Review - Scrubbies Unsponges

This is my 8th review on plastic alternatives. I hope these help to give you some ideas on plastic reduction or alternatives.

Scoring system: 

❤ = Will keep, I love it / 👀 = Not sure, will try some more / 😐 = Oh dear, it's not for me

Review Eight - Scrubbies 'Unsponges'!
What a lovely name - Scrubbies! But what is it? 

Scrubbies also known as an 'unsponge' is a natural biodegradeable cloth as an aid to cleaning your dishes without the use of plastic coated scouring pads. They have a fabric animal design on the front with hessian backing, so you can choose either side for cleaning. 

Made from 100% Organic Cotton, with Anti bacterial Bamboo lining and Hessian backing. Wash at 40C. Compostable and Biodegradeable.

They are pricey BUT the real good news is you get a pack of 2. They are very cute, made in the UK and washable as well, so as well as being plastic free they should last a long time.

Maybe a Stocking filler for Christmas perhaps? 

I bought my scrubbies from a lovely eco-living company called Floral Fox. They donate a tree with every order (you can add extra tree donations too to aid the Eden Project) and they will send your order in a recycled box with a lovely card, which is a nice addition. 

It's lovely to support a British company and their produce is made in the UK too, such as a plastic free deodorant made in the Isle of Wight. They also make soaps which I have bought, as I'm trying to move away now from buying body washes in plastic bottles now.

The photo below is just one of the designs (foxes - quite apt as it came from Floral Fox!) Also whales, turtles and all sorts of other animals are available so you can choose your fave.

My Verdict?

The cute design, washability and bio-degradeable material makes it a huge win for me ❤!
