Clean Your Sponges
Sponges are an often overlooked kitchen item that is in desperate need of cleaning. So often we just use the same sponge and don’t give it a second thought. Think about it- you scrub your dirty dishes with this sponge, and further, you clean things that touch everything from raw chicken to your toddler’s food they spit out.
Instead of buying a billion new sponges, you can simply sanitize the one you are working with. Get it wet and put it in the microwave for about two minutes. The heat will help to destroy any germs that are currently using your sponge as a home base.
