In all likelihood, the most disgusting thing in your kitchen is not that tub of yogurt growing legs in the back of your fridge. It's probably your sponge. Used to soak up old bits of food or to wipe up the odd spill on the floor, sponges are then left to rot in a moist puddle on your counter. Step one to a less nasty life: get two sponges, one for dishes and another for surfaces your dog sits on. Step two: store said sponges in the Spongester ($28). Not only does it help you easily keep track of which is which, its ventilated design promotes drainage, discouraging bacteria growth.
