Picky Eater: Absorb the difference with an EcoSponge
IF YOUR KITCHEN counter is like mine, it is in need of a wipe
so many times a day that it would be depressing to count.
Please dont make me. Since I happen to be appointed Sponge-Mom at my house,
I smiled when help arrived in the form of an EcoSponge, an all natural wiper marketed by the Bay Area-based Pacific Dry Goods.
A week later, I confess that I am in love.
Unlike nylon kitchen sponges, these sponges are made of viscose, which is derived from wood chips.
The resulting fabric is so soft that I can use it to clean my favorite wine glass; so absorbent that it does not leave sponge tracks on my shiny granite counter tops.
The sponge wrings out so well and dries so fast that it still smells fresh � after a week on the job.
As soon as it even thinks about smelling bad, the instructions tell me to toss it in the dishwasher for a deep-clean.
The company also makes EcoTowls that absorb 10 times their weight in liquids.
