Caption: Kitchen spone microbes. Kitchen sponges can accumulate food and microbes when used for long periods of time and are not thoroughly cleaned.

Features shown in this photomicrograph are: sponge surface (green bacteria (rod-shaped - light purple and blue colors filamentous fungi (thin and thick filaments - pink and dark purple colors yeast fungi (round spheres - yellow color).
