Scrub away with this biodegradable, plastic free alternative to a washcloth and dish sponge. Their scrubby texture make these lil’ gourds great for hard-to-clean dishes, as well as for exfoliating and stimulating blood flow in the shower!
Luffas are members of the gourd family, and grow on vines (contrary to the popular belief that they come from the sea!). Fun fact: before WW2, luffas were the most commonly used kitchen sponge!
How To Use: For use as a dish scrub (safe on nonstick pots and pans!), wet the luffa with warm water, soap and scrub away. To use on your body, wet the luffa with warm water, add your favorite soap, and exfoliate! We recommend that you cut your luffa in half to make it last even longer.
Materials: 100% Luffa! These luffas are made from the dried luffa plant and are completely unprocessed. For the sake of the environment, they are not bleached to look perfectly white and may have variations in color and may still have a seed or two
Care: Rinse your luffa after each use with clean, hot water, wring it out completely, and place in an area with good circulation so it can dry. Soap dishes or standing it up straight works! You also can attach a piece of fabric inside the luffa to hang it! Drying your luffa out before each use prevents any bacteria from forming, and ensures it lasts as long as possible!
You can also pop your luffa in the microwave for 15 seconds to sanitize it, or soak them in vinegar.
End Life: If taken care of properly, your luffa can last up to 6 months! Once your luffa has reached its end of life, cut it up and toss into your compost pile or bury it in your garden!
More Reasons Why We Love Them: The Luffa Farm is nestled in the small town of Nipomo, California and the owner of the farm has been growing luffas naturally for over 30 years! If you love luffas as much as we do, you might even consider a tour of their luffa farm!!
