These versatile, plant-based, biodegradable and fully compostable, non-scratch scrub pads are perfect for those hard to remove items. They will not damage cookware and are naturally antibacterial and odorless. Best used for scrubbing tough messes on pots, pans, cast iron, and enamel. The scrub pad will eventually shed coconut fibers over time. This is natural and it is safe to wash the fibers down the drain or compost them. Remove soap residue by rinsing and squeezing the pad dry and dispose by composting.
