No, it’s not food, so don’t try to eat it. Actually, it is food, but in a recycled sense, so you could try to eat it but it probably wouldn’t do any favors for your tastebuds. They’re kitchen scrubber cloths; they’ll clean up messy dishes without detergent and I’m assuming they’re friendlier to the environment than the plastic alternative. (Let’s be honest here, how many of you would try the taste just out of curiosity? Hmm? What if I gave you $5? Maybe then?)
The natural abrasives in these scrubbing cloths make for a resiliant kitchen utility. No detergent is needed for use, though a tiny dab of soap can be applied for the greasiest of dishes. The scrubbing cloth can be used for several months, gets curlier and softer with use and resists odor and bacteria.
The yellow coarse scrub is made from recycled corn cobs while the red gentle scrub is made from peach pits.
