I know you're used to me and my rants by now but this is one of my more unusual blog posts.
My recent YouTube video sparked a debate as to what the above item is called. A LOT of people came back with 'loofah' but a loofah is a natural sponge made from a plant so although after a little google research I discovered it's a popular name for this I don't see why. So.. I tweeted the picture and asked what people called it.. here's what came back..
So.. as you can see it has many names depending on where you first heard of it or perhaps where you bought it. I can tell you that The Body Shop calls it a 'Bath Lilly' and lots of other retailers refer to them as 'Bath Scrunchies' but I am yet to find one that sells them under the name 'Loofah'
I am, I'm afraid, one of those people that when I know something isn't right will go all out to prove my point.. it's not an attractive trait and this is one of it's forms but people.. this is not a Loofah!
THIS is a Loofah..
You can get them on sticks, you an get them on mitts but you absolutely cannot get them made out of plastic netting on a bit of string. I don't know when this injustice began but I am here to tell you that this is a loofah.. accept no imitation!
I actually really like the bath scrunchie doodah's and was raving about them in the video (below) which led to said discussion and in turn this rant but I was overwhelmed at the amount of people that told me the scrunchie was a Loofah. If you are one of them I would be really interested to know why you call it that. Was it second hand information or have you seen it at a store somewhere?
I am perplexed!
Thanks to everyone that tweeted their names for this 'thing'!
