The Swedish dishcloth was invented in 1949 by Swedish engineer Curt Lindquist. He discovered that a mixture of natural wood cellulose and cotton fibers can absorb an incredible 15 times its own weight.


Today, this dishcloth is widely used to replace paper towels and synthetic dishcloths as it is able to breakdown naturally without harming our environment.


By the way, it has many names, some may call it  "sponge dish cloth" or "cellulose dish cloth", "kitchen sponge cloth", "European dishcloth" or "Swedish sponge", but we just like to call it "sponge cloth". Whatever name it is called, it is an essential cleaning tool for any modern and sustainable home.


Made from the same patented material of a Swedish dishcloth, the sponge towel is an elongated version of the Swedish dishcloth. By laying them out next to each other under your dish rack or next to the sink, they can act as a drying mat for bowls, plates, pots, pans, cutlery and any utensils.


Widely used to replace paper towels and synthetic dishcloths, statistics have shown that almost every home in Sweden stocks this wonderful dishcloths. We know that 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 towel, 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 towels, you not only save money, but also help manage waste and pollution.


These simple, smart, and pretty sponge towels are made of 70% wood cellulose and 30% recycled cotton fiber. They are like a cross between a paper towel 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. 
They dry fast and actually hardens thus preventing bacteria build up and unwanted smells.


Sponge towels are biodegradable and compostable. This means when they reach the end of their life span (usually 9-12 months), if disposed of properly in a recycle bin, it can decompose quickly once it reaches a landfill. In a compost environment, it is capable of disintegrating quickly leaving no toxicity in the soil.
