    Clean Your Kitchen Sponges Naturally with Essential Oils

    April 27, 2015

    I like to clean kitchen sponges naturally...and frequently! I’ve always been a little unsettled at the thought of all the bacteria in my kitchen sponge proliferating at rapid rates. I don’t want to wash my dishes with that! Sure, you can pop the sponge in the dishwasher or microwave, but what about between the times you run the dishwasher?
