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?
