This is the mother of all kitchen sponges. Here's why: 100% compostable at end of life, the terry cloth exterior prevents the natural plant based sponge inside from deteriorating and the sponge inside holds the suds longer. The natural scrubbing elements: choice of horse hair (has more scrubbing power, see blue sponge) or the knit jute (lighter and softer, see last page.)
Do they last? Yes, generally for months (depending on use)! I clean mine often and recommend that you do as well. It can be washed with the laundry or microwaved, soaked in vinegar or washed in the dishwasher. I prefer to launder (washer and dryer) a few times per week as we are heavy users. And now for the very best part: No microplastics leech into the water. This is a great add to your plastic free, healthy living, home.
I can't keep these in stock... They sell quickly and I'm always cycling through (up cycled) fabrics. Send your color preference and we will do our best to get you a fun color of your choice. Sometimes we have plain terrycloth and other times a print. If we have a print we will ship that, otherwise it will be plain unless you message a preference.
