Luffa or Loofah are a fruit and once dried, they are used as body sponges/exfoliant.
The pieces are firm at first, but once re-hydrated in water, they become soft.
They are completely natural so can be thrown into a worm farm or compost bin.
- If your luffa shows any signs of mold, discard.
- If using the luffa daily, it can be used for around 1 month, or longer if cleaned regulary (this can be done in diluted hydrogen peroxide solution)
