I am guilty of using sponges until they are falling apart or stained with grime or tomato sauce. If you use sponges, upgrade to some new ones. Or, consider switching to dishcloths and cleaning cloths that you can throw in the washing machine.
If you use makeup sponges … or natural sponges for artwork, check out their condition as well.
Only if this doesn’t apply to you: Delete 3-to-5 emails that you’ve been holding onto for more than a year.
