    I've always thrown my 'sponges' in the dishwasher, then into microwave for at least 5 minutes.

    Then how do you 'scrub' baked on stuff? Wash off the oven top? I know, you are 20 something and use tons of Bounty towels?

    They also say you should either buy a new toothbrush after a couple months or put it in a cup of half water and half peroxide.

    For sure! Actually, (ok I'm a bit over the top), I use [ame]http://www.amazon.com/Oral-B-Triumph-Professional-Power-Toothbrush/dp/B000A7W5DI/ref=pd_sim_hpc_1/102-9661131-3976152[/ame]

    I buy the 6 pak replacements and change about every month. The brushes are 'covered' but I still wash in dishwasher and zap every week. For some reason they do wear out quick.

    Never leave your toothbrush on the bathroom counter uncovered! Hope you haven't just eaten:
