When you put a wet sponge on the surface of your sink, the bottom side doesn't always dry quickly, and it can get pretty nasty after awhile. This simple trick lets your sponge drip-dry and stay clean.
We've shown you one way to keep your sponges dry with binder clips, but if you don't have any of the miracle office supplies around, you can make sure the entire sponge dries by cutting a whole in the centre. After seeing Robert Audroué's circular sponge, I wanted to figure out a way to create the same effect myself — and it turns out it's just as easy as it looks. Cut a hole slightly smaller than your tap's handle in the middle of the sponge, then just slip it on.
