Before each use: Soak dry sponge in warm water until fully softened and expanded. Remove excess water by gently squeezing the sponge.
After each use:: Rinse sponge with clean, warm water and hang to dry in a well-ventilated area. Do not twist or squeeze the sponge too hard or leave it in a damp/humid place. Extended moisture will cause the konjac fibers to disintegrate.
As needed: Disinfect the sponge by soaking it in hot (not boiling) water for about 3-5 minutes and then hang to dry.
