    Thank you, THANK YOU for this. Smelly kitchen rags and sponges have haunted me for years. I tried putting one in the sun yesterday and it worked!

    This makes perfect sense.  I do this with my son’s cloth diapers.  Works well.  Can’t wait to try this on my sponges. Thanks!!

    I discovered YEARS ago that some dish detergents will sour sponges and others will not. Don’t have a proven reason just a hunch. I believe it is a reaction with s/s sinks and particular detergents. Brands made by moon and stars folks (I’m showing myage) seem to be most prone. When used with a ceramic sink doesn’t seem to be a problem. The sponge makersust love this modern problem. Dont remember this to be as much of a problem “back in the day”
