Spray for Cleaning a Sponge?

by Andrea Butje on September 11, 2012

Sometimes people ask me if I know how to make a spray for cleaning a sponge. I do indeed!

If we're going to make a spray for cleaning a sponge, there are several great recipes we can use. They all involve water, white vinegar and essential oils.

Sponge sprays for sinks, tiles and bath tubs can also include hydrosols, castile soap and baking soda for extra cleaning strength.

Citrus Sponge Spray

12 oz (360 ml) Lime hydrosol
3 tablespoons white vinegar
20 drops Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon)
15 drops Grapefruit essential oil (Citrus paradisi)
15 drops Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)

I recommend making this product fresh every few weeks.

I also use this spray to clean my sponges at the kitchen sink. I leave a small bottle of the spray by the sponge, and each day I spray both sides to keep it fresh and free of germs. Your kitchen will smell great and the sponges are kept clean!
