A Sponge before 1.8.

The Sponge is an aesthetic block available only in Creative Mode in Minecraft and through inventory editing. When placed, it will destroy all water blocks in a 5x5x5 area, but this feature was removed. Later, in Update 1.8, sponges regained this abillity, and when they soaked up water, they became Wet Sponges.This was handy for underwater bases and preventing griefing via filling with water.



  • Sponges are often used as money on servers with an economy due to the fact they are otherwise useless.
