In an effort to green their clean routines, some Apartment Therapy staffers are taking on small shifts at home, replacing their usual products and tools with more eco-friendly versions.
Have you ever picked up your kitchen sponge to do the dishes only to find that it smells totally musty? And not only that, but you have no more sponges left. If this has happened to you and all you could think was "there has to be a better way!" fear not, you're not alone in this. I have had full-on existential crises over how germy and gross sponges can get, and throwing them away so often feels totally wasteful. In an effort to be a little more green—and feel a lot less grimy—I decided to try an alternative: the Kuhn Rikon silicone sponge.
