Instead of using a regular kitchen sponge, try using a loofah or bath scrub to wash your dishes. They dry much faster than a kitchen sponge and provide more lather. I assume the quicker drying time helps prevent bacterial buildup, as mine have never felt slimy like a kitchen sponge. Loofah's may also be microwaved while wet for approximately 2 minutes to kill germs. Please do not microwave the plastic scrubs! I've tried cloths, etc., but in my opinion nothing beats a loofah.

I think sounds like a fabulous idea. I'm adding a loofah to my shopping list. Thanks.
I like the idea of sanitizing by microwave. But even so a loofah can last only so long. How long can I expect the loofah to last and what type of store would have them?
I would like to add that loofahs are gourds that can be grown in your garden. I know somebody out there has to have a garden, and could get a supply to last a long time for nothing more than the cost of seeds.
