"In the early 21st century it was discovered that melamine foam was an 
effective abrasive cleaner. The open cell foam is microporous and its 
polymeric substance is extremely hard, so that when used for cleaning 
it works like extremely fine sandpaper, getting into tiny grooves and 
pits in the object being cleaned."
