As they ripen they develope fibres and then they are peeled to reveal the usable part. Loofahs are perfect for cleaning the surface of muddy root vegetables. They soften in water and quickly remove soil without harming the vegetable. Loofahs are durable and will last for months, but at the end of their life will biodegrade completely in the compost. After use, rinse clean, squeeze out excess moisture and hang to dry from its string loop- its airy natural structure will dry out quickly.
