Sponges::::a soggy saga solved by the sea
I have to say the dish sponges here are worthless pieces of some artificial whatever. They last for maybe one dishwashing or bathroom cleaning and then they go limp and develop a bacterial infection. I tried many different ones and found nothing in the commercial array to be worthwhile. What I have found to be AWESOME are these natural sea sponges. I see them around in various independent grocery stores or those cheap household goods stores around town. Also they are cheap, natural, biodegradable, sudsy and airy so as long as you set them out to dry they don’t develop nasty bacteria’s and they last an incredibly long time. Using this sponge in conjunction with soaking your dishes and using one of those metal round sponges for tough stuck on spots you won’t need another pink, blue or yellow soggy friend ever again. When I purchased one of these it was long enough to cut into three parts. I now have a sea sponge dedicated to different chores. One for dishes, one for scrubbing veggies, one for scrubbing ME. Now that I have gone sea sponge I am never going back whether here in Buenos Aires or anywhere in the mundo!!
