Frequently Asked Questions

What does Skura mean? +

The word skura is Swedish for "scour" or "scrub". The Skura Style brand is inspired by Scandinavian design sensibility which embraces the idea of clean, modern, and happy.

What are the materials in a Skura Style sponge? +

Skura Style sponges are a combination of a patented foam base that is highly absorbent with excellent wipe-dry performance, a premium non-abrasive coating for scouring, and an antimicrobial agent in the foam and scouring coating that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew.

What does the antimicrobial agent do? +

The antimicrobial agent that is built into sponge and scrubber during manufacturing provides product protection against the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew. Skura Style sponges and VERY™ SKRUBBY scouring pads do not protect users or others from food-borne or disease causing bacteria.

How often should I change my Skura Style sponge? +

Skura sponges are designed with a Fade-to-Change® technology that tells you when it’s time to replace your sponge. Depending on the frequency of use, the printed Skura Style monogram will begin to fade as an indicator that it’s time to replace your sponge. Replacement is recommended every one to two weeks.

How quickly should I expect the monogram to fade? +

The monogram fades with use. It depends on the number of times you use your sponge. Most households will experience a Fade-to-Change® indication at about one to two weeks. However, scouring coarse items and crusty baked foods can accelerate the fade. The Fade-to-Change® technology was determined based on recommendations by leading microbiologists to replace sponges weekly.

Can I use the Skura sponge or VERY™ SKRUBBY scouring pad with any type of cleaning product? +

Yes, but some cleaning products with high acidity levels can cause disintegration of the foam and separation of the layers. Dishwashing soap with high levels of surfactants can impact the efficacy of the antimicrobial agent resulting in odor. Keep in mind some products, such as those that contain bleach, may cause the sponge to discolor.

Are Skura Style sponges and VERY™ SKRUBBY scouring pads safe to use on any surface? +

Skura Style sponges are safe on a wide range of kitchen surfaces, including ceramic plates, glassware, porcelain and stainless-steel sinks, laminate and chrome. They will not scratch pans, pots and utensils with non-stick coated surfaces.

Do not use VERY™ SKRUBBY scouring pad on non-stick cookware, stainless steel appliances, fine crystal, and china.

We recommend that you test on an inconspicuous area first.

Can I purchase just one color of sponge per package +

Not yet, but check back with us as we are working to add that feature.

Can I use my Skura sponge or VERY™ SKRUBBY scouring pad in my aquarium? +

No. They are not for aquarium use.

How do I clean or sanitize my Skura sponge and VERY™ SKRUBBY scouring pad? +

We recommend rinsing and squeezing dry after each use to help them fresh. They can be cleaned in the dishwasher. Microwaving is not recommended.

Remember that the Fade-to-Change® technology on the Skura sponge is an indicator that it is time to replace your sponge and practice good sponge hygiene.

Can I wash the WIPE™ ENVY microfiber cloths? +

Wash in your machine or by hand. Tumble dry on low setting.

How do I wash TOWEL TA-DA!™? +

Machine wash cold with like colors. Do not bleach.

How does the Skura Style sponge subscription work? +

There are no contracts or long-term commitments. There are two plans:
Live to Scrub: One four-pack sent every month for those who want to replace their sponge weekly

You will be billed every four weeks for the Live to Scrub monthly plan and every eight weeks for the Love to Scrub every other month plan.
