • "Great products. Tackles all the kitchen cleaning jobs, easy to clean. Scrub Mommy has a softer, absorbent side for surface cleaning but you should buy Scrub Daddy to tackle tough jobs."

  • "Love the Scrub Mommy Sponge. Bigger than expected, works really well, dries fast and doesn't get mouldy or smelly. It’s really durable and lasts a long time. I prefer the mommy sponge to the daddy because it has a soft side as well as a rough side."

  • "At first I was a little doubtful a sponge would really be worth this amount of money. But you can see why once you start using it. It’s hard wearing and durable and long lasting. Perfect for all types of uses and I wouldn’t use any other now. It’s an investment in terms of a sponge but will save in the longer run."

  • "My daughter saw this advertised on the internet and showed me how good it was. I ordered it and was surprised at such a quick delivery. The product is really good. I have used it to clean pans and the cooker, and it really does get things clean. I love how it has two different surfaces. It's fun to use."

  • "I had Scrub Daddy already and bought Scrub Mommy to use on non-stick pans and she is just as good. Really effective with minimal effort, durable and get into awkward shaped dishes too. One of best cleaning products I've used."

  • "Great cleaning utensil. Especially for those hard to get areas. Use it daily. No issues with the product and great value for the price."
