I think a few traders have already been doing that - not sure they've made any fortunes yet though

There does seems to be a huge demand for ONR recently

Always nice to stock up and at least sponges are light. With the relatively recent decline of the GBP v US $ it has significantly eaten into savings but certain products are so much cheaper that even parity would make them a good buy.

Correct, I have my sources who are good friends but typically most people taking holiday do not have that luxury so I suppose my comment is more for someome in that situation.

I go to the US several times a year and have for 20 years, and its sad to see how the cost of everything for us Brits has increased so much now the £ has gone to *&T*

Here you go...if you are ready to pay for it
Even from the us it's like 20 dollars, feels like a lot for a sponge, does anyone know if it's worth it?

Those who use it say it is. Combined with ONR its suppose to be the best sponge for it. Its very durable and it is suppose to last years and years. And if thats true that its a very long lasting sponge the cost is justified on the long run.

But Im sorry. I have no experience with it because its unavailable to me as it is for you.

it is a big ? - I have a £1 grout sponge that has sat in a bucket of ONR for at least 3 years and is still perfect. Insanely soft and perfect for the wash. If the BRS is even better then it will have to be amazing!

Obviously these are just random thoughts.....

Bigpikle, if you go the States on a regular basis, have you been tempted to attend the OPT training. $1500 but includes hotels and $500 worth of goodies although 14 hour days sound a little tiring but good fun
