I grabbed a Konjac sponge in Tiger earlier, I've just googled and I'm confused.

Some results say to use it dry and some to soak it in warm water and then gently squeeze before using. Google also unclear on if I'm supposed to use it with cleanser or not? Does anybody know anything about them?

Don't use it dry. Warm water is best. You can use it with cleanser if you want but it'll likely shorten its lifespan.

I've had a bit of a grope of it, and if the consensus was dry is the way to go, I'd have not used it. Its very rough.

No, use it wet! Then it's really nice and gentle. I used mine with cleanser, it was a very good exfoliation.

I use mine either with Liz Earle or with Philosophy Cleanser and it's lovely. Only ever wet though, dry would irritate the skin far too much.
