One solution is SpongeBath. The sponge and sponge storage combination is designed to clean the sponge. With its proprietary system and cleaning solution, the SpongeBath kills “99.9% of odor-causing bacteria.” Also, it removes “grease, stains and soap scum.”
You guys – my sponges don’t smell anymore. I swear to you – ever since we started soaking our sponges in between uses, that moldly “there may still be chunks of tortilla soup” smell on the sponges has completely disappeared. Let me tell you – for two people relying on sponges and dish soap to keep everything clean, I stopped laughing at this product very quickly.
The sponge bath. This little invention is so stylish, functional and smart! I hate when my husband and I leave the sponge in the sink. I feel like it's always collecting germs. Instead buying my weight in sponges every month, thanks to this little inventions I can now put my sponge in its little home (keeping my sink area clean and organized) and not only is it out of the way, but it's also being sterilized!
The SpongeBath System, touted as the first dual-purpose sponge holder that both cleans and stores your sponge, comes with a holder and a patent-pending concentrated cleaning solution that is said to kill 99.99 percent of odor-causing bacteria (The solution is made with all-natural and food-grade ingredients including citric acid and malic acid.) A quick 10-minute soak gets the job done, although the site suggests letting the sponge soak in the cleaning solution whenever you're not using it.
