Sea Sponge & Loofah Care
How to Disinfect & Clean your Sea Sponge
Sea Sponges contain a natural enzyme that inhibits, but does not prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. After each use, it is best to let them completely dry. You can use one of the following methods below to occasionally disinfect the sponge:
A solution of ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide and ¼ cup of water. This will also re-bleach the sponge if it becomes discolored from use.
A solution of a few drops of Tea Tree Oil in a cup of warm water. Tea Tree oil is a very effective germicide and has been proven to inhibit up to 60 strains of bacteria, including S.Aureus. This will also eliminate any odor on your sponge.
A solution of 1Tbsp. apple cider or white vinegar in 1 cup of warm water.
A solution of 1 Tbsp. baking soda in one cup of warm water.
A solution of 1 Tsp. Colloidal Silver to 1 cup of warm water. There is no pathogenic organism known that is not killed by Colloidal Silver in 6 minutes or less.
Things NOT to do to a Sea Sponge:
Do not use strong bleach on a natural sponge as it will weaken its structure and over time will cause it to deteriorate.
Do not microwave or dry in a clothes dryer. This will shrink & harden the sponge.
