What a fun alternative to synthetic scrubbing pads! Even better, these natural scrubbers also have the distinction of being the first loofah in the world to be certified USDA organic. If you're not sure what a loofah is, it's a vegetable that looks similar to a gourd that when dried has a sponge-like consistency. Safe for veggies, non-stick pans, and tough enough for pots and pans. Made in Paraquay.
