Most kitchen sponges are made of cellulose (natural fibres). However, the scrubby part is typically made of polyester or nylon.
These materials are neither recyclable nor biodegradable and are made from nonrenewables such as oil and gas. Those sponges have a huge carbon footprint, and will sit in your landfill for centuries. Instead of contributing 52 sponges to your landfill every year, or bathing your sponge in intoxicating amounts bleach, how can you keep your kitchen clean without adding to landfills or using toxic chemicals?
These loofah kitchen sponges are a cheerful addition to any home and are made of naturally grown and processed loofah. Pop them into the dishwasher with a load of dishes to keep them clean. If you choose a loofah to scrub the house, or yourself, you should give yourself a pat on the back!
Loofahs are considered an environmentally friendly choice. And they are biodegradable!
Once you’re done with your loofah, just toss it in your compost bin.
-Wet the loofah
-Buff dishes with the loofah
-Rinse the dishes with water
So what is a loofah? And what is it made from?
Loofahs are not sea sponges. They’re a vegetable that grows on vines in subtropical climates, such as India and Egypt. The loofah resembles a long pointy gourd or a cucumber and can grow to be quite large. When it’s ready for harvest the loofah is dried, peeled, and deseeded. Inside are the fibrous innards that we’d recognize as a loofah sponge.
Each sponge approximately is 8cmx10cm before they are being soaked in water.
