NOT SPONGEWORTHY: Sponges might have a squeaky clean image —even SpongeBob — but they can hide dirty little secrets, as designer Cynthia Rowley unwittingly exposed last week.
As part of a scholarship program sponsored by 3M’s O-Cel-O Sponge Scrubbers with Fun Designs, Rowley had mentored a group of 12 New York City high school juniors and seniors during a summer design course at Parsons School of Design. On Thursday, Rowley was reunited with the students to judge their final projects — a design for a kitchen sponge — and to select a winning image that will be embossed on an O-Cel-O product and sold commercially later this year.
