Coir Kitchen Sponges are made from coconut husks and cotton plants. They’re much more eco-friendly than plastic sponges since they go through a less toxic manufacturing process and degrade in landfills. Other materials include cotton fibers, sodium sulfate crystals, and softeners. These sponges are soft when you first receive them because they are treated with a soap that keeps them pliable. This treatment also keeps bacteria from growing inside the package before purchase. Rinse your sponges thoroughly before you first use them.
The coir viscose mix (brown scouring pad) is made from coconut husk fibers and rayon. This mix produces a tough and abrasive material that can deal with heavy duty scrubbing such as the removal of grease and baked-on foods.
Our kitchen sponges are plastic-free and odor-free. They don’t collect funky odors and bacteria like plastic sponges and synthetic cloths.
No more glues or industrial adhesives. Every sponge is made and sewn with the least chemicals, no plastic and are REACH compliant, an EU "Safety Test" standard.
We are a packaging-free company. We use packaging only for logistical requirements. The sponges are packed together with a jute rope. Cut and tie the jute rope to our brand tag as a hanging option (see photos).
All our sponges (including the scouring portion and the jute rope) are 100% biodegradable; it's the most eco-friendly cleaning option and has no poly-anything!
Hygiene specialists recommend that you replace your sponges every 1 to 2 months. If you keep it clean, you can reuse a cellulose sponge for up to 6 months. Although with frequent care and rougher use, your sponge may only last about a month. To make them last, rinse sponges thoroughly after each use. Allow them to dry completely open to the air or you may sun them as well. Alternatively, you may soak the sponge in a mixture of one part bleach to nine parts water for two minutes. Wring it out, then air dry. Another way is to soak the sponge in full-strength vinegar for five minutes, then rinse and air dry. Our sponges are dishwasher-friendly, so you can also run sponges through a cycle in the dishwasher on the top rack.
