LoofCo Washing-Up Pads – 2 Pack
A LoofCo Washing - Up Pad is 100% biodegradable and can be composted. A perfect alternative to plastic washing-up sponges that continually release micro-plastics into our water and environment.
Loofahs are from the cucumber family and when harvested, they are washed, de-seeded and dried.
• LoofCo loofah products are grown and made in Egypt, supporting traditional loofah farmers.
• Farm hands and production workers are treated fairly, wages are higher than normal rates with medical insurance.
The Washing-Up Loofah Pad fits neatly into the hand and when the loofah pad is immersed in water, it will immediately swell and become a soft, spongy and flexible pad. Used as normal, in warm water with washing-up liquid; Loofah Washing - Up Pads are easy, efficient, not scratchy, and a pleasure to use. Loofah pads are soft enough for non-stick pans, and supple enough to fit into mugs.
Personally I find one Washing-Up Loofah Pad too big so I carefully cut mine into two pieces; leaving one half with the string loop (made from 100% Egyptian cotton) attached ....to hang from my kitchen tap, and the other half I use to clean the bathroom sink and bath.
A LoofCo Pad expands so much that after use, you just squeeze out the excess water and unlike other washing-up scourers it doesn't clog up. If it is necessary, just shake out any food particles before hanging to dry. You can now say goodbye to smelly kitchen scourers! A loofah pad soon dries and is always ready for use.
For after care: occasionally wash by hand, or for a deep clean; soak in oxygenated Bio Laundry bleach, and then just hang to dry, or soak for a few hours in white or apple cider vinegar - 1 part vinegar to two parts water.
LoofCo Washing-Up Pads are long lasting and will last for months with normal use. As a LoofCo Washing-Up Pad is 100% natural plant and cotton; at the end of its natural life just pop the loofah onto your compost heap or into your compost bin.
As loofahs are the fruit of a plant, size and colour may vary slightly.
