A silicone sponge is a kitchen tool or household cleaning item made from silicone rubber. It is designed to replace traditional sponges or scrubbers made from materials like cellulose or synthetic fibers. It is often used for washing dishes, plates, bowls, fruit, vegetable, car, bath, but people also like to use it for picking up lint and pet hair. Because compared with traditional sponges, silicone sponge is environmentally friendly and can reduce the consumption of cellulose sponges and will last far longer.

Advanced and Professional Techniques
We are equipped with many advanced machines to produce and customize silicone sponges:
- Co-Injection Dripping Molding(Epoxy Molding):
Epoxy molding for silicone sponge involves encasing silicone sponge material with epoxy resin to create protective or functional parts with desirable properties such as sealing, insulation, or shock absorption. The process includes placing silicone sponge in a mold, injecting or pouring epoxy resin, curing it, and then demolding the final encapsulated component. This combination of materials is used in various applications for their unique properties.
- Silicone Compression Molding:
Silicone compression molding is a manufacturing process where silicone rubber is mixed with curing agents, placed in a mold, and subjected to heat and pressure. This process cures and solidifies the silicone rubber to create flexible, durable, and heat-resistant parts used in various industries.
- Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) Injection Molding:
In the process of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) injection molding, a silicone polymer base and a curing agent, both in liquid form, are blended and then introduced into a mold. The material cures into a solid, heat-resistant silicone rubber part with excellent flexibility and durability. It’s widely used in industries like medical devices and automotive for producing high-precision parts
Why choose our silicone sponge?
Silicone sponges offer several advantages over traditional sponges and scrubbers, making them a popular choice in many households. Here are some of the key advantages of silicone sponges:
- Durability: Silicone sponges are highly durable, soft and light, and have good resilience, and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. They don’t easily break down or deteriorate, which means they can last longer than traditional sponges.
- Heat Resistance: Silicone sponges can withstand high temperatures from -60°C to 200°C without melting or deforming. This makes them suitable for use in hot water, in the dishwasher, and for handling hot pots and pans.
- Non-Absorbent: Unlike traditional sponges, silicone sponges do not absorb liquids. This property helps prevent the growth of bacteria and mold, making them more hygienic and odor-resistant.
- Easy to Clean: Silicone sponges are easy to clean and can be washed in the dishwasher, boiled, or simply rinsed with soap and water. They can be quickly sanitized, reducing the risk of bacterial contamination.
- Non-Scratch: Silicone sponges are typically non-abrasive and gentle on surfaces. They won’t scratch or damage delicate items like non-stick cookware, glass, or dishes.
- Multipurpose: Silicone sponges can be used to clean dishes, countertops, stovetops, and even be used as a scrubber for vegetables.
- Environmentally Friendly: Because silicone sponges are long-lasting and don’t need to be replaced as often as traditional sponges, they can help reduce waste. This makes them a more environmentally friendly choice for some consumers. And our silicone sponges are tasteless, non-toxic and odorless.
- Odor-Resistant: Silicone sponges are less likely to develop unpleasant odors compared to traditional sponges, which can become smelly over time.
- Hygienic: Since silicone sponges don’t absorb liquids and are simple to maintain, with a reduced likelihood of harboring bacteria and other harmful microorganisms, promoting better hygiene in the kitchen.
- Color Variety: We have various colors and designs of silicone sponges for you to choose.
To clean a silicone sponge:
- Rinse it under warm water to remove loose debris.
- Apply mild dish soap and gently scrub with a cloth or another sponge.
- Rinse thoroughly to remove soap.
- Optionally, sanitize with vinegar or baking soda for odors.
- Air dry completely before using it again.
To disinfect a silicone sponge:
- Create a disinfectant solution using equal parts white vinegar and water or a diluted 3% hydrogen peroxide solution.
- Submerge the silicone sponge in the solution for 5-10 minutes.
- Rinse the sponge thoroughly under warm water.
- Air dry the sponge completely before using it again.
Optional: You can also disinfect some silicone sponges by microwaving them when wet, but check if your sponge is microwave-safe before doing so.
