To be safe, I always shower after using one.

Another good reason to avoid watching SpongeBob.

Is that why, in those sci fi movies, people exposed to nuclear radiation had to sponge bathe /shower themselves?

That's another good reason to have the dog clean the plates.

A good reason for millennials to stop sponging off their parents.

This is exactly why I don't clean.

I think this report was a plant by Big Sponge to get us to buy new sponges every week. Fight the power!

Microwave a wet sponge for 2 minutes BEFORE use. That kills almost all bacteria, and the few that survive don't have time to reproduce.
