If there’s one chore I hate most, it’s doing the dishes. I feel like after I eat, getting my hands all soapy and wet is the last thing I want to do. I have a dishwasher, but sometimes, handwashing is all that’s needed (especially for things like pots and pans). I’m always looking for new ways to make my least favorite chore even a little more enjoyable. I just found something great, too.
OXO Soap Dispensing Sponge Holder is the little item I never knew I needed in my kitchen, but it has already changed my dishwashing routine. For starters, it takes up almost no space—it’s just the size of a sponge, but taller. A sponge can rest on top with ease, making for a sleek space-saving little hack. But it’s not just a holder—it’s also a soap dispenser. All you do is push down, as if it were a button and it fills your sponge up with suds. I can barely express how much better this is than trying to finagle my sponge-filled hand around a pump, and how often the soap would miss the sponge entirely. The top of the dispenser is also slanted, and has a drip tray, so if there is a little bit of water still in your sponge, it will catch it and dispose of it easily.
