Most people wouldn’t think twice about where to put their sponge when they’re done cleaning dishes.
But for some, this is a daily dilemma.
Do you place the sponge on the counter or in the sink?
If you put it in the sink, does it go in the drain or next to the faucet?
And what about bacteria?
Where’s the best place to store your sponge so that it doesn’t become a breeding ground for harmful germs?
Having a sponge holder will help solve all these problems and more.
To help you out in choosing, let’s look at the top eight sponge holders that not only hold your sponge and keep it clean, but also look great for your kitchen sink.
Using Metal Sponge Holders
When it comes to keeping your kitchen sink clean, one of the best ways to do so is by using a sponge holder. There are a variety of different holders you can choose from, but one of the best types is a metal holder.
One of the main benefits of using a metal holder is that it’s very easy to clean.
All you need to do is rinse it off with water and it will be good as new. This is much easier than trying to clean a plastic or rubber holder.
Another great benefit of using a metal holder is that it will not rust.
This means you can use it for years without having to worry about it breaking down or corroding.
Let’s look at the top metal sponge holders you can use for your kitchen sink.
