I have seen comments regarding cleaning kitchen sponges in the microwave. How does one go about cleaning sponges with Teflon "scrubbie" on other side of sponge? Can you put that in microwave?

NO! the teflon is not microwave safe. It "could" cause severe damage to the microwave and possibly much more. Try washing it in the dishwasher in one of the pockets on the silverware tray. It might fly out of that though. Maybe put it under a bowl on the wrack as long as it can't fall through.
It really isn't safe to use sponges in the kitchen. It is best to use a dishcloth and change to a clean one every day. For those scrubbies, I put them in the dishwasher.
Teflon is not a good thing in a microwave! Do you have an automatic dishwasher? If so, just put it in the silverware basket each time you do a load of dishes. If you don't have an automatic dishwasher just soak it in a small bowl of distilled vinegar overnight and that will disinfect it :-)
