After the plant blooms, the flower develops into a long, gourdlike plant that resembles a giant cucumber or zucchini. The gourds are then harvested and can be left to dry out for up to six months. Dried gourds are soaked in water, peeled, and their seeds are removed. Once they’re completely dry, they can be sliced, cut, or shaped in a variety of ways before they’re sold as sponges.
How do I use my loofah sponge?
Loofah sponges from the luffaplant have historically been used as scrubbers. Benefits and uses of a loofah include:
- exfoliating the skin on body and face
- stimulating blood circulation while showering or bathing
Some people also swear by loofahs as household cleaning products. They can be used to scrub tiles, showers, sinks, and other hard-to-clean surfaces.
How do I clean my loofah sponge?
Instead of simply hanging it in your shower or on a bath hook, use a dry towel to thoroughly wring out moisture and get it dry. Put it in a cool, dry place outside of your bathroom when you’re finished.
You should also clean your loofah every week. By regularly cleaning your loofah with a diluted water mixture of 10 percent bleach may reduce your risk of bacterial contamination. Dip it in the mixture for 5 minutes. After cleaning, rinse it thoroughly with cool water and dry it out completely before putting it somewhere cooler to hang.
