Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge Leaks Blue Dye
3M is a reputable company that has many product lines. One of them is the Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge. There are many people who use this scrub sponge for their dishwashing and other scrubbing needs.
However, it is disturbing to know that from early uses, the Scrub Sponge leaks a blue dye. Below are “before and after” pictures of the Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge product and a bowl of water. The picture on the right was taken after the sponge was squeezed under the water a couple of times. Notice the bluish hue in the “after” picture.
An inquiry has been made to 3M about safety concerns regarding the blue dye and its exact chemical composition. We are waiting for the company’s answer. Meanwhile, we invite others using this product to test whether blue dye is leaking from their Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge during the first couple of uses. Happy Baby USA has tested this product 10 different times. And for all 10 out of 10 times, the tests show blue dye leaking from the scrub sponges. (This product was purchased from Costco in bulk). If more people inquire through the 3M website, a quicker response may come and a possible corrective action may be taken.
Happy Baby USA will keep you posted on any updates concerning this matter. If anyone else receives a response, please feel free to reply below. In the meantime, Happy Baby USA strongly recommends not using the Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge for dishwashing and cookware use.
