Compostable Swedish Dish Cloths - Set of 4

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 9 reviews


The Swedish dishcloth is an incredible and eco-friendly alternative to the traditional synthetic sponge or microfibre cleaning cloth.

These cloths can be used all around the house, on bathroom surfaces and kitchen countertops to dishes and everyday spills. These dishcloths are made in Sweden to create a top quality, authentic product.

Traditional cloths and sponges are made from plastics and cannot be recycled or composted. Millions of microplastics from cloths have also found their ways into oceans and into the stomachs of our wildlife.

They’re hygienic, reusable, and fully biodegradable, created from 70% FSC® certified cellulose (natural wood fibre) and 30% waste cotton. The pack contains 4 different colours, which are handy to identify which cloth you use for where in the home. No more mixing up the dishcloth with the bathroom cloth.

More Info

Invented in 1949 by Swedish engineer Curt Lindqvist, Swedish dishcloths are a cloth/sponge hybrid created from natural wood fibre and cotton, usually around the size of a book.

These cloths can absorb up to 15 times their own weight, clean up food and drink spills like a charm, and don’t leave streaks behind on windows or appliances. Once the cloth is dirty, you can easily throw it into your dishwasher or washing machine and it is like new again.

Most common household sponges and cloths usually only last a couple of weeks before they’re thrown away, contributing to plastic pollution for hundreds of years before breaking down into microplastics. They are also commonly made with nasty chemicals such as petroleum, bleach, and sulphates.

FSC® is a globally recognised certification scheme. This means that the wood fibre used in this product is certified against the principles and criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council®, including values such as maintaining the forest’s ecosystem, upholding indigenous people’s rights of land ownership, and a commitment to maintain or enhance the forests used.
