Looking for more eco-friendly, plastic-free swaps for everyday items?
Small Square Natural Loofah Exfoliating Bath Sponge is a natural cleansing sponge, made up of the fibrous skeleton of the loofah plant, and it can replace the traditional plastic shower puff or body polisher.
Natural loofahs create gentle friction, making them perfect for helping along the process of shedding dead skin cells and increasing localized blood flow (improving circulation), effectively tackling dull-looking skin. Simply soak them in water to soften, and lather up with your favorite soap bar!
Increase the lifespan of your loofah by air drying between washes…hang it up on the handy cotton string! It can also be machine washed, if needed, then left to air dry. You can even occasionally soak your loofah in warm water with a few drops of peppermint essential oil – not only will it smell great, but the oil also has antimicrobial properties that help to deter bacterial growth.
When the loofah reaches the end of its life, you can safely compost it, or dispose of it in the knowledge that it will biodegrade (and not sit in a landfill for decades like so many plastic shower puffs).
LOOFAH CARE INSTRUCTION:
- We recommend letting the loofah dry out completely after each use.
- Clean the loofah weekly by soaking it in either a diluted bleach solution OR a diluted vinegar solution for 5 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
- Or you can put it in your dishwasher. These loofahs last several months, they do not deteriorate easily. However, in general, it’s recommended to change them out every month or so.
