According to certain studies, by popping a sponge or plastic scrubbing pads in a microwave for 2 minutes on high, you can kill 99.9% of bacteria living on it. Microwave only sponges or plastic scrubbers that do not contain steel or other metals. Make sure the sponge or scrubber is wet, not dry.
Two minutes should be enough to kill most disease-causing germs. Be careful in removing the sponge from the microwave because it will be hot and should not be handled immediately after zapping.
