Swedish Scouring Pad Loofah

$13.00

Scouring pad made of 100% loofah by Iris Hantverk of Sweden since 1870. This plant is related to cucumber and zucchini. The Loofah is organically and sustainably cultivated in Spain. No spraying is used and irrigation is done using natural rain and recycled thermal water. During manufacture, no chemicals are used, but only 43-degree thermal water softens the fibre.

When the scouring pad is soaked, it becomes softer and larger. It works on all surfaces and it does not scratch or destroy any material. It is ideal for use as a kitchen scouring pad or general scouring pad. The scoring pad lasts about 4-6 months depending on the use.

Clean the scouring pad by placing it in boiling water with mild washing-up liquid. Rinse it and let it air dry, use the handle. If it changes colour or becomes too soft, it is time to put it on the compost.
