Time to Come Clean

Let's dish on grimy sponges. They do wonders for scrubbing pots and pans, but once they've sat around in their own puddles they're not so clean anymore. How do you help them not only stay dry and clean, but also look good doing so?

That was the challenge given by a family friend to husband and wife ceramicists Karen and Stephen Steininger. Their answer was this ingenious, stoneware sponge holder. Its handcrafted, goblet-like form and swirling decoration applied to its front make it a beautiful addition to your countertop. The vertical cut-out in its sides keeps both broad sides of the sponge exposed to circulating air for faster evaporation, and holds it up out of any water that accumulates below. Handmade in Altoona, Iowa.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Allows the sponge to dry between uses and prevents it from sitting in water. It fits nicely between my sink faucet and the raised granite on my island behind the sink. Many have noticed it, think it's a great idea and have commented on it. I'm purchasing some as gifts for family members that have noticed it. Only reason I didn't check "dishwasher safe" is I am not certain whether it is or not. Prefer to wash by hand anyway.

I bought this product as a gift for three people and myself. I use it everyday. It is so handy and my sponge dries much faster now. I would definitely buy this product again for myself or as a gift.
