5 tips to good loofah care
1 Dry it daily.
Rinse your loofah very well after use. Shake it out thoroughly and hang it “in a cool place where it has the best chance of drying out.” That is why we have invented a functional packaging that allows you to hang your scrubber to dry.
2 Avoid using it for a few days after you shave.
“Bacteria can enter your skin through any sort of nick or cut, so you shouldn’t use your loofah for a couple of days after shaving your legs, prefer a wash cloth or a softer sponge like a natural Konjac."
3 Never use it on your face or in your genital area.
“Those parts of the body are sensitive to infection. You wouldn’t want to scrub them, anyway.”
4 Clean it weekly.
“No matter which loofah you are using, you should clean it at least once a week.” To do so, soak it in a diluted bleach solution for 5 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
5 Replace it regularly.
“If you have a natural loofah, you should replace it every three to four weeks. If you have one of the plastic ones, those can last for two months. Usually, but not always, if you notice any mold growing on your loofah, you should throw it away and get a new one. Or if it develops a mildewy or musty odor — those are signs you should get rid of your loofah.”
