Looking for an alternative to the plastic kitchen sponge or plastic bath loofah? Look no further than our natural Loofah Scrubbers.
Our heirloom loofah are sourced from family farms in Guatemala. Grown using traditional methods, these loofah are free of all pesticides and herbicides, and are completely unprocessed. After testing a variety of loofah from many different countries, our team fell in love with this beautiful and durable South American loofah variety.
Each loofah comes compressed and flattened. Loofah will expand when wet.
Kitchen: Apply dish soap to loofah and use to wash dishes. Change loofah every 3 to 5 weeks depending on usage.
Bath (exfoliation): Apply body soap to loofah and use to exfoliate skin.
Bath (cleaning): Apply cleaning agent to loofah and use to clean sinks, tiles, and tubs.
End of life:
Our loofah are 100% plant fiber and completely compostable. To discard: compost or simply bury in your garden. Loofah will decompose within 30 days. The paper label can be recycled or composted. Read more about disposing natural loofahs.
Loofah vs. Sea Sponges:
1. Plant vs. Animal: Loofah is a plant that is actually eaten as a vegetable in many parts of the world. When it dries, is becomes usable as a loofah scrubber. Sea Sponges are living multicellular organisms that, when harvested from the sea and dried, are useable sponges.
2. Exfoliation: Sea sponges have the feel of a soft foam bath sponge – there is little to no exfoliation of the skin when using a sea sponge because it is almost completely non-abrasive. Comparatively, loofah is naturally coarse, making it far superior for those looking for skin exfoliation.
3. Multipurpose vs. Single Purpose: Because loofah can be used as a scrubber, it is much more versatile in terms of the ways it can be used around the house. Loofah can be used to clean kitchen dishes, scrub tile, or as bath scrubbers.
