Woven Ink WASHCLOUD Swedish Dishcloth
WASHCLOUD® is the eco-friendly Swedish dish sponge cloth from NoTox (makers of our fan favorite Zero-Waste Dish Block) that will clean up messes without paper waste and clean dishes more efficiently than a normal sponge. The gamechanger?! It's made with renewable, biodegradable materials!
In addition to being perfect for dish washing, these sponge cloths can also clean your kitchen surfaces and wipe up spills. Works wonderfully on counters, sinks and stovetops. Use wet or dry, anywhere you'd use a normal sponge. Anti-ick bonus: A fast-drying washable sponge like this will prevent that old sponge smell caused by built up food and bacteria.
How To Use
Wet: Wet cloth (it will puff up a bit with the water) and either rub on a solid dish soap bar or squirt with a few pumps of liquid dish soap to soap up, then wash dishes as you would with a normal sponge. The advantage of this product is the larger surface area, which cleans more quickly and efficiently than a smaller sponge.
Dry: Place dry cloth directly on wet messes to soak them up, or spray surface with a cleaning spray and wipe up with your dry cloth to absorb.
After washing with it, rinse it clean and squeeze dry, then lay to dry on a towel rack or on the edge of your counter so it can dry fully between uses. For a deeper clean/to sanitize, wash in the washing machine (and air dry) or in the top rack of the dishwasher. Rinse well after each use. Cellulose fibers will shrink slightly when dry.
Use the WASHCLOUD® until it begins to fall apart, we find it can last several months even with frequent washing in the washing machine.

Sponge dish cloths have been widely used in Scandinavian households and kitchens since being invented by a Swede in 1949, and are now becoming popular outside of Europe. These ultra-absorbent hybrid products can absorb 15 times their weight in water. WASHCLOUD® sponge cloths can replace 10+ rolls of disposable paper towels which is a huge money saver and saves the carbon emissions impact of cutting down trees for disposable paper products.
