If you have never had a Swedish Dishcloth in your kitchen before, you're missing out! The super-absorbent and intelligent design makes the cloth hold 15 times its weight in water. There is no job too big for these dishcloths. They soften when in contact with water and dries very quickly. They are fully machine washable, and made from eco-friendly material so you feel good about using them. The cotton/cellulose material makes the entire dish cloth 100% biodegradable. No more sponges or paper towels. The Swedish dish cloth is here to stay!
