Easy Reach for Cleansing Sensitive Areas


This is the product that got Amplestuff started in 1988: A sponge-on-a-handle that changed showering and other cleanup from a difficult experience into the pleasurable, effective one it should be. Nancy Summer, an Amplestuff co-founder, says, "I was upset when I realized that I couldn't reach every part of my body, but we did some research and found the Ample-Sponge. We also learned that many people of all sizes have reach problems, and that it's nothing to be embarrassed about. You just need the right tools."

The Ample-Sponge is a soft sponge on a firm handle that extends your reach in the bath or shower. It's also a great "travel" item for people who want to freshen up while out of the house, or who have reach problems when using the toilet (when a bidet isn't available).

The Ample-Sponge refills come in the colors BLUE and YELLOW. The blue sponge material is a little softer to the touch, and has a smaller cell size, while the yellow is a little coarser to the touch. Normally, when we ship the starter kit, we include one head of each color. What you will prefer is entirely a matter of personal choice.

If you order refills in one of the colors, but would like to try one in the other color, or a different size, please do the following: When you check out, please type the following in the customer comment field: "Please substitute a yellow sponge for one of the blue" or "Please substitute a blue sponge for one of the yellow." Or, "Please substitute a narrow sponge for one of the standard size." (And so forth ...) There is no charge for this option.

Exception: The new extra-narrow sponge is more expensive (it costs more to make) and must be ordered separately, in bags of two.

The Ample-Sponge consists of a 5/8 inch diameter PVC handle and replaceable, screw-in sponge heads. You can re-use the handle and just reorder new sponge heads as you need them. Longer and shorter handles are available. We also make compact two-part and three-part handles that unscrew and fit into smaller bags when traveling. Hand-made in USA by craftspeople in Woodstock, NY. Includes instructions.

For those who are new to the Ample-Sponge, or who wish to give it as a gift, we make two "starter kits" using the most popular handle length, which is 10". The basic Ample-Sponge Starter Kit has that handle, plus a standard-width and a narrow-width sponge head. Because the two colors have a different feel, we supply one of those heads in blue, and the other head in yellow, so that you can try out both.

The Deluxe Starter Kit is the same as above, except we add a 4" extender for help if and when a longer reach is needed; and we add an extra-narrow sponge head as well, so that you can try out all the widths that we make.

Some notes about using the Ample-Sponge

Ample-Sponges are washable. With proper care, in daily use a sponge can last from one month to a year, depending on individual usage, the type of soap, and the water supply. Water supplies that are alkaline (rather than acidic) can degrade the sponge faster than a Ph. neutral water supply.

People use the Ample-Sponge for bathing, as a lotion applicator, or as an aid in cleanup after toileting. Some customers like to wrap a baby wipe around a narrow head and use it as a disposable wiper-on-a-stick.
