This special loofah sponge is shaped like a cat and decorated as a "grumpy" cat. The sponges are manufactured by craftsmen in India who process, dye, sew and finish the product by hand. A natural vegetable dye is used to decorate the sponge. The sponge is gentle enough to clean fruits and vegetables, tough enough for stubborn post and pans. The non-scratch natural fibers are safe to use of wood, glass, porcelain, china, stainless steel, copper, microwave ovens and non-stick surfaces. To clean, rinse, squeeze and hang to air dry.
