Nice.

A couple of things,

  1. please format your pasted code as per the instructions at the top of the page.
  2. Does adding a little surfactant (a drop of dish soap in water), then drying, aid in re-wetting of the sponge?

1 - Sorry! My first post!
2 - Maybe you are right, it can probally save a number of seconds!
I myself have used a brand new one. They usually have pretty good absorbency
