Marah macrocarpa seed pods

The dried seed pod skeletons of Marah macrocarpa make great dish sponges and face loofas. I have been using these exclusively for a year now. Durable, sustainable, and free. Try them and if you like them, spread the word. Save the planet, save money!

This is a dried seed pod with the spiky skin still attached.

Simply soak this in water for a 1/2 hour and then gently peel off the spiky layer, which will become soft. What remains will look like this.
