Sponge Care Tips from Monticup:

Your sponges will last a long time if you care for them properly.

    Dip a small corner of the sponge into cool water. Blot the sponge on a clean white cloth or paper towel. If any color comes off, the sponge is NOT colorfast. Wear rubber gloves while washing a non-colorfast sponge so the color does not get on your hands. Also, do not wash this type of sponge with any other color of sponge.
  • How to wash your sponges:
    Sponges may be washed by hand in lukewarm water with a drop or two of liquid soap.
    Don't rub or scrub them hard.
    And do rinse them really, really well.
  • How to store your sponges:
    Store your sponges in a container that is big enough not to squash them. Give them room!
    Separate your sponges by color before storing them. Plastic ziplock bags are great for this.
    Do not store sponges of different colors touching each other. The color of one sponge may in time stain the sponge next to it.
    Do not store them in a hot place like the attic, or a damp place. Store them in regular room temperature conditions.
  • How to revive your sponges:
    If your sponges get flat from being stored in tight places, or look "bent" from being stored next to another object for too long, you can bring them back to their original shape. Simply wash your hands, and shake the excess water off them. While your hands are still damp, work the dampness into the sponge. You may even lightly mist the sponge and work the drops of water in. The sponge will gradually regain its shape.
  • Make your sponges more flexible:
    Some professionals even prefer to work a few drops of water to their sponges right before using them (with clean hands, of course). The sponges will be extra springy from the moisture, and may be easier for you to handle.


Q: What kind of vanish are you doing in this video??? You are really good at it. I know where the ball is, you just do such a good job selling the switch. I am not familiar with whatever technique that is. I hope you are able to tell me. Thanks!

A: Thanks for the email and glad you liked my vanish.
I call it the Monticup vanish ;-)

Actually it's just one of the moves I picked up watching one of our Sponge Ball DVDs.
I don't know what the move is called, but it's my favorite for sponge balls, as it looks natural.

Customer Reviews

Customer service is great
I ordered 2 sets of these, then I get an email finding out they was out of green, and should get more in later that week. magictricks.com kept me informed with emails, and the spongeballs still came quickly. with sponge products its all about the persons liking. some like them firmer than this, however I find these perfect to do some of the harder vanishes. if I was to teach a child sponge magic, these would be perfect to use..... perfect for the beginner, perfect for the expert. I love this product.

I have and use many sets of sponge balls of different sizes and colors but find that the 1.5 are my favorite when working with kids. These are super soft and have vivid colors. Highly recommended!!

I LOVE the sponge balls.
As a boy, a remember a clown doing the sponge ball tricks for me at a city event. I was baffled and spent weeks trying to figure it out. Now I'm preparing to perform magic for kids, and the sponge balls seemed a perfect choice to add to my repertoire. Not only are the tricks effective, but the balls themselves are exceptionally easy to handle and manipulate. my adult friends who happened to see me practicing were stunned, and my nieces and nephews (my test audience) were just as baffled and enchanted as I was all those years ago.
