With regular dish soap and cleaners the average life is 4 months, with bleaches and heavy chemicals up to 3 months.
To keep your sponge fresh and ready for use always wring it out after use – it can hold up to 10X its own weight in water so it needs a good squeeze!
As your sponge is made from 100% natural materials you can wash it with your towels or freshen it in your regular wash – every 4-5 days will keep it in tip-top condition. You can also sterilise it with a quick blast in a microwave or run it through the dishwasher.
When your sponge reaches the end of its useful life it can be cut up and composted or posted in a rag bank for recycling.
Each sponge is approximately 12cm x 7cm.
