Just be sure to throw away the sponge and never use one on the paint of your car. This guy would do the job:

The sponge holds dirt, debris and small stones. Rubbing It over your car will cause scratches, swirls and that circular scraping that you see on most uncared for cars.

I'd say 90% of marks on cars are caused from bad wash methods.

I'll give the sponge to the kids for bath time

I've only used their wheel cleaner but it's fantastic stuff. The only brand I've ever used that actually does what it says and cut completely through the grime. Left my rims sparkling and I haven't had to clean them since and its been a couple of months now.
