Smelly sponges, now there is a nice topic. But maybe I am the only person in the world who has problem with her sponges always being smelly. They get stinky long before they wear out. I was complaining to Angie, who told me her trick. She soaks her sponges overnight in water with some oxiclean. Well she is right it works great. I also add a drop or two of lavender oil, to sweeten the non-smell. If you have a sponge cleaning tip, I would love to hear it.
