Hey guys! I just wanted to “pop” in today to share a cool little product that I recently discovered:
Remember those little washcloths & toys that would “grow” when you put them in water?? This is pretty much the same concept, but for grown-ups! Pop-up sponges are compressed into tiny little units so you can store a TON of extra sponges in a very tight space, and then they expand to full-size when you use them!
If you have limited storage space in your kitchen, then you know that every extra inch can be a big deal. I love having a good stockpile of supplies, but it can be tricky to stay well-stocked without cluttering my cupboards. Here are a couple of the pop-up sponges I’ve found:
The Posh Pop-Up
These sponges from Williams-Sonoma have the best ratings for quality, but the price tag is a little bit steep at $16.95 for a pack of six! If you are picky about sponges, these are the best. They expand to a thicker size than others, they’re all natural, and they’ll last through quite a few washes in the dishwasher before needing a replacement.
Small & Sturdy
If you’re not as picky & don’t feel like shelling out for the Williams-Sonoma version, the pop-up sponges from EZ Brite had some pretty good reviews on Amazon. They’re not as large or thick as their more expensive counterparts (buyer beware – reviewers claimed that the actual product was much thinner than what is depicted in the photo), but they’re still all natural, and the price is more budget-friendly, ringing in at $15.95 for a pack of ten.
I’m not sure that they’d be worth the investment if you have plenty of space in your cupboards, but if you’re cooking in a teeny tiny kitchen, these could be a great way to save space while remaining well-stocked on supplies!
