Answer

A natural sea sponge is actually a living animal.  It is the second lowest life form on earth next to the amoeba. It is just a multi-cell organism.  It is found in select locations in oceans and seas around the world. The processed sponge that you would buy is actually the "skeleton" of the sponge.  It has been known for centuries to be one of the best items for cleaning in the world.  It is also widely used for crafts, faux finishing, sponge painting, ornamental use, and of course, cleaning.
