How to disinfect your sponges
Used sponges and dishcloths should be disinfected daily. Choose one of the following four simple methods of disinfecting.

  1. Place damp sponges and cloths in the microwave oven, and "cook" them on high power for 1 minute. Do not microwave dry sponges and cloths; they could catch fire. Let them cool before using.
  2. Soak sponges for 5 minutes in a dishpan containing a solution of 1 cup of liquid chlorine bleach and 1 gallon of water. Rinse them with clean water and hang them up to dry. (Bonus: This procedure sanitizes the dishpan at the same time.)
  3. Launder sponges and dishcloths, using the hot-water cycle of your washing machine. Then dry them in the dry to sanitize.
  4. Toss sponges and dishcloths in the dishwasher with a load of dishes.
