Fun with a loofah

.

The loofah that I bought at the shuk (for 18 shekels) was a big hit with my grandkids.
They had never heard of such a plant.
First Eyal pretended it was a telephone.
Then we played with it, and in the end we cut it up into five pieces.
The kids could hardly wait to get into the tub and try washing with their sponge-like loofahs.

You know what? I've never used a loofah. Now you've got me wondering.

That's the biggest loofah I have ever seen. The ones sold here are not even half the length of these ones.
