Everyday Well-Being

Give your kitchen sponge a once-over and add a new one to your shopping list if it looks tired.

How to do it

Head to the kitchen and take a look at the sponge in your sink. Does it look worn and dirty? Can you remember when you began using it? If that sponge looks sorry and/or it's been more than a month since you started scrubbing with it, add a new one to your shopping list.

Why it matters

A kitchen sponge does a dirty job and has the bacteria to prove it. Because a sponge is often warm and moist, it's a perfect breeding ground for yeast, mold, and other potentially harmful germs. Food safety experts recommend replacing your sponge every two to four weeks to help avoid spreading bacteria and ensure the safety of your food.

Fun fact

SpongeBob SquarePants, the irrepressible cartoon sponge, was originally meant to be named "SpongeBoy." The word "spongeboy" was already copyrighted for a mop, however.
