When it comes to choosing the best shower sponges, there is no one-size-fits-all approach — so instead, consider your pressure preferences (do you prefer an invigorating scrub, or a gentler massage?), your skin type, and practicality (for example, do you want a sponge with a long handle so you can reach your lower back, or a sponge like a mitt that you can wear on your hand?). Ahead, you'll find five great shower sponges that fulfill all these criteria and more — but first, a word to the wise.
You've probably heard this before, but it bears repeating: Don't keep any bath sponge for too long because bacteria can quickly grow on — and in — them. Hang your sponge outside of the moist, warm shower area so it can dry properly, and keep it clean by microwaving or heating it occasionally. If yours has an odor or anything growing on it, toss it. Otherwise, replace it about every two months (or every month, if your sponge is made of real luffa).
