Loof Co Washing Up Brush
LoofCo Washing-Up Brushes are skilfully hand-made in Sri Lanka from coir coconut fibre. A recyclable alternative to plastic washing-up brushes.
Fitting neatly into the hand, it is strong enough for scrubbing pans and small enough to reach into cups. Effective for cleaning crockery, cutlery, pans and woks. Each durable brush will last for months and when worn out can be recycled.
Each brush measures 10cmx 7cm with a convenient metal hanging hook.
How to use:
Rinse thoroughly before first use. Immerse and use in warm water with washing-up liquid. To keep brush fresh between uses, rinse and squeeze out excess water and shake out any food particles. Hang to dry from the metal loop. The galvanised metal core will not rust. Occasionally soak in hot water with washing-up liquid and air dry to freshen brush.
About Loof Co and Natural Loofah:
Loof Co products are based on traditional designs that have been proven over generations and are highly effective for most washing and cleaning needs. When immersed in water, Loofahs transform and expand into a spongy, flexible yet robust pad. This makes them perfect for household cleaning, while also proving to be a soft, gentle skin exfoliator for your personal care routine. Coconut coir fibres remains stiff when wet, whilst also holding liquid, creating have excellent scrubbing power while remaining non-scratchy. Both plant fibres are durable enough to last for months!
It is LoofCo’s mission to offer an alternative to mass-produced plastic washing-up brushes, pads and shower puffs that will not biodegrade. Our farming practises are sustainable and at the highest environmental standards. Our products are sourced from Coconut and Loofah plants, both of which are renewable raw materials that absorb CO2 when growing. Furthermore, we use coconut fibres and husks that are left over from coconut food and oil production which would otherwise be wasted or burnt. This makes our products 100% Biodegradable and Recyclable: Loofah and coconut is biodegradable and can be composted. The brush metal core and cardboard packaging is recyclable.
LoofCo products are inspired by cleaning methods that have been tried and tested over generations. Using this knowledge, they are skilfully created in Sri Lanka and Egypt. This has helped to empower local farmers and production workers who are treated fairly with wages and benefits, such as medical insurance, higher than normal rates.
Our Farmers create equal opportunities by ensuring that a percentage of their workforce are made up of those with disabilities, and stand firmly against child employment.
In Addition, all LoofCo Products are Vegan. Some coconut producers use monkeys to aid with their harvest. LoofCo coconuts are not harvested in this way and are registered with the Vegan Society.
