Kitchen sponge are not only useful for cleaning. They are versatile for all home purposes. Learn what you can do it! 1. Make an ice pack. Freeze saturated kitchen sponges in plastic zip-top bags. As the ice melts, the moisture stays sopped up the sponge, minimizing mess. 2. Make a nail-polish remover jar. Ditch the cotton-ball technique for removing nail polish and make a dip-and-twist jar by sticking a sponge soaked in remover inside a mason jar. 3. Entertain kids. Cut and tied into different shapes to make safe outdoor water bombs and a extra-quiet version of Jenga. 4. Home Pedicure. Place pieces of a cut-up sponge between your toes so you don't smudge your polish before it dries.
