Why Choose Safix?
Every time we wash up with a polyester/plastic scrub pad, microplastic particles can break off and be washed down the sink which could then end up in our waterways and oceans.
Choosing Safix Scrub Pads eliminates the risk of microplastics from polyester/plastic scrub pads entering our water systems via our sinks helping us to stop adding to the plastic pollution problem.
Safix Scrub Pads are a compostable natural coconut fibre scrub pad providing a great alternative to polyester scrub pads commonly in use today. The Safix scrub pads are made from natural coconut (coir) fibre bonded with a non toxic biodegradable adhesive and are suitable for use on most ‘non stick’ surfaces.
Safix has provided economic empowerment via employment for hundreds of women in rural India who otherwise have little access to employment, education or healthcare.
The Safix Product Range
The scrub pads come in two sizes, large and small.
Large: 10cm by 15cm
Small: 7cm by 10cm
In addition to the washing up, they are great for cleaning vegetables, the bathroom or anywhere else around the house. When you have finished with it, just throw it on the compost.
I was a bit dubious about buying this as I thought it would be quite hard to use compared to ordinary cloths or scrubbers. I am so surprised by how effective and bendy it is. I'll be buying more of these in future.
Very happy I bought it and would buy more. Some bits can get stuck in the fibers but no more than with regular plastic scrubbers.
Works well but bits of food can get stuck and a bit smelly if you don't clean it properly
But at least it’s not plastic. I was looking for an alternative to Scotchbrite fir my nonstick pan. Not as effective but I’ll keep trying.
