Washing Up Loofah Sponge

by Loofco

LoofCo washing-up pads are expertly hand-made in Egypt at the loofah factory. A 100% biodegradable alternative to plastic sponges. The pad sands when the sponge is dry. It is soft enough for non-stick pans and is flexible enough to fit in cups. The pad lasts for months and can be composted when worn. Each pad has a handy cotton hanging loop. Flattened for transport to save space.


The Loofah plant is a vigorously growing plant that is from the cucumber family and rich in sustainable fibers and yet soft and flexible. When the fruit is ripe, the inside of the loofah fruit develops a network of fibers that are perfect for cleaning and exfoliating when they are dried. These loofahs are harvested, peeled, seeds removed and then dried, cut into lengths, and processed by hand in Egypt. This method of processing is a natural tradition that has been passed on through many generations


When dry, our washing-up pads will feel quite abrasive and stiff however once the loofah is soaked in water it will expand and become soft, especially good for non-stick pans.

After each use squeezes out any excess water then shake out any food particles and then hang to dry.

You can even wash your loofah in the washing machine occasionally or by hand. Soak in baking soda to freshen up and give a good thoroughly clean, make sure to rinse well before reusing.

AI love it :)

Enormous sponge

It's definitely loafy and doing the job. It's actually so big that I've cut it in two to keep it stored without filling the whole worktop :-)

Nothing negative to say about this!

I can only find plus sides to the product to be honest! Gross bits are way easier to wash out then out of a plastic sponge and it doesn’t smell if you rinse and dry it with every use.

Quality product, hygienic and cheep

This is not only plastic free and compostable but it cleans better and easier! I'll never use a plastic washing-up pad again. It's also more hygienic since it has a little cord that allows you to hang it so that it can dry properly. It saves you money since it last longer than a plastic made pad.
Great product. Thanks for this!


It works perfectly, it does the job. Good product!
