Green Clean: Scrub, Scrub, Scrub

What's the green way to stay clean? If it is exfoliation you're after, we've got three suggestions...

Organic loofah, shown above, is made from the "skeleton" of a member of the squash family. (Experts recommend periodically disinfecting loofah sponges with a weak bleach solution—we're not sure if there's a greener way to do that.) $3 at Vashon Organics.
 

Hemp washcloth. Feeling crafty? Knit your own with this free pattern from Haley Waxberg. (Not so crafty? You can find one online for less than $10.)
 

Salt scrub: we knew you could make your own salt scrub with some salt and a bit of fragrant oil, but did you know you can make your own salt? Hint: it helps if you live near the ocean...
