These are an amazing plant-based alternative to your standard plastic washing up sponges and scourers that will last for months without shedding any microplastics into the environment. These washing up loofahs are super hardy and completely non-scratch, scrubbing clean the toughest of stains without causing any damage to your pots or pans. These could even be used for cleaning your kitchen sink, bath or shower or even your body - the list is endless!
Upon arrival the loofah will be completely flat, but after soaking in warm water for a short time it will puff up into a cute but robust sponge. To keep the loofah fresh between uses, rinse and squeeze out excess water and hang dry from the cotton string loop.
Loofah's are the fibrous flesh of the mature Luffa Gourd, a member of the cucumber family. Once the fruit has completely ripened on the vine, it can be picked and the skin peeled off to reveal the fibrous skeleton beneath. This is thoroughly washed out and then dried completely before being ready to use! Once your loofah has reached the end of it's life you can simply pop it in your compost bin for a truly zero waste item. We love it!
