Dish Towels: Midcentury Kettle/Bowl/Cups

$20.50

Your mom’s kitchen never had it so stylish. THE SWEDISH ECO-FRIENDLY DISHCLOTH: The dry sponge cloth was invented in 1949 by the Swedish engineer Curt Lindquist, who discovered that a mixture of natural cellulose and cotton (70% cellulose and 30% cotton) can absorb an incredible 15 times its own weight in water. These thin Swedish dishcloths have had a presence in most Scandinavian homes since then. They make a great alternative to paper towels for general wiping up and light cleaning and are perfect for homes, cottages, kitchens, boats and bathrooms. When they become wet, they are very soft and they also dry very quickly. Quick drying fabric prevents bacteria from spreading. These can be machine washed at 140 degrees F and re-used. When they are ready for disposal, simply toss in your compost heap where they will biodegrade. With the charming, classic and modern designs, we are confident you will find many designs that you will love. 100% biodegradable and fully compostable means eco-friendly. Beautiful and affordable for gift giving. Our sponge cloth is made in Europe. Our Swedish dishcloths are individually printed with water-based inks. Each one measures approximately 6.75 x 8 inches. Functional Scandinavian design.

Description

  • Includes 3 dishcloths/sponge cloths
  • Designed by Anna Kovecses
  • Cotton
  • Printed in Sweden on European made sponge cloth using safe, water-soluble ink.
  • Each dishcloth (aka sponge cloth) measures 6.75” x 8”. Do not confuse these with a dish towel or tea towel. The Swedish dishcloth when wet is intended for gently wiping up spills and cleaning household surfaces including counter tops, granite, stainless steel, refrigerator shelves, glass, non-stick surfaces and more.
  • REPLACE PAPER TOWELS: Machine washable and reusable. Will withstand a couple hundred washings. Each dishcloth will replace 15-17 rolls of paper towel. This concept will not only save money but will also be friendly to our planet because there will be much less waste.
  • ECO-FRIENDLY AND BIODEGRADABLE FABRIC: The material is biodegradable because it is made of 70% natural wood pulp and 30% recycled cotton fiber. When you feel it should be discarded, simply put in your compost heap where it will degrade because of the nature of the material.
  • SUPER ABSORBENT: Super absorbent material that absorbs and holds 15 times its weight in water. The cloth is stiff at first, which allows them to be printed with beautiful illustrations but they become very soft and pliable when wet.
