Default How do you keep your kitchen sponges free of bacteria?

I simply bear in mind that a sponge is filthy no matter what.


While that's true, it's a punt to say that because you can't keep a sponge
wet for more than a short while before the bacterial count doubles,
doubles, doubles, and doubles.

As you're aware, if you double a penny for a month, you end up with over
five million dollars.

Bacteria are no different.

Hence the goal is to
a. Not throw out the sponge every day
b. But also keep the bacteria in check
c. Without brutalizing the sponge to pieces
