LoofCo Washing Up Pad
A Washing Up Pad made of natural loofah plant, plastic-free and vegan.
A 100% biodegradable alternative to plastic washing-up sponges. When immersed in water swells up to become a soft, spongy and flexible pad. It’s soft enough for non-stick pans and supple enough to fit into mugs. Each durable pad will last for months and when worn out can be composted. Each pad has a convenient cotton hanging string. Flattened for transport to save space.
They are gentle enough not to damage your cookware but abrasive enough to give a good scrub.
How to use: Use in warm water with washing up liquid, like a washing up sponge. Soak and remove baked on food first. 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.
The Loofah plant creates amazing fruits that once dried and skinned reveal this perfect plastic sponge alternative! As Loofah grows from a plant it is biodegrable and when it reaches the end of it's life can be composted.
Ditch the plastic
Every time you wash your dishes with those gaudy yellow and green sponges small microplastics float off and wash down your sink into the water system. So wash consciously and stop another bacteria covered plastic sponge ending up on landfill.
It's the circle of life - Loofahs grow from the ground and will decompose back into the earth, returning it's nutrients -there's no better swap!
