This plastic-free Loofie Scrubber (affectionately known as 'Loofie') is a combination of the gentle scrubbing power of the fibrous loofah plant and the spongy cellulose-cotton cellulose dishcloth. They're sewn together using cotton thread (rather than the all too commonly used polyester thread) which makes for reusable & biodegradable dish cleaning with absolutely no plastic.
Use your new Loofie Scrubber in the same way you'd use your old green & blue plastic sponge (but without the plastic!). The loofah side is an amazing scrubber - but it won't scratch your dishes! The cellulose side is good for wiping up messy dishes and cleaning more delicate dishes. Loofies can do more than clean dishes - try using one to help scrub the sink & tub!
Care / End of Life
- To keep your Loofie clean you can chuck a damp one into the microwave for 10 seconds, or lay it onto the top rack of your dishwasher for a cycle. Washing machines or clothes dryers are not recommended.
- Change your Loofie every 3 to 5 weeks, depending on usage. When you're done with it, since it's fully biodegradable, you can chuck it in the compost or bury it in the garden. Loofie will decompose within a month :).
Materials Loofies have a layer of loofah plant paired with a layer of cellulose cloth, which are 100% natural and made of wood & cotton cellulose.
