Textured Kitchen Sponge (Hemp)

Textured Kitchen Sponge (Hemp)

{This listing is for 2 pcs of the updated new design. Should you prefer the older design (double-layered, 1pc), you can go ahead & add this to cart then email or DM me. As long as I have enough yarn left, I will be happy to make the older design for you!}

 

This hemp sponge is a natural, sustainable alternative to traditional plastic-based sponges.  It is handmade by me using undyed hemp yarn and in a design that allows it to dry faster in tropical climates. Not only does it not contain any hidden micro-plastics or chemicals, it is also reusable and biodegradable. Safe for cleaning pots & pans as it is for more delicate dining ware.

 

Most traditional kitchen sponges are made from plastics or petroleum-based products which are usually soaked in chemicals (such as Triclosan, classified as a pesticide) to repel bacteria or odours. These are not only harmful to our health, but will shed micro-plastics into our water systems every time we wash our dishes with them. They are also meant to be disposed of frequently - thus contributing to landfill footprint as they are non-biodegradable.

 

[Materials]

Undyed hemp yarn. Hemp is a highly sustainable, low-impact crop that grows well without the use of pesticides or chemical herbicides. Hemp yarn is naturally anti-bacterial, resistant to mold and is biodegradable. 

 

[Dimensions]

10cm x 11cm; shrinkage expected on first use.

 

[How to Use]

Rinse very well after use and hang dry between washes. Machine washable. Alternatively, allow to dry naturally in fresh air & sunshine.
