Swedish dishcloths by Eco Collective

The ultimate compostable sponge - Replace over 15 rolls of paper towels with just one dish cloth!

Our highly absorbent sponge mops up large spills in just one swipe. It can hold up to 20x its weight in water. It's great for scrubbing and surface cleaning (streak-free), and works well on counter tops, granite, steel and glass.

Made with our mantra "everything comes in waves." Each sponge can be reused and washed about 200 times. It's made of a cotton cellulose blend, meaning it's 100% biodegradable and compostable. 

It's far more hygienic than a sponge because it doesn't trap microbes and it also won't crumble or pill. Air dries quickly to stay fresh and ready for use.

Dishwasher safe!


6.5 x 8 in.

Use and care

Let dry when not in use by laying it over the sink divider or faucet.

It can be cleaned in a washing machine or dishwasher (top rack). Let it air dry - do not tumble dry or it may shrink.

To sanitize, it can be boiled or microwaved (dampen first) for one minute. Let cool before handling.

BEST new kitchen tool

The absorption of this tiny cloth is crazy!
I only bought one for me as I bought others to give us gifts. I’m super excited to gift these now that I know how useful they are. I used mine for wiping down the counters and it left no streaks. I washed dishes with it, dried dishes, cleaned my fridge. They are much easier to use than a dishrag because of the size. All I had to do between jobs was rinse it out in a little soapy water. I’ll be replacing all of my dishrags with these eventually. Highly recommend it!

Fantastic for wiping up spills

I use these all the time instead of sponges, rags, or paper towels for wiping counters and surfaces. They don't smell, they stay sturdy, and they can be cleaned and sanitized to extend their life even further.

Great replacement for cleaning rags

I love these for mopping up spills, drying dishes, and cleaning countertops. They seem much more sanitary than dish/cleaning rags and don't carry a musty smell.
