This Simple Dish Sponge Is the Thing We Never Knew We Needed

A dish sponge that takes all the "yuck" out of cleaning up after dinner. 

If you’re like me, you grew up with a dishwasher and later went on to live a young adulthood without. Because of my early life’s privilege I feel that I’ve never fully gained the tools necessary to wash a dish properly the first time. Maybe you’re like me. Or maybe you’re just tired of buying sponges. Perhaps you think sponges are gross. All of these reasons are valid and if you’re like me, you probably thought there was no recourse for making dishwashing a better experience.

I’m here to tell you that the days of gross dishwashing are behind you. With this 4-pack of Blue Ridge Kitchenware’s Silicone Rubber Dish Sponge, everyone in the house can have their own sponge for doing everyone’s least favorite chore. The silicone bristles promise a perfect clean on the first try every time.

Sponges get moldy, retain food particles and can smell like mildew after just one use. With this sponge, the non-porous nature allows for zero smell and particle retention and the convenient hook allows for air flow that inhibits the growth of mold and mildew. All it takes to clean and maintain is a regular rinse of hot water or a run through the dishwasher. Made from high quality food grade silicone, this is a sponge made to last through all your messes—not just limited to the kitchen. Other uses include bathroom and tile clean up, use as a coaster, trivet or pot holder, and skin exfoliator.

At $7.99 for a 4-pack, you don’t even have to choose what to use your sponge for seeing as though you could buy a pack for every use imaginable.
