Rinse the sponge in hot soapy water and wash by hand to remove as much cheese particles as possible. Then, if you have a dishwasher, put the sponge in the dishwasher and wash the sponge along with your load of dishes. I think that would clean up the cheese particles. If not, I'd consider buying a new sponge and throwing out the old one.

You need to replace the sponge. It is recommended that you replace it at least once every 3 months because of the bacteria it gathers. I also microwave mine(WET) at least once a week to kill the germs. 8-)

Sponges are notorious for collecting and breeding bacteria, while a rough-textured cloth can simply be tossed in the wash and come out perfectly clean. But if you're going to use a sponge, try replacing them every week on a set day. If you want to get really coordinated about it, only cook cheesy, sticky, grotty foods on sponge replacement day. That way, you can use the sponge on the grotty dishes, then toss it right out afterward.
