5 Ways to use your Swedish cleaning cloths

  • Replace paper towel for cleaning up spills and wiping down surfaces
  • Replace all your fabric dishcloths with the Swedish cleaning cloth - toss in dishwasher to sanitize when it needs a wash
  • Dedicate one for bathroom cleaning - holds up to strong cleaning solutions
  • Use to polish your stainless steel appliances for a streak free finish
  • Replace paper towels for glass cleaning - windows will gleam
Bonus: when it gets worn out (6-12 months) you can compost it because it's totally biodegradable!
