Compostable cellulose and cotton dishcloths are natural multipurpose eco-friendly sponge cleaning cloths. Transform everyday cleaning with earth-friendly, reusable dish cloths, replacing your plastic sponges, microfibre cloths and paper towels. 

  • Saving you money replaces single-use paper towels. Our eco dish cloths are 100% biodegradable; you can use one cloth over 150 times. Simply rinse and wash, air dry and reuse it again and again. 
  • Buying a 12-pack of eco cloths means you are buying bulk, and you save on the cost per cloth, you save time on reordering and shipping, and you do your bit to save our planet by reducing waste going to landfills.
  • Reusable super absorbent eco sponge cloths will absorb 20 times their weight and replace 17 rolls of paper towels, plastic sponges, and microfibre cloths, which are not generally recyclable or biodegradable. Happy days! 

 Why we love eco sponge cloths: 

  • Made from natural wood pulp cellulose and cotton.
  • FSC-certified fabric cloth made in Germany in the Swedish dishcloth tradition.
  • Our cleaning cloths are soft when wet and quickly dry too hard to prevent bacteria, mould and germ growth. 
  • EKOH cleaning cloths are 100% biodegradable with no nasty micro-plastics.
  • Eco sponge cloths are dishwasher, machine washable and microwave safe. 
  • Ethically made and zero waste to landfill.
  • Ideal for Stainless Steel appliances cleaning.
  • Reusable, wipe sticky fingers and soft enough to use as a damp napkin or serviette.

    How to care for your eco sponge cloth: 
    • The dishcloths are made from natural materials, so they will shrink and expand, changing size 
    • Machine washable - Washing machine or dishwasher
    • To sterilise, pop damp in the microwave for 20 seconds or use a soaker and hot water
    • Do not Tumble dry 
    • Air dry 
    • Excessive rubbing or wringing of the dishcloth can damage the natural ink used in printing, so take care


    PRO eco cleaning tips:  

    • Colour code your cleaning chores - bathroom one colour cloth, kitchen another colour cloth and so on. 
    • Perfect cleaning cloth for any type of surface, from an indoor plant's leaves, wiping down mirrors and windows or the bathtub to your benchtop in the kitchen and kitchen appliances and washing dishes. 
    • Use the eco sponge cloth as a damp, non-scratch polishing cloth; it dries and cleans shiny surfaces streak-free and lint-free.
    •  For best polishing results, wet cloth and squeeze out excess water. Wipe over spills and residue in a circular direction.
    •  If the surface is wet, use the cloth dry to mop up the liquid or spill.
    • Non-Scratch cloth can be used to wipe down the interior of our car, clean chrome and as a shammy.

How to dispose of eco cleaning cloths : 

  • Your Swedish dishcloth is 100% biodegradable, so you can bury it, feed your worm farm or compost bin, and no nasty microplastics. If you don't have the option to home compost, simply pop it into your curbside green waste bin. 
  • Our dishcloth packing is 100% recyclable, so it can be binned in the recycle bin or composted.

Live up to their claims!

I bought this product to be more environmentally friendly. I find them to live up to their claims and like the patterns. Will purchase again.

They’re keepers for me!

I’m past the age and point of holding onto things that serve no purpose. So I’m happy that these dishcloths can be tossed at any time. They’re pretty durable in the bathroom as well as the kitchen. Double points!! I picked up the assorted colors so it’s easy to tell which cloth belongs to which room or cleaning section. I loooooove that they’re reusable in a way that I find sponges are not after I deep clean. Also I needed these because Sponge Daddy is the new wave but not everything needs to be “scrubbed.” Some things have to be WIPED. My favorite feature is that I was able to wipe down my white walls that were stained by my pup’s paws and not peel off the paint. They’re keepers for me.

Awesome pack of Swedish Cloths

This is an awesome pack of Swedish Cloths. We use a fresh one every other day or so and use it for quick cleanup around the kitchen. I can say that using these for the past couple weeks instead of reaching for a paper towel has been working out great. We also have one cloth dedicated to use on our steel pan since you shouldn’t watch them with soap. I like that they dry quickly and that there are several colors in the package. You could designate specific colors for cleaning bathrooms or the kitchen.
We have washed them in the washing machine fine and so far they are holding up. I’m wholly committed to cutting back on paper towels now - I’ll keep buying these as long as they continue to hold up.

BETTER than paper towels!

I really don’t like to use paper towels.Sometimes there is a mess and its too much for a normal kitchen towel.These are great for those messes!
They are actually BETTER than paper towels!
I love that I can just throw them in the wash with other kitchen towels and then reuse!

Good overall value

I like these Swedish dishcloths. I try to use paper towel alternatives as much as possible and these are easy to use and clean. They dry quickly, which is a plus! I think these are a good overall value.

If you don't have 'em; Get 'em

I've seen swedish dish cloths for I don't know how long... I always wondered what the hype was. I ordered these on a whim to try and see if I could see what the big deal was. Ummm... they are AWESOME! I've said it before and I will say it again... my house was built in the 80's when people bought less and used less so my cabinets, closets, walk-ways, rooms, etc. are smaller than what I would like them to be.

The swedish dish cloths are firm when dry... like stiff... and then you get them wet and they wilt. It is pretty neat for the kiddos too! They are such space savers and fit perfectly in my small drawers.

They also get the job done for washing dishes which is the whole point to using them (or cleaning counters, etc.)

Some swedish dishcloths are like $7/each so this pack does feel like a bargain.
