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.

Available in two beautiful fabrics, these sponges are handmade by Sparrow Road Handmade with 100% cotton fabric backed with a super soft bamboo terry towelling material and are stuffed with kapok. Kapok is a natural fibre from the kapok tree which is safe, soft, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, clean and chemical free - making it one of the most sustainable fibres available!

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.
Each environmentally friendly sponge is approximately 9 x 12cm cm and has a a handy strap to allow you to hang it up to dry after each use. When it comes to the end of it's life, simply cut into smaller pieces and pop it in your compost bin to biodegrade.

We're very proud to be stocking these beautiful items by Sparrow Road Handmade.

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.
