    The Equest® Thick & Thirsty Sponge is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sponge This is the best sponge for cooling down my horse. It holds the water great
    Date published: 2020-07-29
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just okay....I wouldn't buy them again. I ordered a few of these (3 pack), but was pretty disappointed (well, as disappointed as one could be with a sponge! lol). They seem durable and do hold a lot of water, but the problem I ran into was noticing that their color bleeds out, which makes me concerned about using them on my tack. Specifically, when I cut the pink one down to a size that would fit inside my container of leather cleaner, the next day when I opened the container, I noticed the pink color of the sponge had bled out, staining the white color of the (Voltaire) leather soap, which makes me very concerned if the color is slowly bleeding out into the soap, its doing the same thing when I'm using it to clean my leather....slowly transferring the color onto my tack. That can't be good for the leather! Anyway, next time I am going to opt for a natural sponge or something without dye in it, and I won't be buying these again.
