  • This is my issue I guess! I HATE a stinky sponge. My sponge becomes a "floor sponge" or a "counter sponge" as soon as it gets a little bit yucky!

  • A long time. I put it in the dishwasher once a week and use it til it falls apart.

  • I HATE sponges! They hold so much bacteria whether they are new or not. I just don't trust them. And they stink so fast! I quit using them. I use dish rags and wash them after each use.

  • i quit using them bc they get so disgusting. i switched to those disposable cloths - they last a couple weeks and then I toss them. they are about $1 for a 5 pack.

  • Throw a wet sponge in the microwave for 2 min to sterilize.  Make sure its wet.

  • i don't use sponges. too much bacteria even after you sanitize them. i learned so much in a food safety sanitation cours. never again will i use sponges. i use a clean dish cloth daily.
