The Natural Sea Sponge

SUGGESTIONS
These late August days inspire a deep clean and new rituals.
Consider the low-fuss simplicity of a natural sea sponge: perfectly imperfect, they’re a reminder that not everything needs to be just so. We like to keep a couple propped by the tub or stashed in a net bag for storage. Filled with innate enzymes and minerals, sea sponges are hypoallergenic and naturally exfoliating; we’d advise lathering up and scrubbing in a slow, gentle, circular motion. As summer subsides, off with the old: new routines are the name of the game.
