A useful sponge

Perhaps thinking that there will be more incentive to spend time washing our cars than driving them, under the prevailing conditions, Unipart have introduced a very useful Spontex cellulose sponge made from natural wood pulp, which holds 25 times its own weight in water, does not scratch or absorb dirt, and is generally superior to synthetic sponges. It is notably compact when dry and is available from Unipart centres and British Leyland distributors and dealers at the recommended retail price of 24p, plus VAT.
