A sponge can be obtained by drying a wet sponge in a furnace. Sponges can be mined using any tool, or without a tool.
A sponge can be used to turn water into air (it "absorbs" the water). To place a sponge, use a sponge item while pointing at a surface facing the space the sponge should occupy.
A wet sponge can be dried in a furnace, making the sponge reusable. If a bucket is in the fuel slot at the time the sponge completes it's drying, either because the player places it there or because the fuel slot had contained a bucket of lava, the water will drain into the bucket, leaving a bucket of water in the fuel slot.
