Sponge my garbage

I constantly see questions online and in magazines and newspapers asking how to keep sponges smelling fresh. People. You can buy about a hundred sponges for a buck at the dollar store. When your sponge starts smelling like stinky feet, THROW IT AWAY. Go crazy. Buy a whole bag of new sponges. For a buck.

By the way, if you're the kind of person who waits until your sponge starts smelling like stinky feet before you throw it away, don't invite me over for dinner. I prefer to get my salmonella from peanut butter.

You know what? Don't even buy nasty ass sponges. They're little bacteria condominiums. Buy a sack of lovely colorful rags at the dollar store and use a new one every day. That's why God invented washing machines.

On another disgusting subject, I just saw a commercial for scented garbage bags. Allegedly, you need this product so your garbage won't stink up your house. Here's an idea. TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE!

Perfumed trash bags is the equivalent of a person with body odor bathing in cheap cologne.

some people put their wet, freshly rinsed sponge in a bowl in the microwave for 2 mins, every night. Some run it through the dishwasher or washing machine.

Dishwashers eat sponges by the way. I am with the fresh daily dishrag and one of those scrubber puffs.

Don't get me started on perfumed products to cover up smells.... and I never have Margaritas ;-)

Laurie said...

Steve - That makes everything better.

Zina - YES!

Mom - :)

Susan - We're together on everything except the margaritas.

Ok, this is just weird to me because I go to Wal Mart yesterday to get a few of them being trash bags. ALL they had left in the kind that I buy was "lemon fresh" scented...I looked at my mom and said WTF....why the hell do we need that???? She just laughed. I bought them anyway, because I needed them. While cleaning the kitchen and talking to my sister I took the trash out and got a new kind of shocked me when I took the bag out and got a actually smelled pretty good. HAHAHAHAHAHA

Jennifer - Aw, nice. However, I know you and you would never let your garbage get stinkier than the lemon fresh scent. :)
