Cloth Dish Covers - Whale Song
100% cotton dish covers. Use them as an alternative to plastic wrap! These are handmade from breathable cotton, so are perfect for covering the rising dough that sits by the woodstove, for soaking beans or nuts away from curious cats who love water, or for covering produce or leftover salad in the fridge.
Hand block printed and hand sewn, these dish covers have serged edges and are stitched with elastic for a tight adjustable fit to most medium or large size bowls or small plates. Each dish cover is hand block printed with my original Whale Song design. Red (large) and turquoise (small). All inks are water based, non toxic, Speedball block print fabric ink.
I love that these dish covers breathe and don't build up condensation in the fridge and that they can be washed and reused. A breathable cover is preferred by some, because it allows for evaporation. Evaporation aids in cooling. A refrigerator is a very wet environment so your food won't dry out instantly. Depending on what it is, it may dry out after a few days. Alternatively, wrapping food in plastic will keep it moist and even add moisture due to condensation. Those droplets can carry toxins from the plastic to your food.
Removing single use plastics from my kitchen (and from landfills and our oceans) is something I've been striving for. These cloth dish covers make it convenient for me to break my plastic wrap habit.
This is a set of two cloth dish covers:
Large size (red ink)
Medium size (turquoise ink)
Wash on cold and tumble dry, or l ine dry to maintain longevity of the print and to prevent excessive shrinkage. Cotton will soften with time and use.
Due to the nature of block printing, there will be some variance of color in the ink.
I have the coolest covered dishes now and I love the artwork!
Help the environment AND support a Maine artist?? Of course. These cloth dish covers are stylish and super helpful for covering a wide variety of items in the fridge. I’m happy the food stays fresh and they’re fun to look at, too! Two sizes fit most regular size bowls.
