These compostable sponge and scourers are great for doing the dishes, cleaning bathroom surfaces and kitchen countertops, as well as everyday spills.
They are durable, non-scratch and will last for months. They require less soap than a traditional sponge scourer and produce more suds for easier cleaning!
Most shop bought kitchen sponges are made from plastic and can’t be recycled or composted. They’re usually only used for a couple of weeks to clean the kitchen or wash up before they’re thrown away, where they’ll contribute to plastic pollution for hundreds of years before eventually breaking down into microplastics.
The compostable sponges are made from cellulose (a natural wood fibre) and the different scourers are made from 1 x sisal cactus fibre (for every day scouring) and 1 x loofah plant layers (for tougher scrubbing power). They are 100% biodegradable, plastic-free & non-toxic to the environment.
To help keep your cellulose sponge free of nasty bacteria, keep it as dry as possible between uses. You can sterilize them by soaking for a few minutes in boiled water, microwave heating damp sponges or pop in the dishwasher with a drying cycle.
