How to Keep Your Sponges Dry And Mold-Free?

Sponges, so useful for washing dishes, as well as scrubbing pots and pans, but oh so full of harmful bacteria when not stored properly. How to protect your sponge from mold and mildew? Here is a neat trick we found on Lifehacker. A sponge, sitting on the edge of the sink, can set the stage for mold and mildew to build up on the wet underside, but a simple binder clip can solve all those problems. Just put your sponge in the clip and prop it up on end. The sponge will dry much quicker and will last longer. [caption id="attachment_767" align="alignnone" width="448"] Binding Clip Used as Sponge Holder[/caption]
