Reviews of LoofCo Washing-Up Pad 4.4 out of 5 (41 reviews)

works really well and is a good size
Expands to a nice big soft ball of loofah sponge. More pleasing than expected!
Once wetted this pad puffs up to a huge loofer slice. Completely impractical for washing up dishes and it's far too big to easier store near the sink
Good product
Really good washing up thing! It has enough scrub to clean tea stains from mugs and remove some dried on stuff, with a bit of soaking I’ve not needed anything more abrasive, a good size too and long lasting. Rinse and hang with the loop after use and it feels nice and clean and smells fresh, I love it!
It is so eco-friendly
Works very well not going back to the synthetic versions.
I have been looking for a natural product that matches a sponge scrubber. This works like a sponge, but is ‘scrubby’ enough to get sticky bits off. Seems to be hard wearing and doesn’t get smelly. Will be ordering more.
My new favourite thing to use when I wash up. ** really, but using my LoofCo makes me smile while I wash up!
Strong and very serviceable washing up pad - without using plastic or steel based products - ideal for washing up and for protecting the water environment.
Good for scrubbing pots and pans, and getting into tea stains in mugs. Larger than expected but easily squashed down into even smaller items
Used daily for washing up. Softens well with water and so more flexible for getting into mugs than some other products. Good quality - seems to be lasting well.
Good product
Loved this. What a great idea.
Much *** than first thought..great for scrubbing!
Used one of these Loofahs before! Great product and lasts a long time!
Good biodegradable option to a sponge scourer for non-stick pans and general dishwashing. Recommend for regular dishwashing. Quality seems good, haven't used for long enough to know how long it will last.
Softens easily, gets the pots clean with very little effort and much more hygienic than a sponge
These are great, very effective and with a quick refresh in the dishwasher last for ages.
It’s an efficient sponge but I only wash up a few items that can’t go in the dishwasher and this isn’t really suitable for that as it needs to be thoroughly soaked before it’s any use. Make sure you remove any food particles before it dries or they end up trapped in the structure.
We have decided to stay away from supermarket sponges made of plastic this is a very good alternative.
As good as a plastic sponge
used for washing up. lovely item
I really wanted to like this product but unfortunately it's much to rough, even after giving it a good long soak. It badly scratched non-stick pans after just a few uses though it is advertised as suitable for those.
I like the idea of this product, and it does mould well to washing up various items. I just wonder about how hygienic it would be if used for up to 4 months.
Although this doesn't necessarily 'scour' as well as scourers made from fossil fuel derivatives, it cleans most things well. I use these pads because they look better - and they can be composted and break down within months rather than generations.
I like this but use it in the shower instead! It leaves my skin very soft
Does the job well!
Won't be buying sponges again!
I use this for plates cups and cutlery and it's very efficient.
Where have I been all my life without this to wash up. Highly recommended.
Use product to wash up with. Would recommend to friends. Quality good.
Brilliant product - wish I'd discovered it years ago. Better than any plastic non-stick washing up pad I've ever used and will last for ages. Really flexible and goes in the washing machine. Fab!
So happy I took a chance on this! Lovely to use and seems to be robust so far. No need for the rope/string but doesn't bother me. Makes me smile to be using a natural product at the sink! Hate to think of all the plastic sponges going into the trash when there is a biodegradable alternative
I had to cut in half as way too big but works fine and now I have a spare one
Excellent product
Works OK, but quite big, and you need to have hook or something near sink to hang it to dry
