You probably already know that your kitchen sponge is dirtier than a toilet seat, smelly, breeding ground for any number of disgusting bacteria and could also lead to PARALYSIS.
You throw them out regularly for this very reason. But what about your nylon loofah, hanging in your shower? The damp nylon loofah is a perfect breeding ground for all sorts of nasty bacteria, that makes your skin look dull, aggravate acne-prone skin, and even infect cuts.
Loofahs are really good for getting rid of dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth and conditioned. Scrubbing your skin with loofahs two to three times a week will surely enhance circulation and promote the excretory function of the skin, but old loofahs will do no good but only harm your body. You cant see the tiny critters , bacteria, mold and germs, which makes your skin even more dangerous.
Deadly bacterium is attracted to moisture in the loofahs, they love to grow in the nook and crannies of a loofah. They mainly infect you through broken skin, nicks and cuts from shaving. After you’re done scrubbing, you just leave the loofah in the bathroom until its next use. This paves the ground for bacteria to cultivate. The shower environment is humid, there’s not a lot of air circulation, and it’s a great place for bacteria to multiple. These bacteria eat those discarded skin cells left behind in the loofah.
So the next time you use it, you’re showering with yesterday’s dirt back on your body. After use, you may start developing pimples, they may not be too painful, although they are itchy. Using it on your face, arms, or legs can prompt the development of folliculitis and even perleche. As the sores progress, they eventually fill with pus and then break to form a disgusting, thick deep yellow crust. Finally they are highly contagious and can spread to other parts of your body or to other people who touch anything you have used—like a loofah.
Just toss your nylon shower loofah and replace for something else like dry brushing.
Use loofahs made out of natural substances rather than nylon puffs, it has no harsh or artificial chemicals. They prevent a lot of bacteria buildup.
Clean the puffs by simply allowing them to soak for a short while in a solution of detergent or bleach.
A natural sea sponge is a good alternative.
Always shake your loofah off after every use to remove any excess water and moisture.
Dry the loofahs completely between uses.
Replace your loofah every three to four weeks.
So enjoy your shower, but keep these things in mind for a germ-free, luxurious bath experience.
