If you’re anything like the typical human who cringes at the sour smell of a dirty dish towel or sponge (which means that it’s infested with bacteria…ICK), then this is just one reason why you’ll love our Swedish dishcloths! Our handy and super cute dishcloths made of cellulose and cotton, are highly absorbent, and they can replace the need for paper towels, sponges and dish rags in most cases. Feel free to use them for wiping baby food off of a counter, crumbs off the stove or even the remains of that tasty homemade lasagna off of your dishes. We’re positive that Swedish dishcloths will be your new best friend in the kitchen – here’s why!

More time for coffee drinking on the couch? Heck yes.

A Swedish dishcloth is a practical kitchen tool that dries super quick, minimizing the opportunity for bacteria to start growing. Once bacteria are present, you’ll start noticing that unpleasant smell in your dish rags that seems to linger on everything they ‘clean.’ If you’re tired of noticing this smell on your dish rags after just a couple uses, or you’re now cringing at the thought of these bad boys spreading loads of bacteria to every surface they touch, Swedish dishcloths will be a breath of fresh air for you!

With the easy to spot smell that recurs when using dishcloths and sponges, it’s likely that you’re constantly washing them in the dishwasher or boiling them clean. Or, you just plug your nose and end up using them…because you’re thinking, “Didn’t I JUST wash this anyway?” We know the feeling.

Swedish dishcloths will save you this hassle and minimize the need for continuously washing your dish rags because of their speedy drying ability. However, if they do start smelling over time or they just need a good clean, all you have to do is pop them in the laundry or dishwasher and you’re good to go! Another plus is that when you do have to wash them, they won’t crumble or pill up like a normal sponge.

Money savings…? Yes, please.

Our Swedish dishcloths hold their shape much longer than your typical sponge and have adorable and unique designs on them. With new designs constantly coming out, by the time your Swedish dishcloth comes to the end of its life (which is quite a decent amount of time), you’ll likely have even more great designs to choose from!

While a typical sponge only lasts four to six weeks, these high-quality dishcloths should last you 4-6 months, meaning fewer sponges in your shopping cart and more money in your pocket. Not to mention that our Swedish dishcloths bring a pretty pop of color to your kitchen that grimy sponges just don’t offer – it’s a win-win!

Cheers to helping the environment!

You won’t just save money on not buying new sponges every other month - you’ll also save on paper towel use! Did you know paper products take up nearly a quarter of our landfills? The good news is that one Swedish dishcloth can replace about 17 rolls of paper towels, resulting in less for you to throw away every single day. 

Swedish dishcloths are also biodegradable. So, while you won’t be using nearly as many paper towels that pile up in landfills, you can feel even better knowing that these dishcloths are eco-friendly. Although these Swedish dishcloths are a great alternative to paper towels, we still recommend using paper towels on the super grimy stuff, like soaking up bacon grease for instance! For just about everything else – Swedish dishcloths are a go!  


If you’ve been looking for a better alternative to the always smelling dish rags, bacteria swelled sponges and the unfortunate, endless stream of paper towels going into your trash, you’ve found your solution! Grab a couple of Swedish dishcloths today for you and the loved ones in your life.
