I use these all the time instead of sponges, rags, or paper towels for wiping counters and surfaces. They don't smell, they stay sturdy, and they can be cleaned and sanitized to extend their life even further.
I love these for mopping up spills, drying dishes, and cleaning countertops. They seem much more sanitary than dish/cleaning rags and don't carry a musty smell.
This was my first attempt at a plastic free dish washing tool. It took a few tries to kind of soften the loofah a bit and figure out how to use it, but overall I'm satisfied with how it cleans my dishes. It's definitely different from a kitchen sponge - it won't be super useful for wiping off surfaces but it does have more scrubbing power in my opinion. And it still holds onto soap. I'll probably buy one of the wood handle dish scrubbers when my loofah starts falling apart, but I'll happily compost it when that day comes :)
Good quality loofah & feels great to exfoliate my body with
I use mine as a shower loofah and it exfoliates wonderfully! Highly recommend.
This works great for cleaning dishes. I didn't like it as much for the shower but I will definitely be buying again for the kitchen.
Let me count the ways that I love this sponge. I bought two, one for the shower and the other for dishes. It lathers up so well and is the perfect size. I prefer it more for the shower than dishes but it gets the job done.
For the shower, it’s a soft exfoliant and the holes in the middle are perfect for putting soap that is reaching its end.
For dishes, it’s really good but if you’re like me and tend to not rinse their dishes from time to time, then it tends to break down quicker. To extend its life, I use the wooden dish brush for stuck on food and finish with the sponge. Regardless, it gets my dishes way cleaner than my silicone sponge.
This has been a great brush to have in the sink. The bristles are nice and stiff, so it works really well -- even on things that aren't bottles!
The brush is long enough to reach the bottom of bottles and glasses, but is too flimsy to get enough leverage to scrub. The wire bends before the bristles do. It was not effective for its intended purpose.
I like to reuse old kombucha bottles for my DIY nut milks and other drinks at home, but I couldn't get them thoroughly cleaned with a regular dish brush. This thing gets through the narrow mouth (about an inch wide), and reaches all the way to the bottom! The curved end allows me to scrub the bottoms and sides of the inside of the bottle really well. The bristles are on the stiffer side, so it has good scrubbing power and I think it should last me a long time. I'm also just amazed that there's no plastic whatsoever and the whole thing can be composted & recycled (the wire). I had never found something like it before, so I'm stoked!
I bought this because the bottom of my water bottles were starting to look crusty, and this was unfortunately a purchase I ended up regretting. It smells awful and it doesn't work well as a bottle cleaner. I also tried to research on the company and it seems a bit sketchy... I could not find anything about how and by who these products were actually made by. I hope EcoCollective looks into this and finds a better bottle brush to supply.
