No one wants to feel like they need to wash their hands after scrubbing their dishes, but sponges often develop a gross odor over time that is tough to get rid of. Plus, they make your hands smell, too. Gross! Instead of chucking sponge after sponge, we’d like to introduce you to a smart solution: dish washing net cloths ($4).

To find out if it's really as odor-free as promised, we gave it a test run. As it turns out, we weren't disappointed. Here's what we loved about this genius product.

1. It dries quickly! Meaning no disgusting bacteria growth and stinky smell. Just rinse and let it dry. If you feel like washing it, simply toss it in with a load of laundry. You can also put it in the dishwasher, just be sure to secure it so it doesn’t fall and get stuck in the rotating arm.

2. Food is easy to rinse out of it. You shouldn’t have to clean your sponge, but stubborn foods like cheese and eggs stick to the scrubber side anyway and are impossible to get out. The large holes in these cloths make it easy to rinse off anything and everything, with no lasting stuck-on residue.

3. You don’t have to worry about scratches. It’s so hard to remember whether you can use the scrubber side on certain dishes or pots and pans—these won’t ever scratch surfaces. One less thing to worry about, right?

4. They clean really well. We were skeptical in the beginning that these cloths would hold enough soap and be tough on grease and grime. And while the size (it's much larger than a regular sponge) and feel take a little getting used to, they get the job done just as well as a sponge would.
