Our 100% biodegradable and compostable Loofah Dish Sponges replace traditional foam and plastic sponges for dish washing and household cleaning. Made from loofah plants. The double layer loofah sponge is stiffer than the single layer but still softens in water. It has a cotton loop for hanging to dry.
How to use for dish washing: Wet and rub the loofah sponge on azero waste dish block®or pump liquid dish soap to lather up dishes. Softens in water to create a nice bubbly foam just like an ordinary sponge, but without the plastic waste.
Longevity: Best to rinse clean and squeeze dry after each use, then place it in a dry spot where it can drain. If you leave it damp it will grow bacteria and mold, since it's made from natural plant fiber. We recommend replacing it every month.
Notes:You can sanitize the sponge by soaking in boiling water for 2 minutes or microwaving the damp sponge on high for 1 minute. Sanitizing and cleaning your sponge can help extend its life.
Multi-use: Can also be used as a natural scrubber for your body or for household cleaning!
