How to clean a sponge
Sponges are made to clean dirty and soiled surfaces. But that same sponge can add bacteria to those surfaces you are trying to clean. Actually a sponge that looks clean can harbor germs, yeast, and spores.
It is a good idea to sanitize (notice I did not say clean) your sponges at least every four days, especially after cleaning your dirty cutting board after it has been used to portion raw meat. I tried to number the cleaning methods from the most effective to least effective way
The following methods can be used to sanitize your sponges :
1. Microwave method: Put sponge in microwave for 2 minutes starting as wet as possible. Add half a glass of water with the sponge to protect the microwave emitter. Also remember to allow the sponge to cool.
2. Dishwasher method: Leave sponge in the wash and dry cycle.
3. Soaking method (bleach): Using hot water and 10% bleach leave soaking for 5 to 10 minutes. Remember to rinse well.
4. Soaking method (vinegar): Using full strength vinegar for 5 minutes
