If you could see them, you'd be amazed at the germs on your small household items. Doesn't your family deserve protection?
Your kitchen sponge - the dirtiest thing in your house?
Strange but true...
Why kitchen sponges are evil
How long have you been using your kitchen washing up sponge? Most probably more than 3 days and if this is the case, it will be by now be teaming with millions (I think the actual number is around a trillion) of bacteria. The main culprits are E. coli, salmonella and campylobacter and these are the nasty little fellows who can give you food poisoning. In fact, nearly all food-born diseases in the western world are caused by bacteria that is happily lurking in our own homes.
Just like a house party usually ends up in the kitchen, this is the room where you'll also find most bacteria as this is where the food is. The sink area is a particular favourite and bacteria even gets into all the teeny nooks and crannies in the stainless steel surface. Here, they produce goo that sticks them in place making it really hard to get rid of them.
The washing up sponge, however, has to be the most disgusting thing in your entire house. And I know you probably wash it out well but believe me, you won't do it well enough to completely get rid of the bacteria (tip: if it smells then this is bacterial growth and Mr Sponge needs to go in the bin). And for all you people who insist on wiping the surfaces with the same cloth to 'clean' them after use- you are spreading dangerous bacteria over everything (you really are doing more harm than good but feel free to continue if it makes you feel better).
Scientists have studied how bacteria can be spread around a kitchen and the results aren't nice. To start with, up to 10 million bacteria have been found in 1ml of skanky water squeezed out of a kitchen sponge and nearly all sponges will harbour bacteria capable of causing illness in humans. If this bacteria gets onto your kitchen surfaces or hands it can be transferred to your food. Wait a few hours, then its off to the loo as the diarrhoea and vomiting kicks in.
In fact, your studies have shown that your toilet bowl is usually a lot cleaner than a lot of 'safer' areas in the house. After the washing up sponge, the kitchen sink is the second most horrid place in the house, followed by the bathroom sink, then the kitchen taps.
It will never be possible to have a completely germ free home- bacteria and everywhere and most of them can quite happily live with us without trying to kill us. But we can do something about our kitchen sponges. You can soak in bleach and run the risk of getting bleach in your food, which just isn't nice at all. Or you can microwave the Sponge Bob on high power for one minute every day and this will kill everything living on him. Companies are currently working on developing a sponge with antibacterial properties and this will probably make quite a difference to the food poisoning rates.

International Buyers § Please Note Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up: please do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as 'gifts': US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior. USPS First Class Mail International may take 2-6 weeks depending on customs and the postal service.
Combined Shipping We will always combine shipping and charge you the actual shipping for the items you purchase, to your zip, and for the method you choose. Just make your purchase and either let us know, or the next working day we will automatically combine your purchases and send you a combined invoice.
USPS Shipping We offer USPS Priority Mail (PM) and First Class Mail (FCM) (where weight allows: FCM maximum is 13 oz) and on a few heavy items, USPS Parcel Post. USPS is the largest package handler in the world, but it is not perfect. There is not true "tracking" for USPS methods. We always get and provide to our customers Delivery Confirmation. This shows it is in route or delivered, but not much in between. Also, though USPS is normally fast (FCM and PM are 2-5 days to most of the US) there is no guarantee in delivery. And though 99% of our USPS Parcel Post shipments take less than a week, it can be longer. Those packages essentially go "standby." By using USPS, you get savings in shipping cost, but you do have to understand those tradeoffs. Your shipping choice doesn't matter to us: we charge actual shipping for either USPS or UPS. If you want "real" tracking or guaranteed shipping time, please use UPS over USPS. We will ship promptly and provide tracking, but once we ship, please remember that it is out of our hands. To our Canadian and overseas customers, please remember packages can be held up by customs, again, we have no control over this.
To provide you with the best and most efficient service possible, if you select UPS shipping, we may ship via either UPS or FedEx depending upon your location.
Items must be returned within 30 days . Refund will be given as Money back. Refund policy details: null
