    How this is played? Each member gets one guess. The answer will be revealed on the following Tuesday. The first correct guess has the honor of submitting the image for the next challenge. Sometimes there will be more than one thing in the photo or more than one way to accurately describe what the photo represents. The original poster will be the final judge of who is "most correct".

    I think Bill's got it. But just to play the Devil's Advocate, I'll go with a filter media for an aquarium.

    Well gee... I was going to go with Bill's guess. Umm... how about a facial scrub thingy. (no clue what they are called, but they are almost like pan scourers!!)

    I don't know what it is in English, but does velcro (or hook and loop fastener) tell you something? I assume it's velcro

    We don't have a direct hit yet. I'll pick the best answer we have later today, so take another guess, folks.

    Are you saying we are allowed a second guess?

    Ok, nobody nailed it. But Matero's description of velcro felt the closest to me... it's a white board "dry erase" eraser, and the female side of velcro is indeed very similar, though velcro makes little loops, and this textile just has fibers. Still, it was tough, I guess. I cropped, rotated it, and dropped all color but a little blue.

    Not the same photo (can't find the bugger) but here's the actual object:
