Benefits of Microwaving a Sponge

A microwave works by heating up items in a few seconds or minutes. Some advantages of using this device to clean a sponge include:

– Sterilizing: Several studies have suggested that microwaving a sponge for a few minutes could remove up to 99 percent of living germs and bacteria.

– Saving time: You can save a lot of time. Rather than going to the supermarket to purchase new ones, just throw away the old ones into the microwave and wait a few minutes.

– Saving money: By microwaving a sponge, you can use it many times before needing to spend money on new ones. [2]
