Made from Loofah Plant.
Long lasting, durable and flexible.
Expands and softens in water, doesn't scratch surfaces.
• Hand made in Egypt.• Size: 13cm x 8cm loofah with cotton string loop. Flattened for transport to save space.• May appear abrasive in dry state, but when immersed in water swells up to become a soft, spongy and flexible pad.• Fits neatly in the hand. Use in warm water with washing-up liquid, like a washing-up sponge. Soft enough for non-stick pans, supple enough to fit into mugs.• Soak & remove baked-on food first or use a harder brush for those.• To keep loofah fresh between uses, squeeze out excess water, shake out any food particles & hang to dry from the cotton string loop. Occasionally wash in the washing machine or by hand if desired• Will last for months and at the end of its natural life can be composted.
What is a loofah?
• The loofah is a vegetable and is not a sea organism as many people think.• It is a vigorously growing vine from the same family as a cucumber. In fact, the loofah fruit looks like a large squash. Each vine produces between 5-25 fruits per crop.• When ripe, the inside of the loofah fruit develops a network of fibres that are perfect for cleaning and exfoliating purposes when dried.• LoofCo loofahs are grown in Egypt and our products are made from a variety that is rich in fibres, durable yet soft and flexible.• To get the best texture, the loofahs are carefully harvested, peeled, cleaned of seeds and dried. (Some seeds may be impossible to remove).• The dried loofahs are cut into lengths and processed by hand to create a long lasting, yet biodegradable plastic-free range of washing-up, cleaning and body products.
