A tawashi is a traditional Japanese scrubbing brush used for washing off dirt and mud. The kamenoko tawashi (turtle tawashi) is a tradition tawashi made from the hemp palm fibre. It is hard and durable yet flexible, excellent for scrubbing potatoes and other root vegetables, washing kitchen utensils, bathtubs, muddy shoes and the like.
