The 100% biodegradable and compostable Eco-Sponges replace soft plastic sponges at the sink for dishwashing.
These. Are. Cool. These sponges ship to you IKEA-style. What does that mean? FLAT-PACKED. When we first received these sponges we thought “some sponges these are”. But then just like those AMAZING GROWING FISH I used to beg my parents for at the dollar store, these suckers expand to be real sponges! They also do work (unlike those AMAZING GROWING FISH). They have just enough texture to get those stubborn food particles off of your pots, pans and plates but are still soft enough that you can use them on your non-stick pans without worry. Our favorite part though is that they are made from natural plant fibers so there are no microplastics ending up in the ocean as they break down!
Rub Eco-Sponge on the DISH BLOCK® or pump liquid dish soap on the Eco-Sponge and lather up dishes as usual. It will create a nice bubbly foam just like an ordinary sponge, but without creating microplastics that wash down the drain.
Pair with: The Pot Scrubber for stuck-on foods.
Longevity: For best longevity, rinse clean and squeeze dry after using, then place it in a dry spot where it can drain. If you leave it damp it will grow bacteria and mold, since it's made from natural plant fiber. We recommend replacing it every month with a fresh one. Comes with a pack of 3-5.
Notes: If you use a heavy amount of grease when cooking, you might replace more often, or wash it with soap several times to dislodge stuck grease. You can sanitize the sponge by microwaving the damp sponge for 20 seconds or dipping in boiling water. Sanitizing and cleaning your sponge can help extend the life of it.
End of life: Once you're ready to replace your sponge, compost the old one, or bury it in the garden. It is completely biodegradable, made of natural plant fiber, and doesn't contain any plastics or synthetics.
Multipurpose: Take one of the sponges and use it exclusively for the body, it makes a great exfoliating body sponge.
Bundle: Includes one bundle of 3 sponges, enough for around 3-4 months of dishwashing.
