Has anyone ever seen white sponge balls and knows where to get them?
I have an idea for a routine that involves white ones.

Is the incomparable Rene Lavand using white sponge balls in his one cup routine?

According to the premise of the routine, they're breadcrumbs. If they were made of sponge they're awful tiny.

I thought I heard of someone with a routine with "Snowball" in the title that used white sponge balls but I don't recall who it is.
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

Renee's routine uses bread crumbs. It's a great routine.

"Snowball"...I'll try looking that up.

I have come across some white sponge balls at a major arts and crafts chain store. They are available in a few different dimensions and have most of the characteristics of standard sponge balls. They are a tad firmer, but not by much.

I bought them in the general art supplies department.

Happy hunting!

My pleasure.

I have found their stock to be variable and sometimes inconsistent.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, PM me and we can arrange a swap.

By the way, you may have started a thought-bubble in the mind of an eager entrepreneur!

Hi Manal,

So far (almost one year), they do not yellow. I keep them away from direct sunlight, which always changes the equation.

They do, however, pick up a lot of dust and hair.

I would think with White spongeballs you would need to clean them more often.

Panlives,

What's the appox. size of the smallest ones?

I keep mine in my pocket all the time. I am afraid they will not look as clean as long.
