Swedish dishcloths are designed to absorb like a sponge and wipe like a cloth. They replace paper towels, sponges and many other types of cloths. Swedish dishcloths are not abrasive. They are commonly used in the kitchen for washing dishes, wiping counters, cabinets, cleaning the refrigerator, microwave and more. Beyond the kitchen, our cloths are great for general cleaning such as damp dusting, washing windows, mopping the floor and cleaning the bathtub, sink and toilet. The list goes on - the uses are endless...so be creative!
