Our Orange Pop-up Sponge, inspired by our popular Eucalyptus Swedish Dish Cloth, is another great zero waste swap for your kitchen. Made of 100% vegetable cellulose (wood pulp), these kitchen sponges feel and function like traditional sponges but are completely plant-based, plastic-free and compostable.
Why are cellulose sponges better than plastic ones?
1. Kitchen sponges are exposed to hundreds of different types of bacteria and experts recommend changing them once a week, which is problematic because plastic kitchen sponges take thousands of years to break down. It's recommended to use cellulose sponges which can be sanitized/disinfected in hot water (not recommended for plastic sponges).
2. Traditional sponges can shed microplastics which can make their way into our water cycle and end up in our rivers, oceans and drinking water.
Dry: 11 x 10cm or 4.33 x 3.93in

════ Features ════
✅Durable: safe to use on non-stick cookware, copper and stainless steel, glassware and much more. Use it for chores like washing walls, cleaning bathtubs, and even washing your car!
✅Non-scratch: Natural cellulose sponge creates generous foams and lather, so it is powerful enough to cut through greases and grime. At the same time, our sponge provides gentle agitation that won’t scratch your fine china and glasses.
✅100% compostable and biodegradable: Our Pop-up Sponges are made from 100% biodegradable plant-based cellulose that are safe for your home and our planet.
✅Quick-drying: Vegetable cellulose fiber is naturally durable and breathable allowing the sponge to air dry quickly without collecting nasty smells.
✅Multi-purpose: These Pop-up kitchen Sponges will meet your daily needs from washing your dishes and utensils to cleaning your kitchen countertops and sinks.
