Dishwashing sponges seem to get really smelly very quickly, and I always end up just throwing them away, but that is incredibly wasteful. I recently found this awesome video tutorial by Ehowhome, on YouTube, that described perfectly a really cool way to sterilize those nasty sponges in the microwave.
