The Wash Up Box makes switching to eco-friendly washing up easy. It all the washing up brushes and cloths you need around the kitchen. This box set also makes a great zero-waste, vegan gift for an eco-conscious household.
The box set contains:
- Reusable dish brush with a refillable head
- Biodegradable brush head replacement
- Natural loofah scrub
- Set of 2 biodegradable sponge cloths
The stylish wash-up brush has a replaceable brush head which is made of natural FSC beech wood and Tampico bristles. Tampico is also known as Mexican fibre. It is natural plant fibre which comes from the lechuguilla plant or agave cactus. The fibres have a soft texture, great elasticity and are resistant to high temperatures, acids and caustic soda. Tampico also has great water-retaining properties, is stronger than commonly used nylon or horsehair, keeps its shape, is non-scratch, and completely biodegradable.
The petrol-coloured handle is made of silicon and stainless steel, making it comfortable and long-lasting. Silicone comes from naturally occurring sand and minerals but it is a synthetic, processed material and preferable to polypropylene or plastic. TerraCycle recycles silicone if you ever want to get rid of your washing-up brush handle. The brush head is fully compostable.
To replace the brush head slide the silicone part of the handle down to release the head.
The all natural loofah scrub has a string attached to hang it up to dry. The loofah sponge is a naturally hard and abrasive scourer to use for harder to clean pots and pans. It cleans well without scratching and is easy to rinse and long lasting. It is 100% biodegradable.
The biodegradable sponge cloths are 100% natural, vegan, and plastic-free. They are made with 70% cellulose and 30% cotton, water-based inks, and are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. They are very absorbent, durable and reusable and can be put in your compost bin after use.
The cloths can be washed at 30-60 C, they are dishwasher or washing machine safe, and do not emit micro-plastic pollution. To use the sponge cloth you only have to wet it and squeeze it. You can also use it with our kitchen and glass spray cleaners. Rinse the cloth after use.
