Spongester

This stainless steel rack helps expunge bacteria by keeping your "good sponge" and "evil sponge" separate.

$28.00

Fight Grime

To wipe out bad guys (germs), you have to sink to their level--the kitchen sink, to be exact. This industrial-grade stainless steel rack helps expunge bacteria while keeping it clean with two distinct shelves for your separate sponges. A slot for your "good sponge" (used for counter top and dishes) and "evil sponge" (sink and drain) helps you keep track of your scrubbers without sacrificing space or style. The SpongesterTM was designed by Michael G. Frank to appease a former germ-conscious roommate, its smart shape prevents cross-contamination with bendable, semi-perforated shelves that encourage drainage and inhibit bacterial growth. Made in New York.

        Hate having the sponges sit on counter tops or the bottom of the sink. This is awesome.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Spongester:

              My husband loves to organize every aspect of our lives so what could be better than an attractive way to keep track of sponges. He already cuts the corner off one scrubby sponge used for heavier cleaning to differentiate between that one and the one we use on dishes or spots. Now we have true "homes" for both the "clean" sponge AND the "rough" sponge.

                  This was exactly the sponge holder I've been looking for! Compact and easy to use; it stores at least two sponges and allows them to dry off of my granite!

                    This is the perfect gift for the systematic virgos and "neat freaks" in your life. Everybody knows (or should know!) that there is a hierarchy to sponges, and sponges can only travel down this hierarchy, never up! This sponge holder makes it easy for guests and other folks in the household to follow the rules - good sponge is for dishes, evil sponge is for dirtier jobs.

                    The design is sleek, cute, easy to clean, and stable on the counter. The holes on both "shelves" help air circulate around your sponges so they stay as non-evil as possible. (Pro tip: always squeeze all the water out of your sponges after using so they dry faster and don't get stinky!)

                    My one complaint is that the bottom shelf is angled, so evil sponge likes to slide out, particularly if you use slippery sponges like Dobie. A minor quibble for a product that I nevertheless LOVE.

                        I put this right next to my sink and it holds the sponge on one shelf and a scrubby on the next. Very convenient and helps the sponge dry out.
