Swedish dish cloths Australia are becoming increasingly popular due to their environmentally friendly benefits and aesthetic appeal in the home. When I used my first Swedish dish cloth, I realised I could never go back to a regular cleaning kitchen sponge. My first impression was how much more absorbent Swedish dish cloths are, more attractive and more hygienic.
What are Swedish dish cloths?
The original Swedish dish cloths were invented in 1949 by a Swedish Engineer. They are a specialty kitchen cloth made from a mixture of plant-based cellulose and cotton compositions. The unique formula produces dry flat sheets like a cloth yet has very high absorption properties of a sponge. Once wet, the cloth feels beautifully soft and malleable.
Swedish dish cloths are manufactured in many countries worldwide due to their increasing popularity and waste saving benefits, replacing up to 17 rolls of paper towel. Swedish dish cloths don’t crumble or pill and can be reused for many months.
Swedish dish cloths are known to be one of the most sanitary ways to clean your kitchen.
