Loofah + Wood Pulp Scrubber Sponges


These sponges feel and function like traditional sponges but are completely plant-based, plastic-free and compostable.

The white part is spongy and absorbent, made of wood pulp, while the yellow-brown part is scrubby and helps soap become sudsy, made of loofah.

Care + Use: Upon receiving the sponge, soak it in water to watch it expand for a few minutes. If you'd like to sanitize the sponge, boil it in water for a few minutes, or microwave it in water with a touch of cleaning vinegar for a minute. Avoid flames, soaking the sponge in water long term (as it is a naturally degradable item, this will affect its integrity if left over night or for hours in water). Allow the sponge to fully dry between uses for longevity.

Disposal: Cut in small pieces, then place in the green bin to compost or directly compost in the backyard. Loofah can also be used like coconut fibre in the garden, excellent at water retention, growing seedlings, creating a potting mix, pest resistance, and use as bedding in worm bins
