Research shows that the dirtiest object found in the average home resides not in the bathroom, but in the kitchen! And the guilty party is none other than that multipurpose kitchen sponge!
Bacteria love moist conditions — one single bacteria cell can multiply by a factor of eight million in only 24 hours — and that brightly colored yellow and green synthetic sponge takes forever to dry! Mine is always still soggy in the morning — a happy harborer of all kinds of nasties like E. coli, salmonella and staphylococcus!
So, get ready for my late night infomercial …
If you are sick of living in a cesspool of germs and tired of that moldy sponge stinking up your kitchen, check out the Original Gentle Spaghetti Scrub!
The gentle scrub made from naturally abrasive peach pits, requires little to no detergent and lasts for months. Perfect for messy cleaning jobs, its spaghetti-like strands won’t get clogged with food particles and it rinses off clean — every time! Just wad it up in a ball, use as you normally would to scrub, rinse and hang over the faucet. Its unique design allows for ample airflow and your Spaghetti Scrub will dry in a snap.
The Original Spaghetti Scrub is gentle enough to use on wood and plastic, but tough enough for stainless steel too!
But wait, there’s more!
If your cleanup requires additional grit — there is an Original Spaghetti Scrub for that job, too! Made from corn cobs, the yellow/coarse Spaghetti Scrub is tough enough to tackle the outdoor grill and can peel vegetables, too!
Um, okay, enough with the Ron Popeil imitation.
I’m not going to recommend it for peeling vegetables, but I can testify it does perform as advertised. It stays pliable when dry and never stinks. I use the pink/gentle scrub on my stainless steel pans and it works every bit as well as the green, scratchy side of a sponge.
I’m sure you’ve heard the old adage, “a dry sponge is a happy sponge,” and it’s true — bacteria can’t survive without moisture. Toss your stinking sponge in the garbage today and pick up an environmentally friendly Original Spaghetti Scrub.
Did you know there is more E. coli found in a kitchen sink then in a flushed toilet? Okay, now that is just gross! —Karen
