Eorth Swedish Dish Cloths
EORTH® – Leaf Design Swedish Dishcloth.
If you’ve never used a Swedish Dishcloth before, then you’ve been missing out on an effective cleaning solution! It’s the perfect addition to any zero waste, plastic free kitchen. The Swedish dishcloth material is made from 70% wood cellulose from FSC certified forests and 30% cotton. These plastic free dishcloths are biodegradable and compostable and microfibre free.
Swedish dishcloths will last for 3-4 months before you can safely add them to your compost where they will breakdown and return back to nature.
The eco-friendly alternative to a kitchen sponge or paper towels.
How do I care for my zero waste dishcloth?
Swedish Dishcloths can be added to your load of laundry and washed with your regular clothes. The cloths will withstand dryer heat (should they get accidentally placed in the dryer), however they are made from a lightweight material and will quickly dry once removed from the washing machine, so they do not need to be hung on the line or placed in the clothes dryer.
You can also add your dishcloth to the dishwasher for cleaning, however they may not clean as well using this method.
How are Swedish Dishcloths different from any other cloth?
When you receive your new dishcloth it will be a rigid material. Simply wet the cloth to loosen it up and clean as usual. The cloth should be placed in an area that allows it to dry naturally between use, such as hanging it over the tap of the sink. However just laying it flat on the kitchen sink will also work! When the biodegradable dishcloth starts to dry it will return to its stiff textured material. Simply run the cloth under water for a few seconds to moisten the cloth again.
The cloth can be placed into the washing machine to remove any residue.
Why use a Swedish Dishcloth?
Most popular dishcloths on the market today are made from a microplastic material, commonly referred to as “microfibre.” Although these cloths will last a long time they are eventually destined for landfill. Unlike microplastic cloths, Swedish dishcloths are made from natural materials, they do not shed microplastic and when placed in your composting system they will eventually return back to nature.
