    You can rinse it in old tank water or dechlorinated water. Rinsing it in tap water will kill the bacteria.

    Yeah as the guy above you said, rinse it in old tank water during a water change.
    And if there's multiple sponges don't replace all of them at once as its restart the cycle essentially
