What is special about a Swedish dishcloth?

Swedish dishcloths are an amazing product to add to your “bee-friendly” household. They can be used to scrub, mop, wipe, polish and clean every surface!

Sponge cloths are:

  • 100% compostable and biodegradable; they are made of wood pulp and cotton
  • Machine washable – up to 200 washes and they won’t fall apart
  • Able to absorb up to 20x it’s weight
  •  Money savers – each cloth replaces up to 17 rolls of paper towels
  •  Time and space saver – stay out of the paper goods aisle in the supermarket and free up your closet space!

The natural dishcloth material was invented in Sweden in 1949 but ours are made by a family owned business in the United States. We support other small businesses made in the USA.

How to Care for your Dishcloths

Swedish dishcloths are easy to care for. It is just important to know that extended high temperatures will shrink the dishcloths and reduce their lifespan.

  • Machine wash: toss in with your regular laundry. DO NOT add to the dryer.
  • Dishwasher: put your dishcloth(s) on the top shelf of the dishwasher. Be sure to turn off the drying cycle.
  • Microwave: put damp cloth in microwave (or boiling water) for 1 minute

Hang your washcloth over a faucet or lay flat to air dry.

Best Swedish Dish Cloths

Our bee lovers will love the cheerful patterns on each cloth that stay fresh and bright without fading. Your set  of three comes with one of each pattern: The Honey Tree of Life; Fresh Honey and Honeycomb; and Bees in Nature.

Swedish Dishcloths (or sponge cloths) are waste-free and ecofriendly. They typically last at least 6 months and are definitely worth your investment.

Swedish Dishcloths are Better Than Sponges

Traditional kitchen sponges are porous and thick; they take a long time to dry.

Swedish dish cloths are quick drying and less hospitable to bacteria, most of which need moisture to thrive.  Despite their thickness, they are super absorbent.

They are also easily washed in your washing machine or the top shelf of your dishwasher.

Swedish Dishcloths Make Bee-U-T-Full Gifts

Sponge cloths make a great housewarming gift or a useful gift to a new apartment kitchen. Backyard Bees Green Gifts section has lots of  other ideas.

People are amazed at how durable they are and really happy when they realize they need to buy paper towels anymore.

Swedish dishcloths are are must have for anyone trying to live a low waste lifestyle. Living green and bee-ing well is a part of the Backyard Bees philosophy.
