Along with having a cool print these dishcloths are also sustainable and will help you save money over time. Unlike some sponges which have petroleum-based chemicals in them, Swedish dishcloths are made from 2 natural ingredients: cellulose + cotton. Swedish dishcloths are reusable and can last up to 9-12 months. They are a great replacement for both your paper towels and your dish sponge. These eco- sponges are super absorbent and can hold 17 x their weight in liquid. Swedish dishcloths are easy to clean, you can hand wash them, throw them in the dishwasher or washing machine, and let them air dry.
