What's inside it?
This starter kit contains: 1 pack of 4 sponge scourers, 1 pack of natural cloths, 1 pair of natural rubber gloves (size Medium or Large), 1 pack of 3 copper scourers and 1 pack of 2 pop up sponges. What's more, you'll also save a little more than if you bought the items seperately.
What's it for?
Everyone cleans in their own way - and it's important to do what works best for you! However, we've found that the pop-up can be used for bathroom surfaces, the scourer for the limescaley bits and then the cloths for any dry surfaces or mirrors.The copper scourers are perfect for stubborn stains. We love hearing the creative ways of using our products, so please share if you've found any great cleaning hacks!
What is cellulose?
Cellulose is basically biodegradable plant fibre, in our case it's made from trees. Obviously we need to do this process the right way, so ALL of our suppliers and material comes from either FSC or PEFC managed forests. This way, we know that the materials are sustainable, and the people involved in the process are not exploited. Everyone's a winner!
How can I keep my cloth clean?
The cloth is completely washable, we have heard testimonies of some cloths lasting 18+ months! Ideally, we recommend machine washing, the occasional disinfectant, and to try and dry between uses. This little cloth packs a punch, so it should stand up to whatever you throw at it (within reason!) - if there are any products you find that don't work with it, please let us know and we'll do what we can to make things right!
What is the sponge scourer made from?
The sponge scourer is our hero product. On one side it has a soft cellulose base, perfect for absorbing and cleaning. The other side is made of loofah scourer, which has a bit of scratchiness - designed to help get rid of limescale and more stubborn stains. The scourer is suitable for non-stick pans. With using natural ingredients being used on both sides, there can be a little variance with the thickness and shape, but rest assured - it will still pack the same punch!
How to get rid of the gloves?
Hopefully the gloves will serve you well, but when it's time to say goodbye it's great to know that they are 100% biodegradable - even in the general waste stream! We recommend cutting them up (this speeds up the process) and putting them in the general waste bin, where they will break down even quicker. Alternativley if you have access to a compost bin, this would work too.
How does the pop-up sponge work?
Once the sponge is made, it goes through a process of heating and compression so that it becomes paper-thin. As soon as water is reintroduced, it goes right back to the size it was!
