There is a silver (ag) coated sponge that actually does absorb mercury, I guess that is what I was expecting this to be. Mercury adheres to anything made of silver, but you wouldn't be able to get it back off again.

i reckon that guy could use such a silver sponge, because he's playing a little fast and loose with that stuff.

anyway, i suppose that polymer sponge is no match for the autophilic nature of mercury. he could also have tried a real sponge (made from the sea animal) or something with larger pores. possibly some different types of toothbrushes...
