About Us

Detroit Sponge & Chamois has been in business since 1938. Since 1996, it has been owned by third generation owner, Michael Waroway.

For years, our business was dedicated to the natural sponge and natural chamois market. As part of our tradition and heritage, chamois skins are still imported from manufacturers around the world and sponges are still purchased directly from fishermen and processed in our facility. However, our product lines have increased far beyond the original lines to be a complete source for window cleaners. As part of that, we also function as a master distributor of certain core inventory lines.

For us, historically and today, customer service, quality, and selection are what matter.

We're committed to serving the needs of window cleaners everywhere.


Detroit Sponge & Chamois is committed to maintaining high standards of professionalism and excellence within the cleaning supply industry. We strive to provide the highest level of customer service and support to add value to the quality products we offer.

We are guided by the principles of honesty, caring, and professionalism while fulfilling our primary objective of providing quality equipment, quality information, and quality service before, during, and after the sale.

We make this commitment to you, our customer, as well as our employees and everyone we come in contact with.



We are open Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm EST, but you can contact us any time and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
