These sponges are soft, absorbent, and gentle enough to use on nonstick pans. Once wet, they will shrink a bit. When you’re finished, simply toss in the compost. Made with sustainably sourced wool.
Wool Sponges (2 Pack)
Designed primarily to be used in the kitchen, these plastic-free sheep’s wool sponges can also be used on bathroom countertops or on the skin. Delicate enough to use on glass and fine china without scratching, but sturdy enough to scrub stubborn grit off cast iron pans.
These make a fantastic and sustainable alternative to synthetic dish sponges and even natural sea sponges, as wool is both more abundant and easily harvested. Wool is also naturally antimicrobial and antifungal, and as such will not easily harbor bacteria or develop an odor. Depending on the amount of usage, these sponges can last for years (though it’s recommended to replace them every 3-6 months if used heavily), and then at the end of their life are fully compostable.
Care instructions: Rinse with warm water, squeeze out, and lay flat to dry. Putting these out in the sun for a bit every once in a while will naturally sanitize them.
