The Best Way to Clean a Sponge
Mix 3/4 cup of bleach in one gallon of water and soak the sponge for five minutes, then rinse – and that's it. In testing, the bleach solution killed 99.9% of the three bacteria strains from the test sponges (scrub and regular cellulose), which is the benchmark based on the EPA's requirement for sanitization of non-food-contact surfaces.

1. Microwave
The microwave was one of the next most effective, zapping 99.9% of germs.

2. Dishwasher
The dishwasher also killed 99.9% of germs. To use, add your sponge to a regular dishwasher load, using the "heated dry" setting.

3. Vinegar
This method eliminated 99.6% of bacteria. All you have to do is soak your sponge in full-strength vinegar for five minutes, then rinse.
