Calender Sponge Review and Giveaway

How often do you change your kitchen sponge? Did you know you should change it every 30 days as there are germs and bacteria lurking in them and can make you and your family sick. With this in mind Wendy Lovato and her brother came up with Calendar Sponges as a reminder when you change it as it has the month stamped on it. Did you know kitchen sponges have over 200,000 germs which is more than a toilet set! Kitchen sponges provide the perfect environment for food borne pathogens, yeasts and molds to multiply. That’s why it’s so important to sanitize your kitchen sponges between uses and replace them every month! After 2-3 days, your kitchen sponge is swimming with millions of bacteria, specifically E. coli, salmonella, or campylobacter. I recently was able to review these sponges and without having this knowledge right in my face you forget how germy sponges are and how often to sanitize and replace.
My Opinion: I like this and the idea as with my busy schedule all I have to do is look at the sponge and remember what month it is and when the month is up throw it away and every few days sanitize to keep me and my family safe from bacteria.
Disclaimer: I was in no way compensated for this review and this is solely my own opinion which may differ from yours.

  1. I cut my sponges in half and toss them more often. I don't have a lot of dishes though.

  2. I learned that that kitchen sponges and dishrags can hold literally billions of bacteria and they should be sanitized between uses and kept no longer than 30 days.

  3. Over the course of a month, billions of bacteria grow on your kitchen sponges.


    I learned that sponges and dishrags can hold literally billions of bacteria and should not be kept more than a month.


  5. I learned cleaning kitchen sponges in your dishwasher, microwave or cleaning solution does not completely eradicate the harmful bacteria and germs living in your sponges. I don't even do that but thought there was some truth to it.

  6. I learned that "The kitchen sponge is one the dirtiest items in your household."
