Wet Sponge is a block that appears whenever a Sponge is exposed to water. It will destroy the water (source blocks only) in a 5x5 square, centered on itself.

A room full of 15-30 Sponge generates normally in Ocean Monuments; this will promptly become Wet Sponge and drain nearby water.

Each Elder Guardian also drops 1 Wet Sponge, along with its Raw Fish, Prismarine Shards and Prismarine Crystals. However, this is not an efficient method of farming Wet Sponge, as the minibosses only spawn 3 times per monument and are difficult to kill.


Wet Sponge can be put in a Furnace to "dry" it out and turn it back into usable Sponge. This is crucial to keep its effectiveness.


  • Wet Sponge appears to "sweat" droplets of water.
