ABSTRACT The purpose of this experiment was to determine the antimicrobial effectiveness of copper in the aqueous conditions of a damp sponge and to compare copper’s antimicrobial effectiveness to that of common sponge materials currently on the market, including untreated-cellulose, odor-resistant, and triclosan-treated sponges. If copper sponges could replace triclosan-treated sponges, this could limit the […]
