Hand made in Egypt. 13cm x 8cm loofah in packaging with cotton string loop. Flattened for transport to save space.
May appear abrasive in dry state, but when immersed in water swells up to become a soft, spongy and flexible pad ( see image). Fits neatly in the hand. Use in warm water with washing-up liquid, like a washing-up sponge. Soft enough for non-stick pans, supple enough to fit into mugs.
Soak & remove baked-on food first.
To keep loofah fresh between uses, squeeze out excess water, shake out any food particles & hang to dry from the cotton string loop.
Occasionally wash in the washing machine or by hand if desired.
Will last for months and at the end of its natural life can be composted.
