Scotch-Brite Scrub Dots Sponge: Great Kitchen Cleaning Tool

While cleaning is a chore seldom preferred by many, one cannot argue with the importance of having well maintained and hygienic cleaning utensils for the family’s overall health. Reports on food and safety often highlight that contaminated kitchens are home to several health conditions including diarrhoea, stomach cramps and in severe conditions even bouts of food poisoning. 

Even a simple kitchen scourer if not kept clean, can become home to various contaminants such as mold and bacteria. In fact, German researchers from Furtwangen University have called the kitchen sponge a microbial incubator, and have shown a piece of sponge the size of a sugar cube can host as many as 54 billion bacteria, a small number of which may be pathogenic and can cause illness.

Scotch-Brite Scrub Dots Sponge comes with 2 varieties which could be differentiated by its colours. The green scrub is meant for heavy-duty usage and removing stubborn dirt.

Want to make your Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots Scouring Sponge last longer? Follow these quick tips for superior cleaning and hygiene. 

Contrary to popular beliefs, microwaving your sponge isn’t effective at killing germs. A study in 2017[1] found that trying to disinfect your dirty sponge will only kill some of the bacteria on it, leaving the strongest, smelliest and potentially most pathogenic strains behind. They will then reproduce and occupy the vacant real estate of the dead. And your sponge will just be stinkier and nastier. So here’s a few ways to help keep your sponge cleaner:

Make sure to wring dry your sponge after every use, letting it lay wet takes longer for it to dry and allows bacteria to grow. 

Nothing will wear down a sponge faster than throwing it at the bottom of your sink or in a dish with water and soap. It will absorb moisture, germs, and all kinds of unpleasantries. Make sure you have a sponge holder that hangs and allows the sponge to drain and for air to come through it. Keeping the sponge high and dry when not in use is important for ensuring a long shelf life along with replacing your sponge every three weeks.

I would like to hear from you guys how to keep your sponge every time after use and how often you replace your sponge. Do let me know in the comment column below!
