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.

        This product saves space and keeps sponges separate if, as I do, you have a sponge for things that contact food and another for spills on the floor, etc. Also the riff on the ambiguity of "good" is funny.

          After trying to decide, for some time, whether or not this product was really necessary, I finally bought it for myself. It is small enough to fit my small sink but large enough to hold regular size sponges. I like that the sponges are handy, but out of the way and that they can dry out totally between uses.

            I've had my sponge holder for quite some time when my sister-in-law noticed it last November. She kept pestering me for the place where I bought it but because I didn't have a Christmas gift for her I put off answering her question in a direct fashion.
            As soon as she left I ordered her not one but two sponge holders because she has two homes. It was fun getting her a gift that I knew she wanted and I was the person who knew where to get it!

                My daughter has talked about getting this sponge holder for several years so I finally bought it for her. She was surprised and so excited you would think I had given her a gold ring or something extra special, so I guess it was extra special to her. She loves it.

                      I love this thing (and you can really only call it a "thing"). It looks great in my kitchen by the sink. My husband was storing sponges under the sink in a jar, and now they are out and ready to use in a nice looking "thing."
