These slices of loofah sponge are a neat and natural way to prolong the life of your handcrafted soap. The loofah is a vegetable-based sponge which when dried and sliced makes it a prefect place to rest your soap. Just set your soap on the loofah after bathing. Then when your bar of soap is gone you can use the loofah (now saturated with that great natural soap) to scrub up. The loofah works great on your feet!
