This Scrub-a-Dub is a sustainable alternative to a synthetic sponge. Organic cotton on one side, hessian on the other. Hessian is a tough and ‘scrubby’ material, perfect for washing up. The Scrub-a-Dub is filled with washed Welsh fleece, which gives it a ‘spongey’ feel. Wool is naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. It has been botanically dyed using black tea and iron water.

Compostable - when you feel a Scrub-a-Dub has come to the end of its life, just cut it up and add to your compost bin. The wool can be repurposed by pegging it up outside - birds will use it to create warm, soft areas in their nests.

The chemical-free dyeing process is labour intensive as each step takes time and patience; a quiet protest and sustainable alternative to the ‘fast, thoughtless and disposable’ way of producing items in modern society.

Wash using an eco friendly detergent, preferably below 30°C. Dry out of bright sunlight.

All packaging is plastic free - paper tape, recycled cardboard boxes, padding and corn starch. All of these materials are biodegradable. The corn starch bags are compostable.
