Cut your dish sponges in HALF! That’s right half! I got this tip from my sister Christie and it’s genius!
I promise they aren’t too small…just try it out. You will totally waste fewer sponges like this…who needs that giant thing anyway? Everyone that I have told this to has totally converted to mini sponges.
Also, I like to use different colors of (half) sponges – one for dishes, and one for the counter. And when your sponge needs a little refresh, put it in a bowl of water (or vinegar…thanks for the tip Holly!) and microwave it for 2 minutes. That is supposed to kill off 99% of the bacteria. And when it’s finally dead, throw that little sponge out and use the other half!
Until later, happy saving!
