Root Vegetable Scrubber
The LoofCo Root Vegetable Scrubbers are hand-made in Egypt from the gourd of native Luffa Aegyptiaca plant with an Egyptian cotton string hanging loop. Made from a 11.5cm tapered slice from thin end of loofah gourd, we use the thinner end of a loofah as it is more aerated and particularly suited to this task. Approximately 6-8cm x 8-11cm, natural variations in size may occur.
To Use: May appear abrasive when dry but when immersed in water, it swells slightly to become a soft spongy and flexible pad. Fits neatly in the hand. A must-have for cleaning muddy vegetables. Use with water on wet skin of root vegetables with gentle pressure to lift off soil and debris. To keep loofah fresh between uses, rinse, squeeze out excess water, shake out any food particles and hang to dry from the cotton string loop. Occasionally wash in the washing machine or by hand. Last for months and when worn out can be composted.
