I don't write many reviews but have been meaning to write this one for a while. I love these little scrubbers! What's amazing is I really didn't expect to as I've tried a gazillion variations of scrubbers, mostly plastic sadly, over the years. Usually they smell after a bit and I throw them in the laundry or nuke them and hope for the best, then they smell again within a few days but NOT THESE! They never smell! I rinse them w/a little soapy water and they're good to go. The loofah even cleans up nicely and scrubs well! I can't believe it. Thank goodness for the occasional small wonder!
These are the only dish scrubbies I use. They last and work better than the wasteful ones you buy at the store. I use this in conjunction with Etees dish brush.
love these sponges and i would recommend them but quality is very inconsistent which cost them a star. i bought 6 so far and 2 i had to throw away because they stunk too much even after washing them twice in the dishwasher; 1 was super thin and dis not last long and 1 was super thick; 2 were just right. dinged them another star because for the price they don’t last long. if they were $3 each i would add back one star. just bought another 6 though because i really like them.

YOUR DISH SCRUBBIE | OUR PLANET
Ditch that plastic yellow & green scrub & sponge at last! Our 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 even 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 & CARE
Use your new etee 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, just like your old plastic sponge would!
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 garbage, compost or bury it the garden. Loofie will decompose within a month :).
Loofies have a layer of loofah plant paired with a layer of cellulose cloth, which are 100% natural and made of wood & cotton cellulose.
"I love how it's made of 100% natural materials for something we use on a daily basis and something closest to our mouth. I was always grossed out by thinking the bits and pieces of the sponge coming into my body, and you know the stuff is known for the home of thousands of germs. The 'loofah' side is great to scrape off food etc from the dishes, forks and knives without scratching them." Ikuko N
