A medium pore honeycomb naturally occurring sea sponge from the Mediterranean Sea. Great for bathing or cleaning, they are both durable and gentle on skin.
Approx. 17cm diameter -please note there is variation in size and each piece is unique in form.
After use, the natural sponge should be rinsed with clear, lukewarm water and hung up or placed somewhere with drainage to dry. The natural sponge must not come into contact with boiling water. If the sponge is very dirty, it can be washed in a laundry bag on a wool program in the washing machine but without any washing powder.
