Loofahs are surprisingly versatile. We usually associate them with use in the bathroom for washing and exfoliating our skin. But they can also be eaten when they are small, and they can be used as a sustainable alternative to plastic scrubbing brushes. They can also be ‘blended’ and mixed into a facial scrub. Learning how to grow loofah will leave you with enough sponges to last you the rest of your life – and you can share them with friends and family too!
