Re: Flates' poll

What makes you buy new kitchen sponges?

I put mine in the microwave every now and then to kill the germs and only change them when they are starting to fall apart that means every 6 months or so.

Re: Re: Flates' poll

  • I didn't see that poll.    I like to use a kind call Spontex non-scratch scrubber (or something like that).  They have a sort of scrubby surface on one side.  When the scrubber side starts looking worn, I toss.   Otherwise I just use the dishwasher or microwave for de-germing the sponge.

  • I never thought of putting it in the microwave!  Mine just tend to change colour, when they go a little grey, time to toss!

  • mrshooi, make sure it's wet if you put it in the microwave. Set it for 30 sec/1 min. It will be germ free.
  • Mine usually fall apart or look dirty so I end up throwing out.
  • Mrs Severine, thank you so much for that tip, i will look try that next time
