Hey Guys,
so the sponge I ordered for cleaning my rubbers gets really dry (due to the hot weather where I live) and basically becomes like a brick. The sponge is YINHE Table Tennis Cleaner Sponge Yellow.
What to do? how to make it soft and absorbent again before every cleaning use?
Thanks

Keep it in a zip lock bag. :)

Yes that's what I do too. Once you put it in water it will become soft again, and pouch that it comes with should keep it soft for a while... the zip-lock bag probably works even better.

Maybe I'm wrong but that's mentioned also in the product's description, that's normal.

But guys, won't fungus grow on the sponge if I keep it wet in an airtight zip lock bag?

Don't keep it wet, you use it, it gets dry, next time you get it wet again and so on. Don't use it dry.
