If you can't envision a single shower without your loofah, New York dermatologist, Dr. Sejal Shah, suggests you replace it frequently, every three to four weeks to be exact, especially if it's a natural loofah. If that loofah ends up changing color, developing a stinky smell, or forms mold spots, throw it away at once and get yourself a new loofah. In the end, avoid the bacterial growth and risk of irritation or infection by replacing your loofah on a monthly basis. Hence, Club Loofah. We got you, bbs.
