Ok. I've seen a tip floating around on the interwebzz. And personally, we like the way we do it more than this tip. So we thought we'd share. But. If you like that other way, then AWESOME. You can still read our blog and we can be interweb friendz. Here's our way:
We just use a wooden soap dish - and it lifts our sponge up off the side of the sink so that it can dry out! (our exact soap dish here) They are so cheap and great at not letting our sponge mildew. And I've noticed they don't smell as bad as when you just leave them on the counter!
Why a soap dish is awesome: You just place the sponge on it and WALK AWAY! It might not dry it out AS much as the binder clip would, but our sponges dry it super fast.
Ok - now the other one is still a super cool idea of using a binder clip to lift up the sponge.
My problems with it: I don't wanna hafta attempt to open up a binder clip when I have slippery wet hands. I can barely open those suckers sometimes! (boohoo, my hard life, i know :) )Also, I don't like that it leaves a huge indention (and even tears) at the sponge. I'm cheap, yo! Also, it looks kinda silly being upright like that. Just bein' honest.
(also, I just noticed that tear and tear are spelled the same way but sound different. It must be impossible to learn english! If you tear up my sponge, my eyes will tear.)
Ok. Well. That's all. Two tips for the price of one. Except you know which one is obviously the better one (ours). :)
