Another Fun Fact

I taught this fact to Kate this morning & Summer suggested it be today's fun fact. Here ya go, fun & practicality all rolled up in one.

Did you know... microwaving a sponge for 30 seconds you kill the bacteria, and thus the smell on it? You can also run it through the dishwasher, and Kate even suggested running it through the wash.

This is a 4000x microscopic zoom of bacteria living on a stinking kitchen sponge. According to the research of this particular bacteria, most of it came from old milk and human skin cells.
