We all know what loofahs are, but do you really know what they are? Loofahs, also known as luffas or loofas, are the dried out flesh of an overly mature Luffa gourd – which is a vegetable!
Rest your soap on this cushion so the soap can dry; the loofah is like a drainage. Water and soap will seep to the bottom, where you can use it to clean your sink!
Place soap on top and it will absorb excess moisture allowing the soap to dry out properly without cracking or going soggy.
Loofahs are like a little Swiss army knife when it comes to natural cleaning. We all know that they can be used as a body sponge and exfoliator but there are a few other excellent uses for it: dish washing, stain scrubber, and of course, soap cushion!
All the Redecker products we carry are plastic-free, and crafted only from natural materials.
Before first use, soak the loofah to allow it to expand to its natural size and shape, then dry naturally by air drying. Once it expands it really does look like a little "cushion". Can be sanitized in boiling water. Periodically check the cushion for mould or mildew; it's a natural product and bacteria can grow in it. Compostable in municipal or backyard compost.
