cleaning-spongesI have sponges, rags, and cloths for every cleaning job in the house. Sometimes it is hard to remember which sponge or rag I used for cleaning the toilet, so I just keep the rags apart from my regular laundry so that a particularly dirty rag or sponge doesn't contaminate anything else.

Tipnut reader Margie says she separates her cleaning cloths from her regular "good" items by clipping off a corner of the cleaning sponge, rag, or towel. That way, she won't get nasty, dirty grunge on her nice hand towels, or use a germ-filled sponge to do her dishes.

I buy all my cleaning sponges and rags in bulk, so many of them are the same color, and it is sometimes hard to remember which sponge is for dishes and which one is for cleaning up a mess on the floor. With the clip tip, I no longer have to worry about germ transference.
