These washable sponges are the perfect plastic-free alternatives to disposable dish sponges. Add a little fun to your daily household chores with these bold and graphic prints. After use, simply throw them in the washing machine or dishwasher and reuse.
Made from two layers of hessian and 100% cotton terry toweling topped with 95% cotton 5% lycra in a fun print. These unsponges are “stuffed” with terry toweling offcuts so are perfect for gentle, no scratch scrubbing and are made using a number of scraps and offcuts from clothing making. The hessian for the scrubbing surface is upcycled from donated coffee bags from Trá Coffee Roasters and the print, as with all mily designs reusables, is an offcut left from cutting clothing orders.
