You actually don't know when to replace me.
>>
literally never just fill it with water and microwave it
>>
>>18189380
go on?
>>
>>18189389
There is literally nothing to "go on". Get it wet, the microwave nukes the bugs, continue using it.
I can't believe I'm teaching zoomies how to live on a mongolian basket weaving forum.

Microwaving wont remove the chunks and gunk that gets stuck in the fibers over time and stops it from being able to properly scrub and clean.
>>
I once had one for 5 years straight, and, mine you, it was there when I'd settled in. It was black all over.
Hail frugality.
>>
>the kind with the sponge

replace it immediately

It's not nearly as important to replace as you think.
If you have soap on it, then you're fine.
Simple as

When it starts to smell
A dry sponge is a happy sponge, always wring it out properly after use, don't leave it in the sink

the driveway to my house is longer than the street you live on lol

When its no longer rigid and starts to smell? I love dishwashing as much as the next guy but there's no need to be frugal on sponges
>>
>>18189444
That's gross. You're gross.
Although I wish they would make some of these that lasted longer. Seems like a waste.

microwaves don't kill spores
>>
>>18192003
Microwave will kill anything that has water in it. Spores have water in it.

>>18189360
when the soft part gets so fucked it can hardly hold any water anymore
>>
>>18189444
dont do this it makes mustard gas
>>
>>18189360
if you rinse your dishes before using it, it'll last much longer. and squeeze and rinse the sponge after your done

I use one of these. Replace it every time the plastic mesh starts to break down.
>>
>>18189380
sounds like it would smell really bad
>>
>>18190317
Just think about it.
You take use a cloth, wash it in a washing machine, then reuse it a million times.
I do the same thing with my hands instead of a washing machine, and suddenly I'm going to die?
That's silly.

reminder that studys have shown that those kitchen sponges contain more bacteria per cubic inch than fresh human feces.

I was going to say similar. The off-brand ones at Target are like maybe 40 to 50 cents each. Use them a couple days max and throw them away. Simple as.

microwave wont fix it breaking down after a month of use

If you scratch your Teflon with plastic sponges, you need anger management
>>
>>18192261
Nope. Supposing it's not filled with gunk...which it shouldn't be if you've rinsed properly...then it removes all smell. The microorganisms are indeed too small to microwave, but the water acts as a medium for the waves to use to kill the things that are causing that smell in your sponge. Like other anons have said, make sure you ring out your sponge before putting them away.
>>
Some fucking idiot on reddit was saying that they toss their sponge and toothbrush in with their laundry once a month to clean and last longer

I change them whenever the bathroom needs a good scrub. That gets the sponge nice and gross so it's a good time to throw it out anyways
>>

Sweet dreams

>>18192100
Fruit flies and other small bugs aren't affected by microwaves at all
You can microwave them for 30 minutes and they'll come out just fine
>>
My nigga you can get 3 of them for a dollar. You replace them when touching or looking at one feels anything less than great to you. Please care about yourself enough to spend an extra $3 a year on kitchen sponges.
>>
>>18195652
Try drenching them in water first.

Why the fuck do people use these? I haven't bought any of these shitty sponges since I was a freshman in college. Literally just spend $5 on one of these and never look back. You can clean out a black greasy pan that's had two pounds of bacon run through it, rinse it off and you're good to go. Tomato sauce? No problem. Meanwhile a sponge hits a bit of burnt grease and it's basically ruined.

I took the brush pill years ago.

too big for glasses
>>
>>18189360
Monthly because for some reason people keep stealing them from the sink. Should I hide them? They are pretty cheap but what's with people taking them away like souvenir? I honestly don't understand.
>>
>>18197968
This, sponges take forever to clean. I have a round brush for glasses, too.

compared to the OP's suggestion which is made with aluminum oxide, literally the same material as sandpaper?

These suck they feel like they are from the dollar store. You have cheap taste
>>
>>18199548
Are you kidding? Scrub Daddy makes great products. That material of theirs is the absolute best, way more durable, hygienic, and effective than a regular sponge. After a long-enough while that mesh will wear out (especially when you're washing cutlery, it snags) but other than that, one of these is worth 15 ScotchBrite scouring-sponges. You're a goofy.
>>
>>18199606
Dumb shill
>>
>>18199606
They suck and they can't scrub for shit. My mom (bless her) bought me some for Christmas and they can't scrub for shit and the towels just push water around
>>
>>18199172
Anon, where do you live that people have 24/7 access to your kitchen sponges?
