I have trouble growing luffas some years...this was one and I got just a few very small ones.

We use them for bath scrubbers and at the kitchen sink for washing dishes.  The dish scrubbers don't last as long as the bath ones but work well for quite awhile.  We just toss them in the compost when too soft and broken down to use anymore.

I cut them open to flatten and sew them to a band for a back scrubber also.

If anyone has some that haven't molded on the vine and were picked early enough to cure nicely I would be interested in buying them even uncleaned, with the dried peel on.  To cure well they need to be picked while the peel is still somewhat green but brittle and dry enough to remove and the sponge should be dry also.  If left on the vine until brown I've found that the sponge part starts breaking down and doesn't to hold up as well with use.
