Kitchen Cleaning With Loofahs

I've discovered a wonderful way to clean your dishes, sink, pots and pans. It's a loofa! Also spelled loufa, loufah, etc. I grow my own, which is easy to do, but they can also be purchased on the internet, ebay and some "natural" stores. I find a piece about 5 inches long works great. After use just throw them into the dishwasher to have them cleaned and sterilized!

I've been trying to find a source for luffa seeds, does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can purchase them online? Thanks! I'd love to use them for cleaning and to include as gifts with my homemade products :)

I never even thought about where loofah's came from :-o This is cool and I am going to order some seeds right now! Here's a link for where to buy the seeds :-)

And an excellent article on how to grow and harvest them including photos (two pages) :-)

We better get snapping if we're going to grow them this year cause it's planting season ;-)

I buy <a href="http://www.naturalbathandbodyshop.c ... e-raw.html">loofah</a> all the time from the Natural Bath and Body Shop. Usually there are 10-20 seeds in each raw loofah I buy. Hope this helps.
