These sponges clean and last just as well as the plastic intensive alternatives. Definitely plan on sticking with them.
YOUR DISH SCRUBBIE | OUR PLANET
*Please note: Loofie's colors may vary between green and blue.
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
