Product Details

This marvelously absorbent dishcloth from Sweden is a wonder in the kitchen. You'll never want to go back to sponges or regular cloths when you see how it works. It softens when wet & dries like a dream. They absorb 15 times their own weight, making them the premier cloths on kitchen surfaces.  Kitchen surfaces are virtually streak-free. Made of earth-friendly cellulose & cotton with water-based inks so they are compostable. Lasts about 9-12 months 

This amazing, natural dishcloth fabric was inventend in Sweden in 1949.  These cloths are durable enough for repeated machine-washings. 

Cleaning instructions:

Can be cleaned in the washing machine or in the top rack of the dishwasher.
Can also be boiled or microwaved (when damp) for 30 seconds.
Hang over the faucet or lay flat to air dry. Do not tumble dry.

Swedish dish cloth

I absolutely love these Swedish dish cloths. I have an 11 year old who leaves dirty finger prints EVERYWHERE and these cloths clean it right off without any work. They’re excellent counter top and table cleaners as well! I love them so much and when they get dingy I throw them in the laundry or in the dishwasher. SO MUCH BETTER THAN PAPER TOWELS! 😊

These are fantastic

I have been looking for an economical and practical way to reduce the amount of paper towels we use in my house. I received a set of two Swedish dishcloths in my MightyFix subscription and I LOVE them! They are so durable and great for scrubbing. I've been using them to clean my countertops and stovetop (which I would have cleaned with paper towels before). We still use paper towels for some things but these have reduced a good amount of waste so far. I'm very happy with them!

Also - I've washed them in the dishwasher a few times now and they hold up beautifully.

GREAT FIX!

GREAT FIX!

I absolutely love these dishcloths... they say to "replace paper towels", but they are much more versatile. They are strong enough to wash dishes and clean up the most stubborn mess. You just throw them in the washer and dryer (with the laundry balls of course) and they are good to go.

Awesome!!

I absolutely love the Swedish dish cloths! I use them for everything in my kitchen. I do wish I would have been given a better print (mine looks like a Swedish grandpa sweater print), so it's not the prettiest thing displayed on my kitchen counters!

A great alternative to sponges that fall apart and paper towels.

Handy little towels!

Handy little towels!

I bought one of these just to try, and I really like it. They have the texture of a paper towel, but they are thick and really sturdy. I've used mine every single day for about a month and it hasn't shown any sign of wear yet. I just drape it over the faucet of the sink and it dries completely. These are very cool, will definitely be buying some more.

A cloth with many uses!

So I've been using these in my kitchen and bathroom for routine cleaning (which I love), but then I decided I would also try them in my shower routine! Voila! My new favorite "sponge" to use with my shower gels and soaps!

I use these dishcloths to wipe counters, spills, etc and I love them. They are very absorbent and easy to rinse out after use. Since I received 2 with my monthly subscription, I put one in the dishwasher every time I run it (every 2-3 days) to keep them clean.

Amazing!

Amazing!

I tried these out for the first time tonite, and they are fabulous! I was skeptical when they first arrived because theyre stiff and weird feeling when dry, but once they're wet, omg! They clean like a dream and feel like a super thick paper towel.. I'm going to order a bunch and try to cut out paper towels completely.

Love These!

I’ve never been a sponge person because to me sponges don’t dry so quickly and so take on an odor, but not these. Perfect for clean up and they dry really quickly. I toss them into the dishwasher to refresh them. I’m finding I’m even using them Instead of paper towels.

Works well

Works well

I've always been a sponge girl. When it comes to washing dishes, rags just don't do it for me. I got these in my MF along with some dish soap I just happened to order the same month. I figured I'd give it a shot. These things definitely work. I may still use my sponges from time to time, but these cloths will definitely be a new addition to my kitchen.

Swedish Dishcloths are just the thing!

Swedish Dishcloths are just the thing!

I LOVE these Swedish Dishcloths. Quite a few years ago I started eliminating unnecessary waste from my life. I use dish towels instead of paper towels, have glass storage containers for leftovers, I've got lots of mason jars. carry reusable bags. I've got a steam cleaner for cleaning the floors and bathroom surfaces. All in all its been great. The one thing I hadn't be able to part with was a sponge to do my dishes. Dish cloths just didn't absorb enough, in stepped these and man on man! They are perfect, they absorb like a sponge and was up like a dream. I just throw them in the washing machine (don't have dishwasher)and hang to dry. <3

Great reusable "paper towel"

Great reusable "paper towel"

These things are great to use in place of paper towels. One use I found handy: you know how it's a good idea to include damp paper towels when wrapping up some veggies for storage? You can use these instead. They stay just the right dampness and keep their shape.

I am absolutely in love with these dishcloths. I've used one to clean my sink, counters, tables and stovetop. It is super absorbent, cleans without streaking so far and is all around amazing. I haven't used them to wash dishes since I have something else but theylse are probably going to replace my ppertowels in most instances. Fabulous product.

I love this. It really does a great job on my black range. It's the only cleaning product that hasn't left streaks. This has always been a big problem. I have used it for days and it still doesn't smell bad either.

Great paper towel replacement

These are super absorbant and no gross smell. I have used them to clean up spills on laminate floors, quartz counters, stove, and microwave. They are much more absorbant than paper towels . Just ring them out and continue wiping. Easily wash them on the top rack of the dishwasher or use hot soapy water in the sink. Also great on cleaning dishes.

I enjoy these cloths! They do a wonderful job of cleaning dishes, dry quickly, and do not develop the mildew smell. I launder them every few days. Mine did not have a sulfur smell at all, so perhaps the other reviewers got a bad batch?

These dishcloths come in bright, pretty designs and are wonderful to use. They dry quickly after use and don't get musty smelling like all cotton would. They are best for wiping down surfaces and washing flat dishes; not ideal for scrubbing.

I love the designs and how getting them wet enhances the textures. Mine did not have an odor when dry and only a faint trace when wet. I prefer a scrubby sponge for dishes but like rags for cleaning surfaces. I am curious how they are with staining.

Am bringing a few as gifts to my daughter and also a couple of friends when I visit next month. I think they can't help but love them too. Would be nice if there were a discounted price when you purchase more than one....because price is my only hesitation.

I've just ordered my third because i am in love with these dish cloths! They clean so much better than my regular dishcloths and even take care of all the water spots leaving my kitchen all sparkly. Love that they are so durable and fun at the same time! Makes doing dishes and cleaning my kitchen that much better!

These are the best dishcloths! They are just the right size and are very durable. It doesn't hurt that they have nice little patterns. I'm getting more!

Review by on

These Swedish Dishcloths are awesome! I thought they were rather strange because they were unusual but, my daughter told me I would love them and she was right! The first time I got one wet, I was amazed. I started using them for everything immediately! They quickly turned a dingy color which I don't care for at all but, they are so awesome that I won't stop using them. In four months with continual use, they have held up perfectly. There is no wear only the dingy appearance. I'm hoping they will start making these in colors so that the dingy appearance is not so obvious!

Pretty neat!

Pretty neat!

Got as a mightyfix. We already use cloth to wash dishes and counters with. These are really neat, but not very scrubby (even using the "scrubby" side). No issues with smells like other people have said. I really like having them on hand for when my young child has a spill since they absorb so much so quickly!

Review by on

These are very surprising-in a good way! I wish they were a little bigger. I think they are on the small side when washing dishes.

Stained

Stained

I really love using these to wipe off my counter tops! The only problem is how stained they get, they look filthy even though I have cleaned them. I wish they came in dark colors to hide the stains!

Great Texture, but how do you get them clean?

Great Texture, but how do you get them clean?

The texture and material is great for cleaning. But how do you get them clean? We've washed in clothes washer & dishwasher. I think the instructions said "no conditioner," but can't find the card. We've had ours about 5 weeks. Ugly brown stains, probably coffee spills and stove cleanup residue.

A bit overrated

A bit overrated

These are decently absorbent, but for the price I think they're overrated! I can get regular cloth dishcloths for way less and they work just as well. These also have a funk for the first couple of times using them.

Work well but smell moldy

Work well but smell moldy

I received these in my MightFix and was really excited for the first couple weeks of using, but then they got a horrible moldy smell. I've washed them in the washing machine on a regular basis, and the smell is still there. I'm confused as to how they even got moldy, because they dry out so quickly! They do stain, although that doesn't bother me. They work great other than the smell!

So, so disappointed! I thought I was ordering tea towels, but those are dish cloths. Nice pattern but tiny.

Rotten smell
Review by on
Rotten smell

Looks like I got a bad batch, too. When I first wet my washcloth, I got a huge waft of rotten egg smell. I emailed MightyNest about the issue and was told the following:

We did hear this complaint from a handful of other customers who received product from the same batch of towels. We reached out to the manufacturer and they explained that the biodegradable materials of the cloth are blended through a process that utilizes a sulfate mineral in the process. When the batch does not have ample air time prior to packaging, the smell is strong like you have experienced. It will dissipate over time and with air exposure.

Over time the smell has died, but I wish I would've been compensated for the inconvenience.

Smells bad

Smells bad

I really like the idea of these, but they smell so bad! My whole kitchen smelled of sulfur. I've only seen 1 other person complain of this so I don't know if we got a bad batch or what. I would love to use these, but I don't think I can. I just got one wet and the smell got worse.

Smelled like burning rubber

I couldn't stand to use the one I bought because once it got wet, it immediately smelled like burning rubber.

Not what I was hoping for

I loved the designs, so, without giving it much thought, I ordered several for myself and some more for gifts. Fortunately, I tried them before giving any away. I'll just say that mine only got used once, and all the others I ordered are still sitting in my closet and I have no. earthly. idea. what to do with them! They get so so stiff after use, and the smell is another matter entirely!

What is that smell?

What is that smell?

I never got to try these because they smelled so bad. As soon as i opened my package all i could smell is rotten eggs. I tried to wet them thinking that the smell would lessen and it was worse. We had to put our garbage in the garage because the smell was so strong and wouldn't go away. I liked the design on the towel but that smell just ruined it for me.
