How to Clean Your Foot Scrubber or Body Buffer
Our terra cotta tools last practically forever, because they're fired in a kiln. Normally, they stay pretty clean between uses, especially if you rinse them well after you use them, because unlike a pumice stone, the rough texture is just on the surface.
We recommend using liquid soap, shower gel or shampoo with your terra-cotta tool, instead of bar soap, which gets lodged in the pumicey and ribbed textures. If you have soap buildup already, simply use a nail brush and plenty of water to remove the soap.
For daily care, simply rinse after use and use a nail brush to remove any excess buildup. Let dry and store in a dry area.
If your Foot Scrubber gets really bad, or gets moldy, brush it using a nail brush on any cracks or openings to remove buildup, and then soak it in a cup of water to which you've added a tablespoon of bleach for an hour or two. Add a couple of drops of liquid soap, and then brush again. Rinse well and let dry. If it was moldy, a couple hours in direct sunlight can help, too.
Foot Scrubbers, Scrubbies and Body Buffers are also dishwasher safe.
