A Wet Sponge is an item that can only be found within Ocean Monuments. As the name suggests, it is similar to the Dry Sponge block, except that it is saturated with water, and it emits water droplet Particles.


When a Dry Sponge comes into contact with Water, it will absorb Water blocks in all directions within a 7 block radius of the Sponge instantly. As soon as the Sponge absorbs any amount of water, it is converted into a Wet Sponge.

Heating a Wet Sponge in a Furnace will turn it into a Dry Sponge. Placing an empty Bucket in the Fuel Slot of the Furnace while smelting a Wet Sponge will fill the Bucket with the "evaporated" water, which yields approximately 1 Bucket for each Wet Sponge.


Elder Guardians within an Ocean Monument will drop a Wet Sponge, or a dry Sponge, when killed. There are multiple Elder Guardians per temple, and once all Elder Guardians are killed, it will be safe to reach a special room within the temple where the ceiling is covered by approximately 30 Wet Sponges.


  • Both Wet and Dry Sponges have the same breaking and placing sound effect as Grass.
