A slice of natural loofah. 12cm to 16cm wide section across the middle of the loofah gourd. 8cm high. Average size 13cm x 8cm. When immersed in water, the washing up pad swells to become a circular spongy flexible pad, soft enough for non-stick pans, supple enough to fit into mugs. Fits neatly in the hand. Use in warm water with washing up liquid.
Handmade in Egypt. From the gourd of Luffa Aegyptiaca plant with Egyptian cotton string hanging loop. Care. To keep loofah fresh between uses, rinse, 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. Last for months and when worn out can be composted.
