Natural dish-washing tool / 1.10 Kitchen

Natural dish-washing tool

The natural loofah can automatically adsorb the stains on the body surface with its capillary perforated structure during dish washing. Besides, there is a layer of cell wall to isolate the oil slick on the surface of the natural loofah to prevent the oil stain from adsorbing, which makes the natural loofah irreplaceable by the cellulose sponge. The application of the natural loofah in cleaning, as the new finding, symbolizes the recycling of the crops. Compared with the cellulose sponge, the natural loofah is degradable and thus more environment-friendly.
