What is a Polyester Sponge?
Invented in 1937 by Otto Bayer, polyester foam (affectionately called “Ester”) is a dense foam originally adopted by the mop industry, which needed a cost effective, absorbent, strong, durable, material that was resistant to harsher cleaning chemicals, oil, and grease. The airy foam, which is similar in structure to natural sea sponges, was also made into utility and kitchen sponges soon after its discovery.
