Just throw it out

Note to self: sponges are not the place to pinch pennies.

I read somewhere that you should microwave your sponge to kill all the germs. I thought it said 2 minutes but that was clearly too long because smoke started pouring out of the microwave with a foul chemical smell that still lingers and I burned the thing completely up. It was nothing but a smoldering pile of ash when I pulled it out.

Next time, I'll just throw it out like I usually do.

    Ha! Also baking soda works. Rub it in and let it sit for at least 10 minutes.

    Ha ha ha. You killed Sponge Bob.

    Was it wet when you microwaved it? I microwave mine really wet and that way it also steams the inside of my microwave, making it much easier to clean.
