Popular in Scandinavian households since the 1940's, Swedish dishcloths are more efficient than a normal sponge, are biodegradable, and can replace approximately 10 or more rolls of paper towels. They can even absorb more than 15 times their weight in water. Bye-bye, paper towels!
They're great not only for doing dishes, but also for wiping down countertops and general cleaning. Made of 30% cotton and 70% cellulose, they are easy on the environment and help you save money!
To use, simply wet and ring out any excess water. They can be tossed in the dishwasher or washing machine, allowing you to use one towel over and over again.
