The Coffee Unsponge zero waste sponge is a reusable, sustainable, plastic free kitchen scrubber made from recycled fair trade coffee sacks.
Each sponge is handmade from the hardwearing fabric of a coffee sack that has reached the end of its journey. The tough jute top is stitched to a canvas liner and pure cotton back.
Around 60% of the Coffee Sponges feature a plain hessian top but the remaining 40% have part of the logo or insignia of the company who shipped the coffee. Some of these are colourful, some a stark black imprint, some are permanent over time and some wear away as you wash and use them. Which one will you get? You'll have to unbox it to see!
Caring for your Coffee Sponge
To keep your sponge fresh and ready for use always wring it out after use - it can hold up to 10X its own weight in water so it needs a good squeeze!
As your sponge is made from 100% natural materials you can wash it with your towels or freshen it in your regular wash - every 4-5 days will keep it in tip-top condition. You can also sterilise it with a quick blast in a microwave or run it through the dishwasher.
When your sponge reaches the end of its useful life - usually around four months - it can be cut up and composted or posted in a rag bank for recycling.
Size: Each sponge is approximately 12cm long x 7cm wide x 1cm deep.
