Why you should always have 2 sponges in the kitchen

Hygienic dishwashing requires two different sponges

We usually use one sponge to wash the dishes. We wash the plates, appliances and pots, and then quickly wipe down the sink with the remaining foam.

The blogger who runs TheCleaningChannel, an Instagram account with cleaning tips, says this is a big mistake. "It is imperative to have two sponges in the kitchen: one for dishes and a separate one for the sink.

That's because the sink, where we collect used dishes and defrost and wash food, is one of the dirtiest places in the house. For example, after raw meat, really dangerous bacteria can accumulate there. And food scraps are a great breeding ground for them.

That's why you should only use a "dirty" sponge to clean your sink. You can also use it to clean off food residues before loading the dishes into the dishwasher.

The clean sponge, on the other hand, should only be used for hand washing. Never use it for any other purpose. In this way, you will avoid even the risk of infecting your plates and forks with bacteria.
