Do sponges used for handwashing dishes need a hechser?

Question:

Recently I noticed the hecsher from scotch brite sponges was removed. Does this signify that they are not kosher anymore? Or sponges dont need a hecsher anyway so it is irrelevant?

Answer:

If there is no soap added to the sponge there is no need for it to have a hechsher.

Best wishes
