Spontex is a funny word, isn’t it? Created in France in 1932, the name Spontex is an amalgamation of the words sponge and textile. The brand began when we designed the world’s very first cellulose sponge and from those humble beginnings we’ve gone from strength to strength! We’re delighted to say that here in the UK we’ve become the nation’s number 1 branded manufacturer of cleaning tools and gloves. We love you too, Britain!
