Heavy Duty Squeeze™ sponge
Squeeze sponges are plastic free alternatives to disposable dish sponges – ideal for eco-friendly cleaning or a zero waste home – they also make great house warming gifts for green-conscious friends!
This brand new and updated heavy duty sponge is made with a linen blend top for added scrubbing power and a strong canvas underlay for extra durability when you're tackling those tough pots and pans. The centre is our new sponge-like cellulose core which brings a whole host of new features that we think you'll love:
- Quick drying
And still 100% plant based, compostable and handmade.
How long will a Heavy Duty UnSponge last?
With regular dish soap and cleaners the average life is 4 months, with bleaches and heavy chemicals up to 3 months.
Caring for you Heavy Duty Squeeze sponge
To keep your sponge fresh and ready for use always wring it out after use - it can hold up to 10X its own weight in water so it needs a good squeeze!
As your sponge is made from 100% natural materials you can wash it with your towels or freshen it in your regular wash - every 4-5 days will keep it in tip-top condition. You can also sterilise it with a quick blast in a microwave or run it through the dishwasher.
When your sponge reaches the end of its useful life - usually around four months - it can be cut up and composted or posted in a rag bank for recycling.
Size: Each sponge is approximately 12cm x 7cm.
