"There is a sponge to wash the plates."
Translation:Il y a une éponge pour laver les assiettes.
Thanks! In an exercise in this same lesson they had a chat question where someone asked if they could use some sponge to wash the dishes, and the answer was that the sponge "sert à nettoyer les toilettes", so I guessed it would be the same for this question; it wasn't ☹️. Thanks for taking the time to answer!
