This plastic free scrap fabric unsponge is handmade and compostable. It’s made from 100% cotton fabric left over from other makes (fabric design varies at random depending on what fabric we have been using). Backed with repurposed burlap from coffee bean bags (sourced from coffee shops). The scrap fabric unsponge is filled with 2 layers of cotton terry.
The scrap fabric unsponge is thinner than a conventional sponge. However we find they are great at fitting around the edges of a glass and into corners.
Robust, with a soft side and a great scrubby side. If you are lucky you might find printing on your scrubby side, showing the burlap’s former life as a coffee bean sack!
When they are dirty – pop them in the washing machine at 40 or lower and hang to dry. When they are used up, cut them small. Remove the polyester thread. Then add them to the compost.
