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.

Don't purchase - it will rust

        Comments about SPONGESTER:

        The claim that it "shouldn't rust" but that it "could rust" - - - IT WILL RUST. We had it for less than a week before we started noticing rust spots. Not happy.

            I never wanted anyone to use the sponge I use for our dishes to wipe up spills or clean the counters. This is the perfect way to designate a sponge for each and they can air out.

              My daughter is living at home with me again. We do things separately and together. We recently had a discussion about not using dishwashing sponges on counters/floor and vice- versa. This is a clear and simple solution. I presented it to her as a gift after some cleaning and construction in our home was completed. Perfect for a fresh start!!!

                    We have been looking for a tidy way to organize our sponges, and this product definitely fits the bill. They look so nice stacked neatly on the compact design. The Spongester adds an element of tidiness to our normally cluttered kitchen. It's made me want to wipe down the countertops more and generally keep things neater.

                        I like the product a lot. It looks great in the kitchen, I like the convenience of it and it is strong and seems very durable. I wish the "good sponge" and "evil sponge" were a little easier to read. Overall, great product. Does the job well.

                        It fits well and looks good on back of my slate sink. Separates soapy sponge with scratchy side separate from sponge for wood counters, which we never put soap on. Delays mildew.

                            The good/evil sponge holder has worked just fine for us. Sponges stay cleaner (just remember to rinse well after use). The holder itself is compact and takes up little room on the counter. It is easy to clean and dry. I wish I had known about these years ago.

                              I love having the two kitchen sponges in a neat location instead of one sponge on either side of the sink faucet. Plus the holder keeps the sponges off the granite and also allows them to drain.
