How To Use:
When dry, the cleaning pad will feel quite course and stiff however once the loofah is soaked in water it will expand and become spongey, flexible but robust.
After each use squeeze out any excess water and then hang to dry.
You can even wash your loofah in the washing machine occasionally or by hand. Soak in baking soda to freshen up and give it a good thorough clean, make sure to rinse well before reusing.
The packaging of Loofco products is made from card and is recyclable.
There is a small clear sticker holding the packaging together, this is biodegradable and made from cellulose.
Our natural cleaning pad will last you ages but when the time finally comes to replace it you can simply pop it is your compost, it will naturally biodegrade!

What Is Loofah
The loofah plant is a fast growing vine native to Egypt, belonging to the cucumber family (not a sea organism what many people think), the loofah fruit is quite similar to a cucumber but much bigger. The inside of this fruit develops strong fibres which great for cleaning, exfoliating and scrubbing with!
LoofCo loofahs are a particular species called Luffa Aegyptiaca which fruit develops fibres that are strong and durable yet soft. These loofahs are carefully harvested, peeled, deseeded then dried. Once fully dried they are then cut and processed by hand, this is a local tradition that has been passed down through generations to create 100% natural cleaning accessories!
Why Choose Natural
Many modern sponges, dish brushes and cloths are made using synthetic and plastic fibres which are so bad for the planet! These same materials release microplastics and chemicals down the drain when being used and when they start to degrade once disposed of. Wherever these microplastics end up can cause serious harm to wildlife and our selves, contaminating water and our food.
You can easily reduce microplastics in your household by choosing natural and biodegradable materials such as cleaning accessories made from plants like loofah and coconut husk! These are so much more sustainable and will not release anything harmful into the environment. Not only are these materials non toxic, they are also effective…loofah and coconut husk has been used for generations as natural sponges and brushes!
Choosing natural can make a whole lot of difference when trying to reduce plastic and chemicals in your life, not only is it eco-friendly it is far healthier for you!
