5 SEA SPONGES, Large 5-7" Natural & Sustainably Harvested, Two Wild Hares

$33.00


This listing is for a bulk order of 5 large 5-7" sea sponges. You can use these whole for bathing or cut them in pieces for embedding in soaps like the pictures above. Since they are natural, they vary in texture and appearance.

Our sea sponges are a natural product sustainably harvested and cleaned for bathing and so much better than the plastic & petroleum artificial sponges most people are used to. These sponges are naturally antibacterial without chemicals added. Since this is a natural product, size, shape & color varies.

These are lovely to use on your skin. Suds absolutely pour from the holes and they make your soap last so much longer because you need very little and the sponge does the rest sudsing it up for you. They make the most luxurious bathing experience! They also make great decorations for your bathroom or beach themed decor.

Small 3-5" ones are listed in our shop as well as 2-3" facial silk sponges and giant decorative vase sponges, sponge soaps, loofahs & more. Check it out!

To Use For Bathing: Just wet the sponge to soften it, wipe soap on it or add your body wash to it, squeeze and it will lather your soap like nobody’s business. When you’re finished, just rinse it in fresh water and squeeze it out and let it rest in a dry spot. A properly cared for sponge will last years.

To Embed in Soap:
Dampen sponge in warm water to soften. I always smell the sponges individually when they damp and any that smell too oceany I wash with soap before using or quickly run them through my clothes washer to freshen them.

After rinsing, squeeze out excess water and use kitchen shears to cut them. We get 6-8 cuts per sponge for our sponge soaps. (Your number may be more or less depending on how big you want your cuts and how big your mold is.) Pour soap at a light trace, plunge sponge cut in and wiggle to release air and adhere the soap well to the sponge. Soap at a cool temp to avoid damaging the sponge.

*No finished product pictured comes with this listing. They are examples only.

If USPS is at fault for the damage of your package, $100 is the maximum they will refund to you unless insurance was paid for.
