Disposable dish cloth
is a soft, washable towel that you can use for cleaning, drying, and wiping surfaces in the kitchen. It's available in a wide variety of materials and can be made from cotton, polyester, or a blend.
The most absorbent kitchen towels are looped terry cloths. These towels are great for hand-washing dishes, rinsing countertops and even drying hands. They are also a good choice for drying dishes after they're tossed in the dishwasher because they speed up the drying process without leaving behind any lint.
Tightly woven cotton materials, like flour sack towels, are another option for dish towels. These towels are highly absorbent and can dry dishes quickly, yet they don't leave lint or cause streaks. They're also a more sustainable alternative to paper towels, which often require large amounts of energy and water to make and can produce an excess amount of waste.
Swedish dishcloths are also a much healthier option for your kitchen than paper towels or sponges because they don't hold moisture like a sponge does. A study found that kitchen sponges trap bacteria, making them a potential breeding ground for pathogens.
In addition to their benefits for the environment, reusable Swedish dishcloths are also more affordable than paper towels and provide an efficient and effective solution for everyday messes. In fact, two Swedish dishcloths equal a whopping 34 paper towel rolls!
