These vegetable scrubbing brushes are just great for root vegetables that have grown in the ground, letting you scourer the first out of their skins. They're completely plastic free, biodegradable and compostable, helping to replace toxic plastic mass-produced scrubs.
They're made from soft Egyptian loofah plant with cotton hanging loops. Compressed for transport, they swell up and become soft and flexible in water, meaning it fits neatly in your hand.
It's also the most ethical choice around, supporting traditional crops and skills. The farmers and production workers who work for LoofCo are treated fairly with wages and benefits higher than normal rates and no children are employed either.
This root vegetable scrubber has inspired by cleaning methods that have been tried, tested and proven over generations.
If you are just planning on washing up a handful of veg, you can do it under running water. If you are going to be doing a lot, set yourself a small sink of water. Dunk the veg you are going to be scrubbing in the water, and scrub all sides lightly. Press more heavily where needed to get rid of visible dirt. Then give a final rinse in clean water or under running water. This shouldn’t take any more than 15 to 30 seconds per veg.
