It’s been a long growing season here in Portugal and our four loofa (or luffa or loofah) plants have produced a bountiful crop. But we’ve had a lot of bad weather and they’re starting to rot.
Some say that Loofa sponges work best when they are left to dry out naturally on the plant. But apparently the can be artificially dried in an oven so the skin can be removed and the sponges left to finish drying indoors. In the name of experimentation (and a satisfying shower back-scratching experience) we’re going to put these theories to the test.
