These dishcloths are durable, reusable and can replace up to 15 rolls of paper towels! They are highly absorbent which makes them perfect to tackle any mess in the kitchen, bathroom or general house cleaning! They are made from cellulose (wood pulp) and cotton which means they are plastic-free and back yard compostable. Due to the nature of the materials used, they are naturally anti-bacterial meaning they won't get the gross "dishcloth" smell. Each cloth can be washed and reused and typically lasts for 9-12 months, depending on use! Washing/ Care: Dishcloths can be washed in your washing machine, leave out to air dry.
