    hey all, just for fun my family planted loofa this year, and my mother just harvested the first five...

    does anyone know how to prepare these for use as shower sponges?

    Thanks!

    Hi Ram,
    The fruits should be placed in a warm dry placeuntil the skin dries out and turns brown. Once this happens if you give it a gentle squeeze the skin will crack and you can carefully peel it of the fibrous loofa. I then soaked mine in a disinfectant solution for a few hours to make sure that they wont go mouldy!
