How to use and maintain it?
You must first pass the sponge under slightly warm water to make it malleable, until it becomes waterlogged, and wring it gently without twisting it (if the sponge is very dry it is best to place it in a container of water and let it soak for a few minutes). Then rinse the face and clean it with soap by making small circular gestures on the skin, which will cleanse, unclog the pores and activate blood circulation. Do not rub too vigorously, this could damage the epidermis. Rinse the sponge with lukewarm water so that it does not contain any more cleanser then press the sponge gently to evacuate the water without twisting it (which would risk damaging it). Then let it air dry, use the cord to hang it up. All you have to do is re-hydrate it the next time you use it. Properly used and stored, a sponge lasts about 3 months. If its texture changes, disintegrates, unfortunately it is the end of its lifespan.
On the other hand, if the use of the konjac sponge is occasional, it is better to place it in the refrigerator to preserve the freshness of its fibers and prevent it from drying out.
