Kitchen Sponges

This Sparked Me!

If you're like me, you use your kitchen sponges for more than just dishes. To easily disinfect them, put them in the microwave for 60 seconds. Just be careful when removing them from the microwave. It will be hot!

    I never thought of that way to sterilize them. I have always been concerned that they were germ distributers!

    Don't forget that sponges are not very expensive. i use mine and then through them out.

    I keep a couple of sponges in different places in the kitchen/laundry room, too.
