Acme Brands of Sponges
Acme Sponge brands include “The Natural”, “Aqua Sponge” and “Duro-Cel.” Our brands contain natural sponges, cellulose sponges and polyester sponges for different types of applications and are processed, sized, packaged and priced with those in mind. The Acme line of natural sponges include Wool sponges, Yellow sponges and Grass sponges. These sponges are used primarily for bath, body, kitchen, automotive, as well as faux painting and finishing applications. While our cellulose sponges and polyester sponges are used for all types of general cleaning (including dry cleaning), they are also used for construction, texturing, painting and janitorial applications. We offer a wide range of sizes, textures, densities and shapes for many different applications.
Sea Sponges are a renewable natural resource that are harvested from the ocean. Natural sea sponges, unlike artificial sponges, naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria, are environmentally safe, economical, 100% biodegradable, and a quickly renewable, sustainably harvested natural resource. Sea sponges are native to Florida coastal waters and have been used for a variety of purposes for more than 2,000 years.
Natural sponges have several distinct advantages over synthetic sponges. Sea sponges are much more absorbent, more durable, longer lasting, will not stain or retain odors, and their soft texture promotes a more thorough and less abrasive cleaning. Although over 5000 species of Sea Sponges have been identified so far, only 12 of them are currently harvested and used for commercial purposes.
Natural Sea Sponges are the Cornerstone of Acme
Natural sea sponges have been the cornerstone of our company from the very beginning, and for over 50 years now we have been sourcing and providing the highest quality sponges available. Our experience and know-how have not only made us the largest sponge supplier in the U.S., but has built our reputation for providing quality products that consistently meet our customer’s high expectations. By doing our own processing and holding large inventories of different sponge varieties, we are able to maintain our high standards and the quality of the sponges we offer. We offer 3 different varieties of natural sponges including, Wool, Yellow and Grass sea sponges.
