Luffa (or loofah) gourds are grown in tropical and subtropical climates. After the plant blooms, the flower develops into a long, gourdlike plant that resembles a giant cucumber or zucchini.Once they're completely dry, they can be sliced and be used as sponges – either you use them for showering, doing the dishes or both! Being entirely plant-based, luffas are perfectly fine to compost when they start wearing out.
Wet the luffa to soften it, apply soap on it and then scrub your dishes or you skin gently. Make sure to rinse it well and let it dry completely between uses.
Sanitize the loofah once a week by either putting it in the washing machine, dishwasher, or have it boil for several minutes.
