This washing up cleaning pad is 100% biodegradable and compostable alternative to plastic washing-up sponges. They fit neatly into the hand & when immersed in water swell up to become a soft, spongy and flexible pad. 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.

All LoofCo products are made with sustainably-sourced plant fibres from the loofah plant - hence the name! These products are made using traditional methods passed down through generations and hand-crafted by skilled workers in Sri Lanka and Egypt who are able to work in an inclusive environment whilst being paid fairly and receiving medical benefits. LoofCo is a strictly Vegan company and uses only human workers, meaning that the company is registered with the Vegan Society. All elements of LoofCo's products are either recyclable or compostable, from the natural fibres, to the packaging.

This Loofah has been flattened for transport to save space. When immersed in water it will swell up and become a spongy, soft pad. Rinse thoroughly before first use. Use with warm water and cleaning product. After use, shake out any food particles, rinse, squeeze out excess water and hang out dry from the cotton loop.

Dimensions: (l) 10.5 x (w) 9.5 cm

Loofah plants are grown and harvested in Egypt by skilled farmers. The plants are similar to cucumbers and grow rapidly on vines, and are then peeled, deseeded and dried, then cut and processed - all by hand. This generations-old tradition creates a product that is perfect for cleaning household goods due to its robust nature, whilst also being spongy and gentle enough to be used on skin during a self-care routine. These plants are durable and can last for months, unlike many products made of disposable plastic and foam.
