Just busted out my new sponge earlier this week! I've used loofah sponges before, so I knew what to expect.
These ones, however, are thicker than previous ones, which is fine. Assuming this means they will last longer!
What I do like about these ones in particular is that there was thought put into them: one side is softer, and the other is the rougher/tougher part of the loofah, so it imitates a plastic sponge.
If you are new to these, know that I switched to them because I wanted to use less plastic, but I needed a sponge my partner liked. And he likes these! They work just as well as a plastic sponge, AND they work on everything - regular plates, my one nonstick pan, cast iron, you name it. They are an easy swap, and I double-love that I found them on Hippie Haven, so I do not need to use other online sources.
These are great sponges! I'm switching to plastic-free products and these are sponges are wonderful! I had bought loofah "sponges" from a different website and those were just a loofah cut in half which were very difficult to use to wash dishes. These are the same size and shape as traditional sponges and do a great job. I'm super happy with this purchase and plan to continue buying them.
Is my first time buying this sponges and I in love the other one stink with the time but this one no and is soft with the hands And live everything clean
I really like this product. I got them to replace traditional kitchen sponges that often contain plastics, anti-fungal chemicals, and other undesirable ingredients. They seem to be durable and work great at getting off grime and other hard-to-remove stains. I use these for cleaning around the house as well as for doing my dishes. These are a bit smaller than conventional kitchen sponges but still get the job done.
These loofahs are sewn into the perfect size and shape to be an ideal alternative to conventional sponges for anyone who likes to use those for cleaning. They would really make a great gift for a friend or family member who uses conventional sponges, and who may not be used to all-natural products, and might not find this on their own. Every part of these sponges is home compostable; even the minimal paper label band is glued to itself with what seems to be starch rather than plastic tape or plasticy glue! I am really excited that this sponge exists! I have washed many sinkloads of dishes with one (it comes in a pack of 3), and have run it through the dishwasher each day, then dried it in the UV disinfecting powers of the sun, and it's held up beautifully. The texture is just right to scrub off old food, but soft and comfortable in my hand.
