How to get a sponge in Minecraft?
If you are in survival mode there are 2 main ways to get it.

To get a sponge in Survival mode, you can gather wet sponges that grow naturally in the Ocean Monument (also called Guardian Temple). Here we will explain how:

Game control for digging up the wet sponge depends on the Minecraft version:

The wet sponge breaks and a smaller sponge will float on the floor. Be sure to pick up the damp sponge before it disappears.
- 2.Find and kill an old guardian
You can add a wet sponge to your inventory in Survival mode by killing an elderly guardian.
Elder Guardians will appear at the Ocean Monument in the Deep Ocean.
