For the size of the sponge the measurement is made along the length of sponge.
First, to extend the life of your natural sponge, soak it for 15 minutes – every few weeks – in 1 cup of lukewarm water plus 1 tablespoon of baking soda, then rinse it and let it dry (preferably hang it in a drying bag) and it will be ready to use. The baking soda will rejuvenate its cellular structure, naturally clean it thoroughly and will greatly increase the durability of your sponge!!!
If you are using it as a tampon just repeat the above process with more frequency, every day or every other day.
NEVER use bleach on a natural sponge as it will weaken the structure over time. Also do not use a microwave or clothes dryer. This will shrink and harden your sponge. Finally never use hot water on your sponge , because you may damage it!!!
Generally you should know that before each use your sponges need to be left under lukewarm water to soften and get their final shape (size) .This is due to the fact that natural sponges are harder when dry and become very soft-soft-swollen when wet as they are highly absorbent!
