Twice the Sponge
Like many people who came of age during The Depression, our grandparents are skilled at making their belongings last twice as long as expected. Even something that seems so inconsequential to us as a sponge can be made to go a lot further than usual. It’s pretty genius to do this hack.
Our grannies would cut one sponge into two sponges, and it’s actually pretty brilliant. How often do you require the full sponge for cleaning? May as well set half of it aside, doubling the life of that one sponge. And also, now that the sponge is smaller, it will dry faster and be less likely to gather bacteria.
