Yucky Smelling Sponges... ugh

 

 

Ok Ok - I'll admit it.  I frequently put my wet sponge in the microwave for a 30-45 seconds thinking I'm doing a good thing... maybe yes, maybe no.

I just watched this video on Yahoo's Shine network...and, no, microwaving does NOT inhibit the awful smell.  But, yes, it does kill some germs.

...  Good news though is that leaving a wet sponge to soak up the sun's rays - eliminates odors!!  Who knew? (Sorry, if you see the advert... I wasn't able to figure out how to lose it.)

So, I guess I'll guess have two sponges rotating at any given time in my kitchen... one to use for four days, one out sunbathing for four days!  Rotate and repeat :)

I love easy tips like this, don't you?

A Happy Move is an Organized Move...

Interesting. I've put sponges in the dishwasher -- good? bad? (Paper towels are probably the best.)

The sun is a wonderful thing.  I'll have to give this one a try.

Always keep my sponges in the dishwasher and they go through each cycle. Never have a smelly problem.

Now that works, Margaret... if you have a dishwasher!!!  In my 1902 building that has not had pipes updated, dishwashers are not allowed... bummer :(
