    Here!

    Я хочу губка ванна.

    Я хочу принять ванну, дай мне губку!



    Do these senteces make sense grammatically?
    Call to a hardware store: "I'm sure you know more about the caulk than I do...tell me...is there a taste to the caulk?".

    The latter one is perfect, but the former makes no sense.
    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"

    Let's say you, Friendy, were put in a situation where you wanted a sponge bath. How would you demand this in Russian?

    I don't think there's a special expression for a sponge bath. So I think that "Я хочу принять ванну и мне нужна губка" will do.
    Or maybe even "принять душ" is better. I guess those who visit public bathes may give a better advice.

    I think it is called обтирание.
    Обтирания и обливания холодной водой полезны для здоровья.
