LoofCo Root Vegetable Scrubbers are skilfully hand-made in Egypt from loofah plant. A must-have for cleaning muddy vegetables that will not splash dirty water around the sink. The Root Vegetable Scrubber fits neatly into the hand and when its immersed in water swells up to become a soft, spongy and flexible pad. Long lasting yet biodegradable and when worn out can be composted. Each Scrubber has a convenient cotton hanging string. Flattened for transport to save space.
