About Us

Calendar Sponge was conceptualized, designed and patented following a family conversation about household germs.  Wendy Lovato President/CEO had first learned of the health risks posed by dirty kitchen sponges while watching an Oprah segment, “Is Your House Making You Sick?”  She was so struck by what she saw that she was compelled to conduct additional research; she quickly learned that dirty kitchen sponges are the #1 source of household germs.  Wendy discussed the findings with her brother, and co-inventor, Patrick Taylor and they decided to commence further research.  Upon learning that experts recommend replacing kitchen sponges every 30 days, Wendy and Patrick were struck with the idea to invent Calendar Sponge!

Before learning about the health risks posed by dirty kitchen sponges, Wendy and Patrick had no idea that sponges needed to be sanitized between use and replaced every month.  After surveying family, friends and colleagues…they found we weren’t alone.

When was the last time you replaced your kitchen sponges?  Do you even know?  Since most people either don’t know how long they’ve been using their sponges or don’t realize their dirty kitchen sponges are the #1 source of household germs, they have no idea that when kitchen sponges are used for more than 30 days, they become contaminated and pose serious health risks such as spreading E. coli, salmonella and other dangerous bacteria.
