Wash sponges the easy way–just put them in the dishwasher the next time you run it!
Sponges are a mainstay in every kitchen, and all too often we throw them out before their best days are over. There are a couple of ways to clean sponges: you can pour boiling water over them (don’t squeeze them right away or you’ll get burned); spray them with bleach (but who wants a bleachy taste on dishes?); or just put them in with the dishes.
Run the cycle on hot and when it’s done, you’ll have fresh-smelling sponges ready to get to work in your kitchen cleaning.
