I am so excited to be stocking these! This is a great alternative to plastic washing up pads! These loofahs are hand made from layers of natural loofah plants, each pad will last for months with normal use and when worn out can be composted. A 100% biodegradable alternative to plastic washing-up sponges. When immersed in water swells up to become a soft, spongy and flexible pad. It’s soft enough for non-stick pans and supple enough to fit into mugs. Each durable pad will last for months and when worn out can be composted. Each pad has a convenient cotton hanging string. Flattened for transport to save space. When immersed in water will swell up and become a spongy, flexible yet robust pad that will not scratch Measuring 10cm x 10cm approx. As it is made of a natural loofah plant the sizes can differ slightly. Has a convenient cotton string loop.
