These washable and reusable shower 'unsponges' are a great alternative to disposable plastic sponges/shower pouffs. They can be used in exactly the same way but, when needed, simply pop in with your laundry instead of throwing them away, helping to reduce waste and our impact on the environment.
Simply use as you would a normal sponge, rinse through with water and then hang up to dry when finished. When you're ready to wash, simply pop in your washing machine with a normal load of washing (in similar colours) at 40 degrees celsius using non-biological washing powder. Air dry your sponges for best results.
- Handy Tip - Kapok stuffing can become a little lumpy after washing, but can be reshaped easily when wet. Whilst we do not recommend regularly tumble drying your sponge, a quick few minutes agitation in the dryer can work well to soften the stuffing every now and then.

After the birth of her first son, Helen became totally overwhelmed by the amount of waste she was generating as a new mum and decided to explore the world of eco-friendly reusables. She'd always loved sewing, so decided to make her own wipes and make up pads - and Sparrow Road Handmade was born from there.
