Using a microwave is another excellent way to kill kitchen sponge bacteria. When using this method, always soak a kitchen sponge in water first as a dry sponge can start a fire. Please place it in a shallow microwave-safe container. Moist the sponge for 5 minutes. Let it cool for 15 minutes. Remove the kitchen sponge from the microwave and drain out the excess water.

Microwaves are a popular choice for cleaning kitchen sponges, but disinfecting sponges is just as easy without household appliances. Instead, clean a smelly kitchen sponge in a pot of boiling water. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a pot. Put the kitchen sponge in boiling water and leave for 5 minutes. Allow it to cool completely in water, then remove the kitchen sponge and add extra water.

How to disinfect a sponge in the dishwasher:

Cleaning kitchen sponges in a dishwasher can be an easy solution for all of them. Place the sponge in the top rack and run the machine through the heat-drying cycle to disinfect the sponge. The most extended, hottest cycle is the most effective, but any heat-dry dishwasher setting will kill the germs in your kitchen sponge.

For a healthy kitchen, it is essential to clean kitchen sponges once a week. However, kitchen sponges should be replaced about once a month, depending on the use. If they start to look naked or smell bad even after they have been sterilized, now is the time for a new kitchen sponge.
