The Spongik hemp sponge is a zero plastic 3-in-1 dishwashing set. Its smart feature notifies users when it is time to replace the sponge, ensuring the bacteria does not reach the incubation stage in the sponge.
Spongik is an environmentally friendly and zero-waste alternative to conventional polyurethane kitchen sponges (which take 52 000 years to degrade) and plastic dishwashing liquid bottles. The Spongik set includes a versatile sponge dryer as well as cellulose and hemp sponges infused with chemical-free dishwashing soap.
The ergonomic water drop shape perfectly fits in hand, while the pointy edge is designed to clean hard-to-reach corners of glasses and bowls. The sponge tackles the toughest jobs, yet it is gentle enough not to scratch the dishes and the non-stick layer of the pans and pots.
The Spongik kitchen set is made of 100% biodegradable materials: cellulose, cotton, hemp, natural soap, diatomaceous earth.
When the wet sponge is placed on the Spongik dryer, the moisture and bacteria get pulled out from the sponge. Diatomaceous material attracts and binds bacteria, causing them to dry out and die. Quick elimination of moisture helps the dishwashing sponge to dry faster and reduce the breeding of the bacteria.
The Spongik kitchen set is now available to pre-order on Kickstarter.
