For what it is worth: Soaking wet sponge in a bowl with a bit of extra water, microwave for 2 mins = sterile sponge. I do it once a week and try and keep it dry between uses.

Much like my yogurt, I’m not sure I really want my sponge to be sterile. Moldy and gross, obviously not, but some level of local bacteria is probably good for me as long as I have a healthy immune system.

Besides I can’t see this thing doing much aganist dried on egg unless my soap of choice has pumice in it.

It doesn’t look super durable.

OCD + Marketing.

Looking forward to the social media’s rediscovery/rebirth of the sponge in 18 months.

“10 reasons you need to use a sponge the next time you…”

“I no longer pine for my Scotchbrite dishwand.”

How do you feel about Pine-Sol?

He’s no longer a True Scotsman for it?

Except for Chryseobacterium hominis and Moraxella osloensis, apparently.

I’m a bristle brush guy, myself

Yes, I do PR work for the company but only because I’m obsessed with the product. My husband never let me have a sponge in the house until now. The amount of paper towels we went through was really embarrassing and bad.
