How Often Should You Change  Your Shower Loofah?

Do you know what’s lurking in your loofah?  The scary truth is that if you have a natural loofah and it’s been awhile since you’ve replaced it, there are likely loads of bacteria and possibly even some mold hiding in there.  Especially scary if you’re using it after you shave when there may be small cuts and pores are more open.  

 

Experts agree that you should replace your natural loofah roughly every 3-4 weeks.  If you want to try and extend that time, there are a few things you can do. First, don’t leave it in a wet, moist environment.  Instead, dry it between uses in a less humid area like an open window. You can also disinfect natural loofahs by soaking them in bleach once a week.  

 

The plastic loofah’s can be used for up to two months, but keep an eye out for signs of mold and toss it if you get a wiff of any musty or mildewy odor.
