Life Hack : The Stank Sponge

Have you ever bought a new sponge that suddenly started to stink like mildew? I mean just overnight it STANKS!

I know, it’s so gross but you don’t have to throw that sponge away. You can freshen it up easily and here’s how. You’ll need three common household items. First, you’ll need some hydrogen peroxide to kill the bacteria. Second you’ll need baking soda freshen it up and third you need some white distilled vinegar or use my DIY natural surface cleanser which helps kill mold. I’ll leave the link for that recipe in the description below. Don’t throw ‘em away…save ‘em from the stank. Let’s do it!

STEP ONE - place the sponges scrubbie site down into a container. Then pour about a cup of hydrogen peroxide all over the sponges – make sure each is completely saturated. Almost immediately you’ll hear it start to bubble – bye bye bacteria.

STEP TWO
- take about 3-4 tablespoons of regular baking soda and sprinkle evenly over the tops of the sponges. I like to use my fingers to press the baking soda down to the bottom layer of the sponge because that’s where the freshening happens.

STEP THREE
– spray the vinegar solution all over the sponges. It will start bubbling immediately so be sure to have at least one window open for ventilation. Continue to press everything all in together, then flip them over to make sure the entire sponge gets treated. Spray a little vinegar on the scrub side and then I like to put some soap on the scrubbie side too because it can get a little janky from oil and grease. Squeeze your sponges together and rinse under hot tap water really really well and voilà – the stank has left the sponges! Dump the water and you’re left with a fresh smelling bacteria free sponge, just like that.

You’re done within minutes and it cost you less than a new one with little to no effort!
