We're dishing the dirt on reusable sponges.
If your first reaction was “ew,” I’m right there with you. I’ve taken several steps towards a zero-waste kitchen in my home, but I couldn’t get past the ick factor of kitchen sponges. They're smelly and squishy and full of food bits. And who wants to think about dirty dishes unless you’re actually doing the dishes?
But having a low-waste kitchen is important to me, and I feel uncomfortable about the rate at which we use and discard our dish sponges. I decided it’s time to give this reusable-sponge thing a try.
