Paper towels are convenient to use, but they’re not eco-friendly. Since they can’t be recycled, about 6 million pounds of paper towels end up in landfills each year. Global paper towel production also requires an estimated 110 million trees and 130 billion gallons of water to produce, it is simply not the way forward.
Additionally, kitchen sponges made from polyurethane and polyester are generally not recyclable because they contain a large quantity of petroleum-based materials which makes their recycling impossible.
By choosing sustainable alternatives like our Sponge Cloth XL, you are helping to solve the plastic crisis and reduce carbon emissions. By replacing your synthetic kitchen sponges and reducing paper towel usage with our plant-based sponge cloths, you not only save money, but also help manage waste and pollution.
These simple, smart, and pretty sponge cloths are made of 70% wood cellulose and 30% recycled cotton fiber. They are like a cross between a dishcloth and a
sponge, and they can do anything a sponge can do and most of the things a paper towel can do. You can soak up spills, wash and dry the dishes, use them like
coasters, clean mirrors and glass without leaving any lint behind, and can be applied to most surfaces.
It is biodegradable and compostable. This means when the dishcloth reaches the end of its life span (usually 12-15 months), if disposed of properly in a
recycle bin, it can decompose quickly when it reaches a landfill. In a compost environment, it is capable of disintegrating quickly leaving no toxicity in the

Don't be alarmed when it hardens, it is in its normal state. If there's a spill, simply lay it on top of the spill and soak it up. If you need to wipe the table, simply dampen and soften it with water, add a little cleaning agent and you are ready to go!
Washing your sponge cloth is easy. You can just rinse it out and let it air dry, but when it starts to get soiled, simply put it in the top rack of your dishwasher, or even toss it in the laundry, just make sure the settings are on the lowest temperature. Once washed, wring it out and let it air dry (I usually just lay mine over the dish rack or clothes hanger).
Warning: Sponge cloths will shrink when exposed to high temperatures.
