Loofah - ecofriendly dishwashing sponge

DIY Loofah

Making your own sustainable sponges is easy enough, if you can find a loofah gourd. Most Turkish and North African specialty shops sell them. If you have a garden you can grow and dry the loofah yourself.

Once you have the dried loofah in your possession, simply cut it into pieces and clean out any dirt. Your eco-friendly sponge is now ready to use!
