We admit that we've heard of this method before, but it always slips our minds. We like it though. Why throw out a soiled sponge when you can clean it up and reuse it?
We actually nabbed this little tip from the Kashi (yes, as in breakfast cereal-Kashi) website. (We admit it, we were trolling for free coupons.)
Microwaving or dishwashing sponges is actually more effective at sanitizing than soaking a sponge in a bleach/lemon juice/water mixture. Its a cleaning tactic we've never tried before -- but we're always up for something new.
Is this old news to a lot of you? How do you sanitize your sponges? Or do you just toss 'em out when they get gross?
