These compostable sponges come as a pack of 2 and are a fantastic alternative to conventional synthetic sponges. They are made of 100% cellulose from natural wood fibre so can be popped into your compost bin at home once you have finished with them! Each sponge comes with a scouring side: the yellow sponge has a scouring side made from sisal cactus which is for lighter, everyday scrubbing, and the white sponge has a loofah plant scourer for heavy duty scrubbing. Both are completely non-scratch.
These sponges are:
- Made from natural wood fibre
- Long lasting
- Cruelty Free
- Plastic Free
- BPA Free
- Made in UK
Each sponge can absorb and retain up to 10 times its own weight in water and can withstand many a cleaning job, be it washing the dishes or wiping down kitchen and bathroom surfaces! They require less soap than other more traditional sponges, and produce more suds for a superior clean while helping your products to last for longer. For some amazing cleaning products to use them with check these out, or if washing up is what you're after then you can choose from our Washing Up Liquid or our Dish Washing Soap Bar for the perfect pairing!
These sponges are made from wood pulp that's been derived from the redundant wood harvested for other purposes at a managed plantation in Germany. They will break down in much the same way as a twig, so in around 3 months in a well-maintained compost heap. These sponges will last you for several months depending on how often or how vigorously they’re used and how well they are looked after.
Size of each sponge: 110 (L) x 70 (W) x 20 (H) mm
How to look after your sponges and prolong their life:
- Keep as dry as possible between uses to prevent bacteria from growing.
- Sterilise every now and again. To do this, simply soak in boiling water for a few minutes OR pop the damp sponge into the microwave OR put in the dishwasher with a dry cycle.
