At the risk of sounding incredibly dumb, I discovered last night that my kitchen has one of those sink front trays (they're located directly below the sink, and they flip out so you can store sponges). Yes, it took me a year to find it. A year! And during the past 365 days, I've been slinging the sponge in a suction-cup wire holder attached to the side of the sink to minimize clutter in that area. How do you store your sponges in the kitchen and bathrooms?
