How To Color Code Your Cleaning Jobs With Sponge Daddy

by Jodi Shaw
In partnership with our friends at Scrub Daddy

Scrub Daddy is the most versatile cleaning sponge on the market today. No-fuss cleaning. Scrub free action. Soapy results. Scratch-resistant. All of these are the reason why when it comes to color coding the cleaning jobs in our family home, I turn to Scrub Daddy’s brand new line of bright color sponges called Sponge Daddy.

Scrub Daddy is the most successful line of products to ever come out of Shark Tank, and this mom can see why.

I’m in love with Scrub Daddy products and don’t like to use anything else when it comes to keeping my home clean. Why? Because they work, plain and simple.

Why it’s important to use color-coded sponges when cleaning your home.

Years ago, when I ran my own cleaning business with my aunt, we used to clean the dirtiest houses. I mean, you’d open the fridge and nearly puke, it was so disgusting inside.

Even back then, we used to color-code our cleaning routine. Color-coded cleaning is important because it reduces the risk of cross-contamination and the spread of germs. Because let’s face it, who wants gross toilet germs spread all over their counter-top in the kitchen?

Not this mom!

Blue for the Kitchen

Having kids means never having a clean kitchen. There are always dishes on the counter or in my dish rack. Cups and bowls just left out, plates with dried on food, and of course crap is always left all over my counters. Needing a proper way to clean, I turn to Sponge Daddy.

One side of the sponge is gritty and changes its scrubbing ability based on hot or cold water. It is scratch-resistant, meaning you can use it on practically any surface.

I have used mine on my brand new Heritage the rock (pots and pans) set, and I love that there is no possibility of ruining them. Plus, how easy they come clean without too much elbow grease is a bonus.

Why is using a different colored sponge important when cleaning the bathroom?

The bathroom is one of the dirtiest places in the home. The bathroom is where all the germs go to coordinate their attack on us. From door handles to toilet seats, the bathroom is the one place color-coded sponges are a definite must!

Yellow is used for low-risk areas in your bathroom such as your sink, tub, and tiles. Remember when washing your sink don’t miss washing your taps as well.

It’s also a good idea to have a hand towel on your counter so that your guests can dry their hands before touching the bathroom door knob to exit the washroom.

Orange is used for high-risk areas

The dreaded toilet. Nobody wants to even think about cleaning their toilet. It’s disgusting, but next to our fridge and stove, it is the most commonly used thing in our homes. So it’s very important you have a separate sponge to help you when cleaning the — poop factory.

Using a different colored sponge stops cross-contamination, which occurs when using the same cloth or sponge to clean multiple areas in your home. Imagine cleaning your toilet with one sponge, and then using that sponge to clean your sink, tub or even the counters in your kitchen.

Can we say ewww grosssssss

Would you want to make dinner on a counter that had toilet germs spread all over it? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

It’s more than just germs, too. Deadly bacterias is formed from traces of human feces (poop) being left behind. Things like E coli and Norwalk virus, which can kill.

Sponge Daddy makes it so simple to keep your home safe and germ-free. But it helps the spread of germs from one room to another.

That’s something to love.

What makes Sponge Daddy the best choice?

Sponge Daddy has the same unique technology used in all the Scrub Daddy products. One side of the sponge has ResoFoam which is 6x more absorbent than the leading brand.

While the other side has super-scrub Flex-Texture that turns firm in cold water for those tough scrubbing jobs, and softer in hot water, for light scrubbing duties. Adjustable scrubbing power means you have the right tool no matter the job you are using the sponge for.

I could go on and on about all the things I love about Sponge Daddy and the Scrub Daddy line of products, but honestly you have to go out and get one to try it out and see for yourself.

You’ll be amazed, I swear!

Scrub Daddy products can be found at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Canadian Tire and various other retailers. They also aren’t expensive. One pack of Sponge Daddy sponges retails for $5.99 CDN (basically 2 bucks a sponge) and one sponge has lasted me over a month before having to replace it.


I wish to thank Scrub Daddy for sending me these products and for creating a line of product my family trusts and uses on a daily basis. I think it’s cool when you find something so simple and it makes your life easier, more affordable and fun in the long run!
