What is a Scrub Pad?

Everyone knows the yellow sponges with a thin green abrasive on one side. This is the scrub pad. The sponge absorbs the liquid, often water and chemicals, and the abrasive part is to remove stubborn dirt. The green pad creates scratches on many types of surfaces. Nowadays there are several colors of scrub pads on sponges available. The white pad is the least scratchy of all the scrub pads. Some wholesalers also offer the scrub pads without the sponge. Often a holder is then sold with it to attach the scrub pad to.
