How Dish Scrubbie Started
Our founder, Hanna hated washing the dishes – like most normal people. One of the reasons being how unsanitary and stinky a kitchen sponge gets. Sour, mildewy, and slimy.
She didn’t want to touch the thing. One day while visiting her mom, she found a crocheted scrubber and was blown away by how good it cleaned and didn’t build odors. With the initial prototype in hand, she set out to create her masterpiece.
Colorful Fruit Scrubbies
With kitchen chores being a “chore”, Hanna wanted to create something fun. Something that would be bright and cute to bring some life to boring dish washing.
From there a strawberry was born along with his little friends- blueberry, eggplant, watermelon, and lemon.
Dish Scrubbie is more than a no smell sponge alternative
We believe that the best kitchen dish scrubbie should smell fresh while actually doing the job it’s supposed to do.
Clean and no smell.
Sounds simple enough?
We’ve found that this is not always the case for cheap kitchen sponges.
- They either scrub efficiently but they’re hard to clean and they smell.
- Or they don’t smell as bad, but they can’t clean that well.
Even the big brands with the best cellulose sponge for the kitchen are the same. They’re just expensive but for some reason, they’re not very good.
That’s the reason why we created a no-compromise sponge alternative dish scrubbie.
It lasts longer than smelly sponges, it’s easy to clean and it’s built to scrub and clean which makes it the best kitchen sponge alternative.
Are there ways to minimize that stinky sponge aroma?
Yes. There are a few things that can help deodorize sponges.
Daily sponge deodorizing routine
- Remove food particles from it
- Wash it thoroughly after use
- Air dry
As needed or weekly deodorizing routine
- Remove food particles
- Wash it thoroughly
- Air dry
- Wet it with clean water again
- Put in the microwave for 2 minutes on high settings
That’s it. You’ve cleaned it and it should be smell free for at least a day. Then you have to do it again the next time it smells.
The microwave technique kills 99% of disease-causing germs.
Most people would just throw away sponges when they smell. In my opinion, this is a good but very impractical approach.
On the other hand, the microwave technique, while not hard to do is just time-consuming and it’s not 100% effective.
According to the Seattle Times, “…researchers discovered more of the potentially pathogenic bacteria, like Moraxella osloensis…” from sponges that’s been microwaved.
So essentially you’ve just killed off the weaker germs. But the stronger and adaptable bacteria are left in your microwaved sponge.
What does this really mean for parents?
It means adults with a stronger immune system will probably be safe from infection. But kids from age zero to 5 might not be so lucky.
It’s the reason why pediatricians will tell new parents to use brushes to clean baby bottles. Same with your toddler’s pacifiers and training cups.
Sponges, especially the smelly ones that you microwave, will make people with a weak immune system sick.
Markus Egert, a microbiologist at the University of Furtwangen in Germany said that “When people at home try to clean their sponges, they make it worse…”
It’s similar to giving germs antibiotic resistance by using too much than that required by your prescription.
