This compostable sponge is durable. It’s safe to use on non-stick cookware, copper and stainless steel, glassware, delicate surfaces and much more. Also, it is non-scratch. These eco-friendly sponges have all the cleaning power of conventional sponges but without the plastic waste. They’re perfect for all your tough cleaning jobs.
This natural cellulose sponge creates generous foams and lather. It is powerful enough to cut through greases and grime. At the same time, our sponge provides gentle agitation that won’t scratch your fine china and glasses. These eco sponges are the perfect alternative to traditional plastic sponges that end up in the landfill.
Compostable Sponge Features
- 100% compostable and biodegradable sponges: these pop-up compostable sponges are made from 100% biodegradable plant-based cellulose (wood pulp) that are safe for your home and our planet. At their end of life, simply toss them in your home compost bin.
- quick-drying: vegetable cellulose fiber is naturally durable and breathable, allowing the sponge to air dry quickly without collecting nasty smells.
- multi-purpose: these compostable kitchen sponges will meet your daily needs. You can use them to wash dishes and utensils, to scrub bathroom surfaces, or also to clean your kitchen countertops, sinks and kitchen appliances.
Traditional sponges are often made with synthetic materials like polyester and polyurethane. Microplastics can be released when using these mass-produced synthetic sponges. That’s why choosing compostable dish sponges made with natural materials, instead of common kitchen sponges, are the best eco-friendly alternatives.
After first use, the ink from these zero waste kitchen sponges will fade.
You can boil these natural sponges in hot water to kill nasty bacteria. Remove excess water, and air dry sponges completely between use, if possible. You can use these reusable sponges for as long as you would a conventional dish sponge.
