How to use a Swedish dishcloth:
When dry, Swedish dishcloths are somewhat “hard,” making them perfect for stuck-on messes. For those tough messes use a dry cloth at first to break them down. As you wet your dishcloth they’ll become super soft and perfect for cleaning the remaining grime. While cleaning you can constantly wring out the towel just like a cloth.
How to wash a Swedish dishcloth:
Wash your dishcloth in a standard washing machine or the top rack of a dishwasher! Air dry. Reuse and re-wash your dish cloths for many months.
Swedish Dishcloths are considered the “premium standard” in Scandinavia. Contrary to the standard North American 100% cotton kitchen towels, Swedish dishcloths are a versatile and premium towel that can be used in a variety of applications ranging from your kitchen to your car and even outdoors. The combination of all natural cellulose and premium cotton result in the most absorbent and durable cleaning towel on the market. That’s the main reason they’ve become known as a better alternative to cotton kitchen towels or paper towels.
The clothes were exactly as anticipated! Beautiful and a huge hit with the recipient of the gift. :)
Beautiful, handcrafted, functional art
I'm loving the Swedish Dishcloths already. The block printed design is simply lovely and makes me smile each time I grab a cloth. They mop up counter messes easily and they've significantly cut down on paper towel usage. I'm hoping Meredith makes more so I can snap some up for Christmas gifts!! Im excited to buy other block printed work from this caring and talented Maine artist :)
