There are other sponges on the market with antibacterial benefits, but what's unique about these is the sponge itself. Made of amaterial that combines the best of both regular synthetic and cellulose sponges, Lysol's Household Sponges ($1.99/2, right) are absorbent, like cellulose, to soak up spills and dry surfaces and they're also flexible and durable, like synthetic. I find the contoured shape comfortable to hold, and I like that this new type of foam rinses and wrings out easily, and stays soft, even when dry.
In addition to the sponges, the new Lysol line includes a Liquid Dispensing Dishwand ($2.99 for the wand and three refills, below), Scour Pads ($2.99/3), and reusable Kitchen Wipes ($2.99/6). Nothing is more inefficient that cleaningwith dirty tools, and now thanks to Lysol, cleaning your kitchen will be well worth the effort.
