Do you wash dishes by hand? if so how often do you

change your wash clothe or sponge, do you use a new one everyday, every week?

  • I wash dishes once a day (sometimes twice, sometimes not at all, depending on how much there is and how lazy I'm feeling). I change my dishrag every time, because of my routine - I wash dishes first, then I use the rag to wipe the counters, then I use it to get anything sticky off the floor before I sweep and mop. So it's not fit to use again, LOL.

    I think if I didn't do other stuff with it after, I would probably just rinse it really well and replace it every 2 or 3 days.

  • I wash by hand daily, as often as needed. I replace the sponge about once a week or so.

  • I wash dishes by hand every day. The place we're renting now doesn't have a dish washer. I usually change my sponge out when disinfecting it doesn't take the funky smell away. I disinfect every day though. (microwave) When I had a dishwasher, I'd toss it on the top rack after I used it, and disinfect it that way.

  • I wash the dishes by hand, & I replace my sponge at least once a week. If I use a dish rag it gets thrown to the the towel hamper as soon as Im done...

  • I have a dishwasher and run it a couple times a day. The pots and pans I do by hand and have a scrubby type sponge I use for that. I change the sponge when it falls apart.
