Cleaning Sponges and Loofahs

To clean sponges and loofahs, soak them overnight in distilled white vinegar and water solution to remove the dirt and slime. Rinse several times with cold water and let air dry (in the sun if possible). The mixture should be two parts vinegar to one part water. This also works for shower scrubbies.

I throw these in the dishwasher or microwave for 2 min.

My cousin told me that she throws her bath mesh scrubbies in the washing machine to clean them. Of course, no dryer.
