Wild & Stone Compostable Swedish Dish Cloths – Set of 4

The Swedish dish cloth is an incredible and eco-friendly alternative to the traditional synthetic sponge or microfibre cleaning cloth.

These cloths can be used all around the house, on bathroom surfaces and kitchen countertops to dishes and everyday spills. These dishcloths are made in Sweden to create a top quality, authentic product.

Traditional cloths and sponges are made from plastics and cannot be recycled or composted. Millions of microplastics from cloths have also found their ways into oceans and into the stomachs of our wildlife.

They’re hygienic, reusable, and fully biodegradable, created from 70% FSC certified cellulose (natural wood fibre) and 30% waste cotton. The pack contains 4 different colours, which are handy to identify which cloth you use for where in the home. No more mixing up the dishcloth with the bathroom cloth.

What are Swedish dishcloths?
Invented in 1949 by Swedish engineer Curt Lindqvist, Swedish dishcloths are a cloth/sponge hybrid created from natural wood fibre and cotton, usually around the size of a book.

Compostable Swedish Dish Cloths – Set of 4

These dish cloths can absorb up to 15 times their own weight, clean up food and drink spills like a charm, and don’t leave streaks behind on windows or appliances. Once the cloth is dirty, you can easily throw it into your dishwasher or washing machine and it is like new again.

Why make the swap?

Most common household sponges and cloths usually only last a couple of weeks before they’re thrown away, contributing to plastic pollution for hundreds of years before breaking down into microplastics. They are also commonly made with nasty chemicals such as petroleum, bleach, and sulphates.

Care Instructions:

Dishwasher and washing machine safe. These cloths can be washed up to 90 degrees Celsius.
Avoid the drier, line dry this cloth.
Once you are finished with the cloth, you can cut it into strips and place it in your household compost bin.
