How to Disinfect the Kitchen Sponge

After not washing clothes since July 21st , I did 5 loads of laundry yesterday (July 24th). Already I’m up to 9 loads of wash this week (my goodness, will I ever reduce it to 6 loads per week?). I packed the washing machine to the gills to ensure that I wasn’t being wasteful.  I […]
