kitchen sponge holder

We all need a kitchen sponge holder. Here’s why.

Let’s talk about sponges and bacteria because these are the two classic problems we have when we are around the kitchen.

Usually, we clean our dishes with a sponge knowing that it could give our utensils and kitchen tools a good clean.

Think again.

Do you know that sponges can be a breeding ground for bacteria? If you are not careful in cleaning your sponges as well it might be more harmful to use them on your dishes.

A kitchen sponge is the number 1 cause of germs in the whole house. The moist absorber and micro-crevices that make a sponge a great cleaner are also a cozy hot spot for germs that can be difficult to disinfect.

Don’t ever think that cleaning your kitchen’s surfaces with a sponge can be a good idea.

Dirty sponges will only transfer bacteria from one item to the other.

Not yet concerned?

Think about this, 1 bacterium cell can divide in 10 to 20 minutes, and in 4 hours you could have 8,000 bacteria then imagine if it gets to 24 hours by then it will be millions of unnoticeable bacteria lurking in your kitchen.

But don’t lose hope!

You can prevent the spread of these germs from your kitchen by using sponge holders or a sponge sink caddy for your sponges!

Although choosing sponge holders seems easy, there are still some considerations that need to be taken like its features and the benefits of convenience it will give to arrange the clutters in your sink.

Benefits of Having Dry Sponges and Dishcloths?

kitchen sponge holder

Sponges and dishcloths are cleaning accessories that we can do without. In fact, these are the cleaning tools that most Americans prefer and have been used for generations.

Having dry sponges and dishcloths prevents germs from accumulating and transferring them around the kitchen.

1. Keeps your family away from illness-causing germs.

2. Helps limit bacteria from multiplying too quickly.

3. Keeping your dishcloths and sponges dry can prolong their usage.

4. Dry sponges and dishcloths can effectively collect grimes and wipes easily to make the countertop clean.

5. Prevents catching up mildew and foul smell making your kitchen safe from microbes.

Sponge caddy and dish sponge holder are great ways to make your sponges and dishcloths dry.

It’ll give them much ventilation and airflow to drain well and won’t smell.

However, to prevent germs to spread you need to clean your kitchen surfaces and your dishwashing tools as well.

Do’s and Don’ts in Cleaning Your Sponges and Dishcloths

Researchers found that high levels of contaminations in sponges make them unacceptable to use.

But why are we still using it as our major cleaning tool? While it has been around for generations, its function and cleaning benefits are apparent and instantly noticeable.

Abrasive sponges are good for getting out stuck-on food and non-abrasive sponges are great for wiping spills and cleaning dishes without a scratch. It is also a money-saver as it is cheap and disposable as well.

Cleaning your sponges and dishcloths is also imperative for your family’s health.

Here’s what you should do and not do in cleaning your sponges.


1. Put them on your dishwasher on a dry cycle. (Avoid putting your sponge in the microwave because it’s a fire hazard).

2. Wash dish towels or dishcloths daily and frequently. Put it on the hot cycle of your washing machine and dry it on a high setting.

During summer, you can hang them dry outside so that they can be sanitized naturally in the sun.

3. In two or three weeks your sponges most likely harboring bacteria so it is safe to replace them regularly or if you notice an unpleasant smell at any point then it’s time to toss them out and replace them.

4. Wring your sponges and dishcloths completely and let dry every after use. Wash off well if there’s food or debris stuck on it.

5. Let them dry on a kitchen sponge holder or sponge caddy and avoid placing them under the sink or wet countertops as they will take longer to dry and bacteria will thrive.


1. Don’t be frugal when it comes to replacing your kitchen sponges when your family’s health is at stake.

Many of us keep sponges until they are dirty and smell bad. While others wait for them to fall apart before they could throw them out. Don’t wait months before you replace them.

2. Don’t use sponges to wipe on meat juices. Cleaning up spills can increase the chance of spreading foodborne pathogens. Instead, use paper towels or disinfectant wipes on meat juices.

3. Don’t forget the dishcloths. If not cared for properly, our dishcloths will also be a source of bacteria. Make sure that they are washed frequently and dried completely.

Features of Kitchen Sponge Holder and Sink Caddy

kitchen sponge holder

It is easy to assume that all kitchen sponge holders have the same level of performance, but a number of factors affect their functionality. It should have the right size and is made of high-grade materials.

It should also have proper ventilation holes to allow water to drain and have that stylish look that keeps up with your kitchen’s decors.

To learn more about the important features that a best kitchen sponge holder should have, keep reading as we give you the list.

1. Type

Kitchens sponge holders can accommodate one or two sponges while sink caddy can be able to take in brushes, soap, and dishwashing tools but both come in different types.

  • Countertops sink caddies can be a good choice for small kitchen sinks and countertops that have limited space. However, you need to drain them regularly as they can easily fill up with water due to their small size.
  • Tray sponge holder can hold up a single sponge. The best sponge holder should have a ribbed design or perforated bottom with a dish tray underneath to collect water and allow the sponge to dry properly.
  • In-sink sponge holders and caddies are installed in the inside of the sink whether with suction cups, a ledge, or another water-resistant type of adhesive. They’re convenient to use because the water drips directly inside the sink and it clears out water sliding on the countertop.
  • Two-in-one soap dispensers and sink caddies are usually designed to have a sponge tray above the soap dispenser. This is great for space-saving.
  • Saddle-type holders and caddies are designed to be useful if you have a double sink. It rests in between the two dividers and provides storage for both sides.

2. Material

Most sink caddies and kitchen sponge holders are made of materials from plastics, silicone, and stainless steel.

  • Plastics and silicone are used for budget-friendly sink caddies and sponge holders. They are easy to clean and the type of plastics used are the kind that doesn’t rust or minimize mold development. Translucent plastics are helpful to see the dirt and gunk built-up that settles at the bottom of the holder. However, they aren’t as durable as the ones made with stainless steel.
  • Stainless steel sponge holders and sink caddies are more durable and long-lasting but are expensive compared to plastics and silicone versions. It can withstand moisture exposure because it’s rust and corrosion-resistant. Easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
  • Aluminum chrome-plated materials are also used for sink caddy and sponge holders. They are a little cheaper than stainless steel and are durable, rust-proof, and corrosion-resistant as well.

3. Size/ capacity

The size and capacity of sponge holders vary but it usually is compact and won’t take much of the space in the sink. A standard sponge has a size of 4 inches long and 3inches wide so the smallest sponge holder will range around those dimensions.

Larger sink caddies and sponge holders that sit on the countertop or sink have room for multiple brushes and scrubbers.

4. Additional features

Some sink caddies put on these special features that provide added benefits.

  1. Suction cups are used to help in-sink holders to adhere to the sides of the sink better and can be moved and removed for cleaning.
  2. The perforated bottom allows for liquid to drain and additional perforated sides give better drainage.
  3. Some sponge holders have expandable brush holders that organize brushes with long handles without toppling over.
  4. Multiple compartments allow you to organize other cleaning tools easily and conveniently.

      5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kitchen wand

Just what I was looking for to store a fish wand. Sticks great to my stainless steel sink. Holds a sponge and dish wand nicely. It only comes with one sticky plastic adhesive. You only have one chance to put the adhesive/basket where you want it. Once it is on the sink it is impossible to move.

      Great quality

These keep your kitchen sink organized. We have been moving around the past few years and at each apartment I get one of these. They work and look nice, and are inexpensive enough to leave for the next tenants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Just tried in person to make sure. Yes it does but might be tight for two sponges that are 2 inches thick.

For other sponges, it perfectly fits as their combined thickness is only 1.5 inches.

Yes. This sink caddy is patented.

No. The brush and sponge in the pictures are not included. Very sorry about that. It wasn’t meant to confuse people but to illustrate what the sink caddy would look like in use.

No. We aim to produce the best sink caddy so we tested this thousands of times.

Some people might’ve been too enthusiastic to use the sponge holder they sometimes forget to follow instructions properly.

That’s why we ask them the following questions.

1. Did you attach the clear adhesive on a fully clean and dry surface?

2. Pushed out all the air by rubbing the surface completely?

3. Waited 30min before clipping the sponge holder?

If they did all this and they’re within the 30-day refund/return window, we’ll ask them to send a photo of the adhesive, we’ll check it out to see what went wrong and send a replacement if needed.

It’s stainless steel, which is known to be rustproof and it will not corrode readily like plain old steel would. We believe that to be the best and most durable sink caddy, we need to use stainless steel on our product.

Yes. The holder stays in place but you can remove the basket easily.

We have a 30-day, no questions asked, money-back guarantee.


The adhesive is very sticky and will stick for a long time when attachment instructions are followed properly.

Yes it will. The 3M sticker holds strong to all surfaces. Please make sure to follow instructions and stick it securely. It also comes off without any mess if desired.

Water won’t affect the tape as long as sticking instructions were followed. Once the tape is stuck, it’s very hard to remove it unwittingly or accidentally.

Follow this link here.

The basket can be removed easily if you want to remove it. But it doesn’t slip and slide because it’s affixed snugly to the bracket.

We have customers tell us that they sometimes hit the basket hard accidentally and it’s still on tight!

Yes. The tape is hard to remove accidentally but is easy to remove if you want it removed. We had reports that it comes off without any residue.

Our customers had no problem removing the tapes to move the sponge holder from one sink to another. If you’re not sure you can buy an adhesive remover from the hardware shop. It’s a liquid that removes super glue and any other adhesive-type stuff.

Sorry no. They’re built together and it’s a feature. I’m sure you can find one w/o the side brush if needed but this is a great feature in my opinion.

It is only recommended to apply the adhesive backing on non-porous surfaces like stainless steel, ceramic, tiles. Not on wood.
