We are so excited about the upcoming Loofah Harvest!  Here is some helpful information about Loofah’s use and care.

What better to use on your natural body than all natural homemade soap applied with a homegrown all-natural Loofah?! This product is currently growing – we expect to harvest between August – October!

Use our Garden grown Loofah to apply soap and exfoliate your skin! Using natural Loofah helps to remove dead skin, leaving the skin beneath to look soft and vibrant.

Luffa is a genus of tropical and subtropical vines in the cucumber (Cucurbitaceae) family. Other common spellings are: Luffa, Luffah, Loofah.

In everyday non-technical usage, the luffa, also spelled loofah, usually means the fruit of the two species L. aegyptiaca and L. acutangula which are common in China and Vietnam. The fruit of these species is cultivated and eaten as a vegetable, or, when fully ripened, the fibrous fruit can serve as a scrubbing sponge. Luffa are not frost-hardy, and require 150 to 200 warm days to mature.

How to Disinfect & Clean your Loofah Sponge

Loofah should be kept dry to prevent the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria. After each use, it is best to let them completely dry. You can use one of the following methods below to occasionally disinfect the sponge:

A solution of ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide + ¼ cup of water. This will also re-bleach the sponge if it becomes discolored from use.

A solution of a few drops of Tea Tree Oil + a cup of warm water. Tea Tree oil is a very effective germicide and has been proven to inhibit up to 60 strains of bacteria, including S.Aureus. This will also eliminate any odor on your sponge.

A solution of 1Tbsp. apple cider or white vinegar + 1 cup of warm water.

A solution of 1 Tbsp. baking soda + one cup of warm water.

A solution of 1 Tsp. Colloidal Silver + 1 cup of warm water. There is no pathogenic organism known that is not killed by Colloidal Silver in 6 minutes or less.

Things NOT to do to a Loofah Sponge:

Do not use strong bleach on a natural sponge as it will weaken its structure and over time will cause it to deteriorate.

Do not microwave or dry in a clothes dryer. This will shrink & harden the sponge.
