No Tox Life
Biodegradable Eco-Sponges - 5 Pack
100% biodegradable and compostable Loofah Eco-Sponges replace soft plastic sponges at the sink for dish washing.
How to use for dish washing: Rub Eco-Sponge on your Dish Block® or pump liquid dish soap on the Eco-Sponge and lather up dishes as usual. It will create a nice bubbly foam just like an ordinary sponge, but without creating micro plastics that wash down the drain.
Longevity: For best longevity, rinse clean and squeeze dry after using, then place it in a dry spot where it can drain. If you leave it damp it will grow bacteria and mould, since it's made from natural plant fibre. We recommend replacing it every month with a fresh one. Comes with a pack of 3.
Notes: If you use a heavy amount of animal grease when cooking, you might replace more often, or wash it with soap several times to dislodge stuck grease. You can sanitize the sponge by microwaving the damp sponge for 20 seconds, or dipping in boiling water. Sanitizing and cleaning your sponge can help extend the life of it.
End of life: Once you're ready to replace your sponge, compost the old one or bury it in the garden. It is completely biodegradable, made of natural loofah plant fibre and doesn't contain any plastics or synthetics.
Multipurpose: Take one of the sponges and use it exclusively for the body, it makes a great exfoliating body sponge.
Bundle: Includes one bundle of 3 sponges, enough for around 3-4 months of dish washing
I’ve been using one for about a month now and it’s holding up amazingly! It works just as well as a synthetic sponge without the carbon footprint.
The eco sponge works very well for dishwashing and removing difficult stuck-on food from dishware and pots & pans. Much better than other similar products which end up smelling awful. Love the idea of being able to put it in the compost at the end of its life.
