Before using the sponge for the first time, wash with lots of water. Rinse before use and then gently massage until the sponge has absorbed the water. When the sponge is hard, soak in warm water for 3-5 minutes.
Use the sponge with or without soap. Use the sponge in circular motions
Rinse the sponge after use (do not wring). The sponge will harden when dry; re-hydrate in warm water before using again
After using the sponge, hang it up. If damage or worn (lasts 2-3 months) please add to compost.
