Eponge Abidjan Ivory Coast West Africa Tuesday, October 31, 2006
A French word, that I do not understand, the woman said, “Eponge du Mer,”
Maybe, Sponge of the Sea.
I have purchased 60 Meters of Eponge, this is about 60 Yards, and a meter is close enough to a Yard, which who cares, thinking the same.
In my last newsletter, I wrote a tip about Eponge, or some French plastic body scrubbing material. I have been using this stuff now for about a month, after I finally understood what it was used for, everyone tries to sell it to me, but it looks like plastic mesh net, not like something to clean the body.
This is a bar of soap and the plastic mesh.
This stuff is not sponge, it does not absorb any water, that is why I like it, it is more abrasive than a wash rag, but does the same job, sort of does a like scrap of the skin, taking off the loose, does not need to be part of me anymore stuff.
Storing a bar of soap is no longer a problem, this stuff wraps, and does not let go, the little plastic eats into the bar of soap and I can put the soap in my shower travel bag. The soap will dry because the material is a mesh, not a rag.
The bottom line, no mildew in the bag, this is plastic, water does not absorb into the plastic.
I purchased 60 meters, whereby when I finally get a first run of 50 backpack made to sell, I can load it up with hard to find, however great travel gear.
