Natural Sea Sponge 4-5″ Hard Type ideal for Face Cleaning and Baby Bathing
For many reasons, a natural sea sponge is much better than a synthetic sponge. Because of the resistant to abrasion, sea sponges last longer than synthetic sponges and they are more durable. Natural sea sponges soak up and hold more water without dripping.
That makes them perfect for bathing and cleaning. Natural sponges are self-cleaning through their intricate system of canals. Therefore sea sponges wash out more quickly & easily & will not retain objectionable odors. They clean better, they are softer and will not peel like synthetic sponges while being used.
Our sea sponges grow in the Aegean sea (in Greece, Kalimnos) where the cold deep waters create dense strong sponges. They are the most absorbent and durable sponges available and they create a rich lather for luxurious bath time.
Note: Every single sea sponge has its own unique shape, but the dimensions are the same. That’s why some sea sponges may be slightly different from the photos

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SEA SPONGE
Before using your sea sponge, you’ll want to squeeze it under warm water to soften. Sea sponges are stiff when dry, but become very soft when wet.
To extend the life of your sponge:
Soak a cleaning or bathing sea sponge for 15 minutes every few weeks in 1 cup of warm water and 1 Tablespoon of baking soda (increase solution accordingly for large sponges).
Allow sponges to dry completely after each use.
Never place a sea sponge in boiling water, microwave, or dryer. This will harden your sponge. Never use strong bleach. This will weaken your sponge. Squeeze but do not twist or pull your sponge.
If a sponge starts to become ragged, use scissors to trim off the loose pieces rather than pulling them off. Trimming the sponge to keep it smooth will enable you to get more use out of it.
