    Kitchen scrubby brush with bristles! It doesn’t stink, and I can throw it in the dishwasher =)

    @AB Bride:  Bleach and paper towels on the countertops.  I also have some dishrags but no matter how clean they are, I never feel like my countertops are clean unless I bleach them and I don’t want to ruin my dishcloths so I wipe up the bleach with paper towels.

    I stopped using sponges years ago.  They stink and they make your hands stink no matter how clean they are.  I think of sponges as a huge bacteria fest.  ICK!

    I use an all surface cleaner and paper towels for counter tops.

    Sponge or scrub brush for dishes, bottle brush on travel mugs and resuable water bottles.

    @jackieee:  +1 for pots and pans. We do have a dish cloth too, but those get thrown out regularly. Ew.

    I use a plastic brush scrubber that I can just toss into the dishwasher.

    @AB Bride:  Paper towels! At least on the counters. I would never touch my counters with a sponge or dish cloth! Gross!

    I also am a fan of a Dish Brush.  And I keep a curly-q scrubber, scotchbrite pad, and steel wool for various other Pots & Pans / Stove Top / Sink clean up.  Counters I use Lysol Wipes.

    Hate sponges & dishcloths (germ city).  And not a huge fan of dish towels either (same reasoning).  I do use a lot of Paper Towels in the Kitchen for various things (including hand drying).

    The ONLY time I use any sort of dish towel, is we have a special microfibre type (own several) that we use for glassware so as to make sure there are no spots… use em once and then toss them in the laundry.

    We have a scrubby on a handle that dispenses soap.. I use that  all the time.
