Did you know that the dirtiest, yuckiest thing in your house is something you use all the time, near your food and dishes? Yes, it’s your kitchen sponge.
We’ll spare you the germy details. (You’re welcome!)
So how do you keep that sponge clean?
● Soak the sponge for 5 minutes in a solution of one quart water to three tablespoons of chlorine bleach.
● Let the sponge air-dry.
● Be sure to wash your hands when you’re done.
● Replace your sponge every 2-3 weeks, depending on how frequently and roughly you use it.
● Use paper towels to mop up food spills rather than a sponge.
If you’re really feeling diligent, clean your sponge in a bleach/water solution as often as daily to keep it clean.
