Maistic BIO KITCHEN SCRUBBER
– the new plastic free and resuable sponge
Plastic free, bio-based and reusable.
Only a few drops of soap is needed for your environmentally friendly dishwashing.
Now you can say goodbye to polluting plastic scourers forever. And hello to eco-friendly cleaning.
MAISTIC Bio Kitchen Scrubber is efficient for all types of more rough cleaning – in kitchen and bathroom, indoors and outdoors and for all kinds of surfaces that you want to clean.
You might already know sponges made from wood-based cellulose. The great, soft sponges are bio-based, plastic free, they do not crumble and it is washable. So use it again and again. The scourer part and the sponge part are sewed, not glued, together.
The scourer part of the Maistic Bio Kitchen Scrubber is made from the loofah plant. The cucumber-like loofah fruit is dried and smaller parts are sewed to the white cellulose sponge.
If you need to scrub your porcelain or polish metal, we recommend Maistic Hemp No Scratch Scrubber.
All Maistic sponges are washable in the dishwasher. Put it in the tray for glasses. Dry sponges standing up. Then the sponge is ready to be used again. Alternatively use boiling water with a little clear vinegar. Do not put Maistic Bio Kitchen Scrubber in the washing machine. Do not tumble dry, as this will reduce the product lifetime.

Why you should never use disposable plastic sponges
The colored disposable sponges with the green scourer part are serious plastic polluters.
You actually see the problem when you use it. The scourer breaks into tiny green pieces, microplastics, disappearing in the drain, continuing to a wastewater treatment plant. Some of the microplastics end up in the sea, never to disappear…
If you use plastic sponges for cleaning flower pots, windows etc. outdoors, microplastics end up in nature and your own garden.
Not only cleaning sponges, but also cloths and most of our other cleaning supplies contain or are made of plastic.
At the moment, there is no official mark that can provide you with knowledge and guaranties of plastic content in cleaning supplies. Maistic is of course fighting for this. E.g. the Danish mark ‘Svanemærket’ does not mean that products are plastic-free.
As manufactorers our responsibility is global. We create jobs, reduce CO2 and increase the general knowlegde about the environment. We only name products with compostable certification if they really are compostable. Then the documentation is in place.
The bio plastic industry is in rapid developement these years. New raw materials with new assets get accessible all the time. Because MAISTIC has a large number of collaborators our possibilies are nearly endless.

It takes thousands of years for traditional petro based plastic to degrade and it can contain chemical substances that are damaging for nature, animals and you.
All products from MAISTIC® are certified compostable and are free of chemicals such as phthalates, bisphenoles and heavy metals. That is why it makes good sense to use MAISTIC for wrapping up food instead of plastic - to you at home, at restaurants and in the food industry. It looks like plastic - but it is MAISTIC
