The natural kind. Not the plastic pom-poms you get from CVS.

It’s not (y)our fault!!! Every time you see a loofah, it’s surrounded by OCEAN PARAPHERNALIA.

I know what you’re thinking. That is NOT the ocean. I KNOW. But it’s true! They come from gourds!

Sponge gourds and luffa gourds, to be specific! And probably other gourds that I’m gonna hear about in the comment section.
